Museum Park becomes battle ground for Beckham’s stadium


A rendering of Museum Park

Quote:
More than a decade ago, activists struggled against — and ultimately defeated — a proposal to build a baseball stadium on Miami’s waterfront. Now community organizers face a new battle: David Beckham’s campaign for a pro soccer stadium at Museum Park.

The Beckham group proposes to fill in the site’s slip and take a 4.2-acre chunk of the new park’s roughly 19 acres of public green space to accommodate a 20,000-seat stadium, according to the Miami Herald. The plan pledges to add 8.5 acres of green space behind the stadium, for a 4.3-acre net gain in public space.

“It’s much more than 20 percent better. It’s 100 percent better,” Beckham’s real estate advisor, John Alschuler said.

But the proposal has generated criticism from some downtown residents. The condo associations of four towers across from the park site oppose the plan.
Some say they bought units in the towers expecting to eventually have an unobstructed view of green space in Museum Park. Those expectations are now threatened.

The site for Beckham’s stadium would be developed by Miami’s Arquitectonica firm.

This looks very good. It would really brighten up the area. Heck, they could connect this to the Bayside Marketplace and Bayfront Park to create a whole line of parks and attractions across the street from the wall of skyscrapers. The area would be even more attractive.

MLS gives boot to Beckham’s Marlins Park stadium idea



Quote:
Major League Soccer doesn’t want David Beckham’s Miami stadium to be located next to the Marlins Park in Little Havana.

“No — we’re not considering that location,” MLS President Mark Abbott told the Miami Herald. “Our strong belief is that, to be successful, it needs to be downtown.”

Recently, politicians had begun to promote the Marlins site, and it could be difficult for Beckham to find another piece of public land for his private stadium that his investors find suitable, according to the Miami Herald.
The stadium would seat between 20,000 and 25,000 fans and cost as much as $250 million.

David Beckham Irreverently Lets Go of Dream Stadium Site

Quote:
After giving it a good go, David Beckham is finally branching out from his minefield-ladden dream of building Miami's glamorous new, TV-ready Major League soccer stadium on a waterfront Downtown site, which is fabulous because if he kept announcing sites just to have them get beaten up on by just about everybody the whole stadium idea might have sunk fast.

Beckham's love for Miami still endures, and he's willing to build an inland stadium to make it happen! And Miami is not about to lose what will be a fantastic new sports franchise for the city because of a couple pimply proposals. And he's got a few more options up his tailored sleeves, but he's not revealing them yet. "My dream was to have our stadium on a waterfront. It's not worked out like that and we have alternative sites. It will happen." he said, along with saying he'd been "cheeky" about the earlier plans.

Some news on the stadium:

Miami-Dade County Planning to Extend MetroMover Loop to MLS/UM Joint Stadium Site

Quote:
Miami-Dade County Commissioners are close to releasing a plan to extend a MetroMover loop from Government Center in the heart of Downtown Miami to a potential shared stadium for UM/MLS at the Former Orange Bowl site. The mover would allow MLS Miami fans to board the train from their favorite soccer bars in Downtown before the game and allow UM students the ability to board and attend games from stations near their college campus. These plans are in the preliminary phases but have huge support from the community and Miami-Dade County Commission – according to the plans creator – Commissioner Bruno Barreiro.

Though the plans are in preliminary phases, we know it would include a light rail loop from Government Center in Downtown Miami. The loop would go directly west from Government Center then turn north to dock between Marlins Stadium and the UM/MLS shared stadium. Loops have recently been built in Downtown to the Omni area and Brickell that have been very successful.

MLS and UM are currently ironing out the details for a plan to build a 40,000-seat stadium on the former Orange Bowl site. UM officials including Donna Shalala met with David Beckham, Marcelo Claure, Simon Fuller and MLS Commissioner Don Garber two weeks ago to discuss the partnership. The negotiations went well and plans have since moved forward. We are expecting to hear plans for a stadium and MetroMover in the next couple weeks.

I still think UM football and MLS soccer should not share a stadium
the marlins park site seems small for a good size stadium.
Have you heard about the orlando MLS, they upgraded the size to 25,000
and dont have to share it with anyone.

PortMiami Land Once Eyed By Beckham For Soccer Stadium Could Get A Hotel And Convention Center

Quote:
A company is proposing to develop a project called Miami Yacht Harbor at PortMiami, on land where David Beckham wanted to build a soccer stadium.

MITC-2015 Inc. is the company that is pushing the proposal. Rene LaComb, who was part of an investment group last year that unsuccessfully tried to take over the Miami Marine Stadium last year, is the company’s principal.

The project could include a convention center, hotel, and yacht marina on 8.7 acres at the southwest corner of the port. Dade County’s 2035 Master Plan for the port envisions exactly that type of development.

Marine Spill Response Corporation currently has a long term lease for most of the land. Dade commissioners will vote this week to authorize negotiations that would move them to another part of the port at no cost.

Details of a lease for the valuable plan have yet to be worked out, but MITC-2015 claims that the project could generate $76 million for the county over the first ten years, including lease payments, sales tax and ad valorem tax.

The Downtown Development Authority last year wrote a letter opposing commercial development at the port, saying that it would flood the market and cause a glut of space.

Beckham’s plans to build a soccer stadium on the land were killed after Royal Caribbean funded a campaign opposing the stadium there, while also threatening to move their cruise ships elsewhere. RCL has a below-market lease for their headquarters building and parking lot on adjacent land, and a stadium would have blocked their views of downtown.

Dade’s Trade and Tourism Committee will vote on whether to begin negotiations later this week.
