This Is The Site That Beckham Is Now Rumored To Be Eyeing For A Stadium

A vacant lot near a Metrorail station is now rumored to be the site that David Beckham is near a deal to build a soccer stadium on.

The privately owned property is located at 650 NW 8th Street. It is small, at just 4.2 acres, but Beckham’s previously rejected proposal for a stadium at Museum Park was on an identically sized footprint. Another vacant property is also listed for sale across the street.

The surrounding area includes low-income housing projects, the historic Spring Garden neighborhood with million dollar homes, and marine industry.

Culmer Metrorail station is less than a quarter mile away. Two upcoming megaprojects, Miami Worldcenter and All Aboard Florida’s MiamiCentral, are just a 15-minute walk away.

Windsor Capital Corporation, led by Roland DiGasbarro, acquired the site in a distressed note sale from Lehman Brothers. It last sold for $12.5 million in 2009.

Earlier this year, Windsor applied to build a 633-unit residential project on the site that the developer said would help promote Metrorail ridership.
