Melreese Golf Course now appears to be closed, with multiple construction permits now in process for David Beckham’s Miami Freedom Park.
As of yesterday, a closed gate was in place at the front of Melreese, with the grass beginning to become overgrown.
Records show a permit for total demolition of a building on the property is being processed by Miami’s Building Department. The permit application was submitted in March 2023, with Miami Freedom Park listed as the tenant/lessee.
A tree permit was applied for on May 24. A total of 731 trees are to be removed, the permit filing states.
There’s also another tree permit in process for the removal of 227 trees on an adjacent parcel that also makes up the Miami Freedom Park site. That permit was applied for on May 8.
A site work permit for the main parcel was applied for in March. The work is estimated to be valued at $30,759,715, in the excavation/piles/site and soil improvement category.
Another site work permit for the adjacent parcel was also applied for in March, with work there estimated to be worth $5,240,284.
Melreese gate closed. A Google Maps listing states the golf course is permanently closed:
