Mayor: Beckham Should Build Parking Garage At Stadium, Metrorail Too Far

Miami mayor Tomas Regalado wants David Beckham to build a parking garage at his proposed MLS soccer stadium in Overtown, according to Sports Buzz.

Beckham’s group is planning to build the stadium without a garage, instead relying on existing parking and mass transit. There are 7,000 parking spaces within a 10 minute walk, and the Culmer Metrorail station is three blocks away.

Regalado told Sports Buzz: “I really don’t know how you could possibly walk from Culmer. I think it’s too far.”

Beckham is planning to wrap up site acquisition and zoning approvals by June, with construction beginning shortly thereafter.
