Curbed Cup 1st Round: (3) Brickell vs (14) Aventura

Can Aventura rally for the upset?

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!

(3) Brickell

Miami’s heart continues to beat with increasing intensity. Brickell City Centre got up and running this year with an Italian food hall set to open shortly. A new development comprised of five single family homes is under construction and condos continue to sprout.

Brickell made it to the Final Four last year before falling to eventual champ Wynwood by a narrow four-point margin.

(14) Aventura

To the north is Aventura, whose mammoth mall continues to expand with the impending opening of its new food court. A very sleek new office complex launched sales and Privé at Island Estates was recently completed. Aventura is unquestionably a large underdog in this one.
