Let the eliminations commence!

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

(3) Wynwood/Midtown

The Wynwood/Midtown area continues its ascension as one of Miami’s hottest young neighborhoods.

Whether it’s Miami Art Week, excellent dining options, fun happy hours, or residential buildings sprouting in bunches—we’re on pace for Midtown 45 by 2020—the neighborhood is booming.

Development news this year included the completion of Wynwood Arcade (hello, Salty Donut), the rise of Hyde Midtown, Zak the Baker’s expansion, and nude Donald Trump statue drama.

(14) Aventura

Aventura is another one of those areas amid extensive action.

Echo Aventura is finished, the fascinating Privé at Island Estates recently topped off, and Aventura ParkSquare broke ground.

The year also showed tremendous value remains for renters and buyers in the area, compared to some neighborhoods to the south.
