West Kendall is “The guardians of the EVERGLADES.” Said the ex 11th District Commissioner, Juan Zapata. The fun, family friendly community is a rapidly growing, suburban community in Miami dotted with low-rise condominiums, shopping centers, corporate parks and a burgeoning business community.
The nearby Palms at Town and Country, Kendall Village Shopping Center, and Dadeland Mall, one of the most profitable malls in the country, attract local and visiting shoppers predominantly from Latin America. The Falls, an open-air shopping alternative to Dadeland, is just south of West Kendall in the Pinecrest Community.
West Kendall is in close proximity to Kendall, the Hammocks, Sabal Chase, and the Crossings. It enjoys access to the Palmetto Expressway and Kendall Drive and is an easy commute to Miami International Airport, Downtown Miami and Metrozoo.
Many entertainment and dining options are available to its residents and visitors ranging from ice skating to movies to local restaurants featuring Latin American fare influenced by its vibrant Hispanic population particularly its Cuban, Peruvian, Colombian, Nicaraguan, and Chilean residents.
Jorge Pena, founded the West Kendall Business Association, now called Greater Kendall Business Association live by the name “The friendliest place to do Business”. There is a lot of truth to that, go by and say hello to one of their events.
West Kendall is served by Metrobus with connections to Metrorail at Dadeland Station.
