Inter Miami CF released a video today that showed new renderings of a stadium proposed at Miami Freedom Park.
In the new video, a roof appears to shield most fans from sun and rain while leaving the field under open air, in a concept similar to that at Hard Rock Stadium. Arquitectonica, the firm previously announced as the architect for Beckham’s stadium, also was the architect for the roof at the Hard Rock.
The roof appears to be white with pink illumination at night, and may also be either translucent or reflective.
A large plaza is shown next to the stadium, along with a lineup of parking garages with rooftop soccer.
A series of other buildings is also shown, which has been said to be a hotel and a tech hub.
Japan’s Softbank announced plans today for a new $5 billion Softbank Innovation Fund, which would have offices in Miami and a focus on Lain America. Softbank COO Marcelo Claure, a partner with Beckham in the Freedom Park project, will oversee the fund (Softbank founder and CEO Masayoshi Son is also a partner in the Miami project).
The location of the Softbank Innovation Fund office hasn’t been announced, but one obvious choice could be the Freedom Park tech hub.
