What’s next for David Beckham’s MLS soccer stadium?

Voters gave David Beckham and the Mas brothers the green light to move forward with their plans to bring a Major League Soccer stadium and an ambitious mixed-use project to Miami.
But what happens next?
The project known as Freedom Park could include a 25,000-square-foot soccer stadium as well as more than 1 million square feet of retail and office space and about 750 hotel rooms on a site that is now home to a public golf course. In total, the development is valued at $1 billion and will be built on 73 acres out of the 131-acre Melreese Country Club.

The next step would be negotiations on a 99-year lease. But talks with the group, led by Jorge and Jose Mas, Beckham, Marcelo Claure and Masayoshi Son, and city administrators are on hold until the city resolves an ethics complaint filed with the Miami-Dade Commission on Ethics and Public Trust last week by attorney David Winker, according to the Miami Herald. The complaint alleges the developers never registered as lobbyists before asking commissioners to place their proposal on the ballot.
It is unclear how long it will take the city to resolve the complaint or if other complaints will follow.
Once negotiations are complete, four out of five Miami commissioners will have to give final approval to the lease. Currently, the specific terms have not been decided, including exactly what the owners will pay for the development site.

Hopefully, all before the Inter Miami team is set to play in the summer of 2020.
