Kendall

Miami suburb

Kendall is a census-designated place in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. Much of what is now Kendall was purchased from the State of Florida in 1883 by the Florida Land and Mortgage Company. It was named for Henry John Broughton Kendall, a director of Florida Land and Mortgage who moved to the area in the 1900s to manage the company’s land. As the land was not open to homesteading, development was slow well into the 20th century. A post office opened in 1914, and the first school opened in 1929. After the end of the land boom in 1926, some residents left. Two Seminole camps were in the Kendall area, and Seminoles continued to live there into the 1940s. Kendall is the site of Dadeland Mall, an upscale indoor shopping mall in East Kendall with Macy’s, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and JCPenney as anchor stores. In South Kendall, directly south of Dadeland Mall on US-1 is The Falls (mall), an open-air shopping mall with Macy’s and Bloomingdales as anchor stores as well as a Regal Cinema.

In 2000, the median household income was $51,330 and the median family income was $61,241. Males had a median income of $42,875 and females $31,416. The per capita income was $27,914. Climate in Kendall is naturally similar to the remainder of Miami-Dade County, although its location and elevation inland along the Miami Rock Ridge does make it slightly cooler at night during the winter and slightly warmer during the day in the summer. The first public school in Kendall was Kendall School, now renamed Kenwood K-8 Center. Kenwood is the site of the Kenwoods Hammock, a native forest planting which has become a world-renowned stop for bird watchers. In 2000, Kendall had the twenty-first highest percentage of Cuban-American residents in the United States, at 21.3%. As a result of the city’s large French community, the French American School of Miami is located in Kendall. Kendall is also the home of Sofigi.

The location

Learn about Kendall

While the US Census Bureau has defined the boundaries of Kendall, many locals have their own definitions. Some believe the communities of West Kendall, Glenvar Heights, Sunset, Olympia Heights, Westwood Lakes and Tamiami to all be sub-communities of Kendall, Miami while some people also believe the neighborhood of The Falls to be a separate entity. Kendall is served by the Miami Metrorail at Dadeland North and Dadeland South stations in its northeastern end. Both stations provide metro service from Dadeland to nearby commercial centers like the City of Coral Gables, Downtown Miami, and Miami International Airport. Dadeland South station is a major transit depot in the area, connecting the southernmost cities of Homestead and Florida City to Metrorail via limited-stop bus rapid transit along the South Miami-Dade Busway.
