The 2016 Curbed Cup, our annual award for the South Florida’s neighborhood of the year, is kicking off with 16 areas vying for the prestigious (fake) trophy. This week we'll have two matchups per day, and all the results and the full tournament bracket will be reviewed on Friday. Voting for each pairing ends 24 hours after it begins. Let the eliminations commence!

Note: The full bracket will be unveiled on Friday. Keep track of all Curbed Cup updates here.

(8) Surfside

Surfside should be a threat this year according to Curbed reader Howard, who nominated the area based “on exciting new developments, shopping, restaurants, walkability, the ocean, an oceanside community center, its own police force and classic beach house architecture,” among other reasons.

The neighborhood fell in Round 1 last year, but it has a lot to offer as we head into 2017, including some solid food options like Josh’s Deli, a quiet beach, and unique projects like like 88 Hundred Collins and the major renovation at Surf Club.

(9) Sunny Isles Beach

Sunny Isles Beach is rapidly becoming home to the most lavish new condo developments in South Florida, with Jade Signature, Porsche Design Tower, Turnberry Ocean Club, and Estates at Acqualina, to name a handful.

At least ten units on the market are priced at over $15 million.

It’s among the more beautiful areas, sandwiched between the ocean and intracoastal.
