Curbed Cup Round 2: (2) Brickell vs. (7) Coral Gables

City life or suburbia?

We’ve got two big-name neighborhoods clashing on Day 2 of the Curbed Cup’s second round.

Voting ends 24 hours after it begins.

(2) Brickell

Brickell eased past Kendall in Round 1, and remains one of the fastest growing areas in South Florida. 2016 has been a monstrous year for the ever-evolving area south of downtown Miami.

The $1 billion Brickell City Centre opened its retail doors recently after its hotel, East, Miamiopened to great reception earlier in the year. Condo towers continue to be proposed with inventory approaching staggering levels.

One reader, Stephanie, nominated Brickell because it’s “the most exciting place to live in South Florida.” It’s hard to argue against that.

(7) Coral Gables

There’s been a lot of action emanating from the Gables in the real estate world in 2016, including the opening of a new movie theater, plans for an indoor football facility at the University of Miami, and plenty of listings with celebrity ties (Bob Griese, Cher, Prince Royce, and Bacardi).
