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. Polls will be open for 24 hours so you can cast your vote as to which ones should advance.

The second round of the Curbed Cup begins with an intriguing matchup of neighbors just north of downtown Miami.

(1) Wynwood

Our defending champion (also encompasses Midtown) defeated Kendall by a hefty margin in the opening round.

Wynwood’s retail/restaurant scene is exploding of late with projects like Wynwood Walk under construction and a new Asian food hall opening recently. The colorful neighborhood’s art scene still remains among Miami’s elite despite many Art Week events moving to different parts of the city this year.

(8) Edgewater

Edgewater advanced past Little Havana in Round 1.

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 (pictured) and 2500 Biscayne. Breaking ground this Fall was Missoni Baia while Elysee plans to go vertical shortly.
