Curbed Cup 2nd Round: Brickell (3) vs. Coconut Grove (6)

A fierce battle in Round 2

The Curbed Cup, our annual award for Miami’s neighborhood of the year, features 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.

(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. Aventura was defeated by Brickell in the opening round.

(6) Coconut Grove

It’s been another busy year for the Grove, which won the Curbed Cup in 2015 and blew past Pinecrest in Round 1.

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.
