Curbed Cup Championship: Brickell vs. Downtown

A champion will be crowned on January 2

The Curbed Cup, our annual award for Miami’s neighborhood of the year, features 16 neighborhoods vying for the prestigious (fake) trophy. The championship matchup will be open until 2018 hits.

(3) Brickell

Brickell City Centre got up and running this year and an Italian food hall is set to open shortly. A new development comprised of five single family homes is under construction and, according to a report from EWM’s David Siddons Group, there continues to be a massive oversupply of condos (over seven years of inventory in the $750K-$1M range).

Brickell made it to the Final Four last year before falling to eventual champ Wynwood by a narrow four-point margin and looks to dive into 2018 as a Curbed Cup champion.

(5) Downtown

The downtown area continues to evolve into a true live-work-play destination.

Art Miami moved to the old Miami Herald site, city streets are being considered for a Formula One race, Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum is rocketing up as the bustling apartment/condo seen continues to push westward, and the Frost Museum of Science finally opened its doors.

After dismantling No. 1 Wynwood in the previous round, does downtown have enough juice to take the crown? Voting closes January 2 at midnight.
