Curbed Cup Round 2: (3) Wynwood/Midtown vs. (6) Downtown Miami

Nearby neighborhoods go at it in Round 2

Two nearby neighborhoods clash in the second round of the Curbed Cup.

Voting ends 24 hours after it begins.

(3) Wynwood/Midtown

Wynwood/Midtown blew through Aventura in the opening round as it continues its ascension as one of Miami’s hottest 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.

(6) Downtown Miami

While its development cycle isn’t quite as nutty as Brickell, downtown Miami is a changing, with the late Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum rising along with Paramount Miami Worldcenter, and another luxury condo (Aston Martin Residences) in the pipeline.

Miami’s core wasn’t without its share of drama in 2016, however, with Miami-Dade College slamming the brakes on a drama-infused project that would’ve transformed Miami’s skyline.

It was also announced Bayside would undergo a much-needed facelift.
