The Curbed Cup, our annual award for Miami’s neighborhood of the year, is kicking off with 16 neighborhoods vying for the prestigious (fake) trophy. We’ll reveal each of the neighborhoods this week, and polls will be open for 24 hours so you can cast your vote as to which ones should advance. Let the eliminations commence!
Our opening matchup is underway with No. 1 Wynwood taking on No. 16 Kendall.
The second matchup of the day is a battle of opposites and should be a good one: No. 8 Edgewater faces No. 9 Little Havana.
Still one of Miami’s fastest-growing neighborhoods, the area just north of Miami’s core is swimming in new multi-family development, including the finished Biscayne Beach and nearly-completed offerings like Aria on the Bay and 2500 Biscayne. Breaking ground this Fall was Missoni Baia while Elysee plans to go vertical shortly.
Little Havana, one of Miami’s most historic neighborhoods, plans to open its first museum in the coming months and saw an apartment honoring Celia Cruz break ground last month.
One thing that hasn’t helped the area as much as anticipated is Marlins Park, which will continue to struggle to draw fans after trading MVP Giancarlo Stanton.
This poll closes on Tuesday at 2:15 p.m.
