David Beckham’s partner, Jorge Mas, is presenting a plan for a major mixed-use soccer complex in the city of Miami, and is expected to make the proposal public at a meeting of the City of Miami Commission next month. .
Beckham and his partners officially announced the Major League Soccer team earlier this year, but stadium plans, including location, have been on the air for years. But, an executive of MasTec, confirmed on Tuesday the plans for a “world-class park, football Villa and technology center”.
The group hired Arquitectónica to design representations of the plan, which requires a stadium, a hotel, a commercial space, public soccer fields and a public park, according to the Miami Herald. According to reports, Mas will also meet with commissioners from the city of Miami this week, and plans to present the plans at the commission meeting on July 12.
Voters of the City of Miami should approve any plan to redevelop the Melreese Golf Course, it is rumored to be the preferred location of the Mas brothers’ stadium. To do so in the November vote, commissioners should approve a referendum on July 12 or July 26.
The group is not expected to choose Overtown, where Beckham and his partners collected 6 acres for $ 19 million in 2016 and are under contract to buy another 3 acres of the county. Another potential site is in Doral, where David Martin and Stephen Bittel own a large site leased to PepsiCo.
