New Renderings Of Beckham’s Inter Miami Stadium, After Softbank Announces Office For $5B Fund Here

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.

Wheres the pathway connecting Airport Metrorail station.

Anonymous

Didn’t you hear? Soccer fans don’t walk or take mass transit.

It’s a convenient excuse to get the ball rolling on the planned line extension along 37th Avenue to Douglas Road Station.

The Inter Miami lease should include a provision for Metrorail right of way.

The Canal should be buried in a 26′ round culvert. And full pedestrian access made available.

This same canal is buried all around the airport and no one see’s it, but its there (look carefully).

Huge opportunity to connect a TOD with a boat load of pedestrians.

This is a pipe dream. The same thing that happened to the New York team will happen here. They decided to start at an “Interim” Stadium in the hopes of building a new one and moving into it in two years… that was 4 years ago and counting. SMH

The obvious choice for SoftBank office is downtown at brightline, since they own fortress, parent company of FEC.

I say World Center. Exactly the kind of development appropriate for a World Center.

Love the team, but a pink stadium? Seriously? SMH
That is one color I just can’t stand.

If you don’t like pink, you’re in the wrong city.

There isn’t a more Miami color thank pink. Go away

this lighting scheme would be reminiscent to the Allianz stadium in Munich that changes color. and that stadium is pretty nice. you just dont like the idea of the stadoum, not the color/lighting of it.

I hope it flops.

Boo Mas. Boo Inter Miami. Boo this stadium. Boo Beckham. Boo stupid Joe Carollo. Boo crooked Hardemon. Boo Franny Suarez.

I’m not ashamed of my comment.

This process left a bad taste in my mouth and I’ve lost complete interest in the venture. I was once very excited.

I agree. Unfortunately most people that check this site out say “development at all costs”.. then they complain about traffic, the environment, etc. Idiocy at the finest level.

Any serious fund will open offices in Downtown or Brickell not next to the airport.

Anonymous

An you know this because you own a few offices?

Anonymous

Brickell is the financial capital of latin america. if softbank is opening a latin america office, why wouldn’t they be there…

they need to attract top talent and top talent usually doesn’t want to be in a suburban office park.

Inconvenient Truth

ALL of South Florida’s Fortune 500 companies are HQ’d in suburban office parks except for AutoNation (downtown Ft. Lauderdale).

Very true, why have they she’d away from downtown? I think perception has a lot to do with it.

Anonymous

in addition to the offices near dadeland south. this would be the other office park served by metrorail. therefore, it is still connected to brickell in some way.

suburban office park?? This is Central Miami less than 10 minutes from all- Airport, Health District, BrightLine, TrailRail, surronded by highway connectors. Perfect space between Downtown and Doral.

Based on which theory all the offices have to be in the downtown area???

The roof reminds me of a vagina. Also, someone made a good point, where’s the connection to the Metrorail station??????

They can call it the toilet bowl…

Miami corruption at it again!

Anonymous

What I don’t understand is, why the necessity of so many soccer fields outside this stadium? And being that these soccer fields are so close to one another, what happens if a ball from one soccer field lands on another while there’s multiple games going on?

Anonymous

Just an easy way for them to try to “hide” the fact that those are giant parking garages being built for thousands of people to drive to the game instead of taking public transit.

University of Miami please please consider playing Miami games at this stadium. I promise attendance will raise knowing you don’t have to drive to Miami Gardens… away teams can easily take a flight an stay in hotels in close proximity to the airport and stadium. Definitely a win win for UM!

Miami averages over 58,000 per game. They would never play games in a 25k seat stadium.

Anonymous

58K is almost the capacity of Hard Rock Stadium and you and I both know that such an average is BS. You may reach a number like that during marquee games (fsu), but across the entire season attendance is more like 25-30% of total capacity.

Anonymous

Hard rocks capacity is 65k. Your saying the hurricanes only draw 25% of capacity for a non marquee game. So your saying that average attendance is 16,250 per game? I’ve been a season ticket holder for 7 years, for the past 5 seasons, every home game has been at minimum 80% capacity for non marquee games. And sold out for any divisional or rival game. If you have no idea what your talking about, don’t bother saying anything.

It does remind one of a vagina. From a male perspective, what is more beautiful than a vagina?

Cheap cheesy design, like a bike helmet or a special effects alien ship from a really bad Netflix show. Massive hot paved area with no shade. Epic fail.

Long term planning suggestion: Leave a path for the Metro line to continue through, someday.

Connection to the Miami Intermodal Center (Subway and Bus) ???

Anonymous

Did you really write subway?

Anonymous

Miami doesn’t have Subway. Downtown/Brickell has Metrorail, Metromover, Virgin Trains, Bus, Trolley Buses, Tri-Rail, close to the beach without all the beach headaches of flooding and causeway traffic, much better talent magnet, close to where a lot of its potential employees live or will live.

What? Include a convenient link with an existing, underutilized transit center?
You must be new here.

I don’t see the mall. Oh wait, that was fake news.

Stadium design looks stunning. I’m glad they are talking about more office space instead of another Florida mall.
