    Kendall / Falls / Dadeland

    Kendall is an unincorporated community in suburban Miami-Dade County located between South Dixie Highway west to Florida’s Turnpike and from 878 Expressway south to SW 152 Street. The history of the Kendall/Falls area begins in 1883, when much of the land was purchased from the State of Florida by the Florida Land and Mortgage Company.

    Kendall is an unincorporated community in suburban Miami-Dade County located between South Dixie Highway west to Florida’s Turnpike and from 878 Expressway south to SW 152 Street. The history of the Kendall/Falls area begins in 1883, when much of the land was purchased from the State of Florida by the Florida Land and Mortgage Company. The first post office did not open until 1914 and the first school opened in 1929. The development of the land was slow until the 1926 land boom. There were also Seminoles that continued to live on the land into the 1940s.

    As Kendall became a center for urban sprawl in south Florida post-World War II, development in the then-desolate area began in earnest in 1960 with the completion of Palmetto Expressway (Florida 826) and Dadeland Mall, the largest shopping mall in greater Miami at the time. Rapid transit service from Dadeland into Downtown Miami commenced with the completion of the Miami Metrorail in 1984. Residential and office complexes were constructed in the Dadeland area in the 1990s and 2000s due to a unique zoning that allowed dense and high-rise development in the triangular area between US-1 and the Palmetto Expressway south of the 878 Expressway.

    Like most of the communities in South Florida, many homes were destroyed during Hurricane Andrew in 1992. The community had to slowly rebuilt homes and businesses. The area offers restaurants of all types of cuisine plus shopping at Town and Country Mall and The Falls in addition to Dadeland Mall. Kendall’s large and diverse community has something for everyone. As a desirable place to live, work and play, Kendall/Falls/Dadeland is central to all of what South Florida has to offer.
