Beckham Releases Revised Renderings Of Soccer Stadium After Referendum Success

David Beckham has released new renderings of the soccer stadium he is planning to build, which will replace the Melreese Golf Course.

The renderings were released after voters approved negotiations with Beckham. They appear to be different from those presented to commissioners earlier this year.

Beckham’s team will be known as Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami. He told Designboom that he was directly involved in design of the club’s new crest, which features the heron, a bird native to Miami, along with heavy use of the color pink .

The Arquitectonica-designed stadium will include 25,000 seats. The remaining park space will be one of the biggest green spaces in greater Miami.

Looks nice!

Roberto

Yes Dan,
I am loving the design too. I hope it actually ends looking like the renderings.

Anonymous

It won’t. These things never look like the renderings.

William

This looks really smart and well done. Kudos to the design team.

Correct me if I am wrong but the 4th photo show the stadium closest to the train station, that I believe would be a great decision. Just build a covered walkway with fans blowing on those hot summer days. I am so happy this is happening and I am proud of everyone who took the time to go out and vote on Tuesday. Can’t wait to get season tickets!

Keep waiting. Manolo Reyes and Willy Gort will vote against this. You need 4 commissioners to agree tot he deal.

They will change their votes, their entire district voted yes on tuesday.

Smart voters hate corruption

The residents surrounding Melreese Park, meaning voters, voted No to demolishing their park. Worse, for the promoters the voters in Coconut Grove also voted No to killing the park. New candidates to run for the D2 seat are aware this issue can sink Selfie Boy.

You mean “Melreese Golf Course,” right?

No bids?

Reyes and Gort are aggressively opposed to the No-Bid scam.

Great location!!!.

We should see also other alternatives besides Arquitectonica for stadiums design; AECOM for instance is doing some outstanding stadiums worldwide.

One of the examples…

Wow Arquitectonica actually made something nice!

with inspiration from literally everyone else that should have designed it

Dan

It would be better if the stadium wasn’t on the part of lot that’s closest to the airport.

You want it to be as close to the Miami Intermodal transit hub as possible I would imagine.

marc

Which it isn’t as it’s closer to LeJeune than it is Douglas.

Bait and switch.

Wheres the covered pathway from the metrorail station.

and the bike lanes?

marc

I heard it will be a moving walkway lined with fans and misters so people won’t complain about the walk.

People will still find a way to complain…

Yeah… like, “the moving walkway moves too slow!”

And the Mcdonalds ? How am I supposed to eat a Big Mac while watching the game ? 🙁

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You know, since Burger King is headquartered here, I wouldn’t hate it if a giant Whopper Bar opened in the area.

Yup, the Whopper was born about 60 years ago right here in Miami after all. With the first Burger King near by as well. 3090 N.W. 36th Street in Miami

Centrally located.. with train access from South and North rail lines.

Yes, there’s parking, you just can’t see it.

Bonus. Don’t forget this project will clean up an old ash dump.

No it won’t cause Mas won’t pay for the cleanup costs and will try to get federal and state funding. Just wait and see.

Tourist and local attraction

Anonymous

Tourists don’t visit MLS stadiums. Locals won’t go as it will be a traffic nightmare and too much bad will when people miss their flights.

Missed plane flights? Definitely!

Planes, Trains, Automobiles nearby.

tourist do go to entertainment centers like this one and locals can take metrorail to the stadium

You mean an office park with some retail next to an airport? Yeah big tourist draw. Tourists will continue going to South Beach and Bayside marketplace before they catch their cruise. They also would probably go to the Miami Dream Mall if it’s ever built than this sorry excuse.

Who cares if people miss their flight? That’s not our problem it’s theirs for being that stupid! You might as well say airports shouldn’t have food an retail because it will make people miss a flight. Who cares, your worried about the wrong thing

Wow. This looks beautiful! Miami doesn’t stop winning!!

Adding a pedestrian overpass from the Intermodal Center to the stadium would be nice for both fans and those driving to and from MIA.

This gives me a hard on!!!

Mauricio’s Claure’s Brightstar is located in Medley and Doral. Jorge MAs’ Mastec is located in Coral Gables and he lives in Pinecrest. In fact, his victory party that our so called mayor went to happened in Coral Gables. David Beckham is planning on buying a house in Miami Beach. If these people actually cared about the City of Miami than why don’t they locate their companies here? Or actually live here? This stadium and park are being built for Doral and Coral Gables residents while screwing over the City of Miami taxpayer.

Man, you must’ve really strained hard to get your eyes to tear up.

To Top Golf or not to Top Golf? Each batch of renders keeps changing between that & the lake (pond?) that’s currently drawn…

Definitively needs Top Golf on or adjacent.

Anonymous

Yes.. and I can definitely see this park hosting many outdoor concerts and events!

peej

definitely agreed on its need!

But it would have to be incorporated into the site plan, there’s no room nearby–the site is bordered by the Airport to the West, Dolphin Expressway to the South, Intermodal Center / Hotels to the North, and single-family homes to the East.

FIFA WC stadiums mandate a minimum 35,000 seating capacity. I understand we have Hard rock but isnt the city of miami trying to be a host city for the 2026 WC? Seems to me like a stadium with public transportation (lets hope it gets used) would be a better option than Hard Rock

Is that a dock on the lagoon in the center ? We can Jetski ? or ?

The club name is too cumbersome and too foreign for an American team. Unless you already know, you can’t even guess it’s soccer. Not very Internet searchable either, a marketing must these days. “Miami United MLS” would have been ideal, with the initials in MLS denoting the sport.

Anonymous

Everyone already knows them as Inter Miami, not too hard.

Ex-Londoner now in 33132

Agreed—because the official name is too unwieldy, people [and media like me] will default-refer to them as Inter Miami.

How about Miami Associated MLS – the MAMLS.

The majority did! And unlike the stupid Electoral College, in this case it means something.

Steve Hagen, Green Park Advocate

All who care about green parks in Miami should be aware that all City owned green space in Miami which is covered over must be replaced elsewhere in Miami. Also be aware PARK POOR Miami needs 25 new neighborhood parks so residents have access to a park in a ten minute walk. This is clearly stated in the Parks Master Plan. Mr. Mas spoke about creating a legacy in Miami when he addressed the Miami Commission. There is a once in a lifetime opportunity here for parks and soccer in conjunction with this massive commercial development if he, Mr. Beckham and the Commission honor Miami legislation and the Parks Master Plan. Or will residents needs for neighborhood parks be ignored? To date it appears Mayor Suarez is not interested in following the legislation nor the Parks Master Plan or these details would have been part of the deal presented to the voters. In a conversation with me several weeks before the vote, Mayor Suarez failed to commit to park land replacement. This is not the proper leadership! Indeed, Mel Reese is zoned Civic Space just like our green parks. Surely the voters did not approve the elimination of green park/civic… Read more »

And you must be aware that there’s already plenty of parks in Miami that woefully underused.

And there is the obligatory ugly palm tree in every architects rendering…I suppose a project would get rejected in Miami if it did not include it. How boring.

I hope you do understand that palm trees are native to this hurricane prone territory.

Pe there is space to run a Metrorail extension should that ever come to pass.

I wonder what changes he made to the design after it was pasted

pasted ? :/

I guess Mas insisted on a Spanish name for the stadium. Despicable!

Gee, and you wonder why Trump and other nationalists are rising to power.

What are those fields to the right of the rendering ? Baseball ?

Golf?

Golf? Where is the 18 hole golf course? Mel Reese Golf Club? First Tee Miami.

“Miami United” would have been a better name. It taps into Beckham’s old team name and symbolizes what we hope to be in all things. The name of the team is just too damn long.

Anonymous

You are obviously not a soccer fan, there is already a D.C. United and Atlanta United, did we really need a third one? The shorter version of our name is Inter Miami which I think it reflects our culture Miami is definitely International. Starting with little Havana, little Haiti, Weston = Little Venezuela, Kendall = Little Colombia, and let’s not forget Sunny Isles = Little Russia.

NoMLSAtAnyCost

I agree we should come up with something WAY more original, how about:

Real Miami
Miami Aresnal
Miamiventus
Bayern Miami
AC Miami

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Besides Aresnal those all sound horrible…
