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!
(6) Coconut Grove
It’s been another busy year for the Grove, which won the Curbed Cup in 2015.
CocoWalk is being upgraded. New office space is on the rise. Several residential projects are either under construction (Arbor and Park Grove), completed (Grove at Grand Bay) or in the pipeline (Glasshaus). There’s also been several iconic home sales (including Alfred Browning Parker’s Woodsong) and new Marlins owner Derek Jeter is a tenant.
New to this year’s bracket is Pinecrest, an affluent neighborhood in a good school district housing many South Florida athletes — Heat guard Dion Waiters snagged an enormous mansion recently and teammate Tyler Johnson is asking just under $5 million for his manse.
