Developers of Miami Freedom Park have submitted a rezoning plan that would use a controversial method to secure development rights to allow them to build a $1 billion commercial and stadium complex to replace Melreese golf course. Team on Monday applied for a special area plan, zoning designation that allows developers to gain greater development capacity in exchange for public benefits on certain land holdings. In this case, special area plan is the only method available to upzone nine or more acres of parkland. Although the plan would not significantly change elements that David Beckham and local partner Jorge Mas outlined almost two years ago, use of special area plan designation highlights just how dramatically development would change the park and neighborhood and why that particular designation often draws loud opposition. Mas wants to redevelop Melreeses 131 acres into Miami Freedom Park, sprawling mall, office park, hotel and soccer stadium complex that would include a 58 - acre public park. The stadium would host home games for Miami Major League Soccer franchise, Inter Miami. Special area plans have come under scrutiny in Miami residential neighborhoods, where critics have taken aim at massive projects size and impact on surrounding residents. Miami Freedom Park, which has no residential component, will likely stoke more fears about traffic and impact on green space than gentrification. Because Melreese is City - owned property, and Inter Miami would be leasing land for 99 years, City and the team are co - applicants on special area plan. City administrators and team officials are still negotiating terms of the lease, which would require approval from four of five Miami commissioners to proceed with a vote that is not at all certain. Upzoning plans do not appear to signal that lease is coming soon. City Manager Art Noriega, who has participated in negotiations since before he was named city's top administrator in February, told the Miami Herald the parties have not finalized their lease proposal. Actually, not even close, Noriega said in a text message. Regardless, team owners must apply for zoning to build anything on property, process that can take up to a year and requires approval from City planners, state officials and ultimately, City Commission. One of Inter Miamis land use attorneys, Iris Escarra, told the Herald the team wanted to begin upzoning process in hopes that final approvals would coincide with approval of the lease. Hopefully items kind of line up so they can approve lease, and shortly after that, approve zoning, she say. The plan calls for the city to allow 20. 9 acres of Melreese property, currently zoned as parkland, to be for commercial development and a 25 000 - seat soccer stadium. Under City law, rezoned Park Space needs to be replaced elsewhere in the City.

David Beckham's partners at Miami Freedom Park have unveiled a new website with renderings of the proposed Park and details of the lease proposal newly submitted to the City.

Glare problems in San Jose

The agency behind Miami International Airport declined to allow David Beckham and his partners to build Soccer Stadium on nearby Melreese Golf Course, citing traffic issues, light pollution and structures that are necessary for comfort near landing flight paths and departures are too high. In January report released this week, authors say the proposed 25 000 - seat Stadium is just beyond the outer security zone to keep large gatherings of people off MIA runways. The fact that it is adjacent to the security zone is worrying, say report from Miami - Dade Aviation division, agency that operates the county - own Airport. The report also cites serious concerns that lighting associated with the proposed football stadium and numerous practice fields, including numerous lead screens / display boards, would create visual distractions for pilots. Analysis shows that the Aviation Department does not recommend placing this Stadium facility on Melreese property. No fireworks at Beckham Stadium January 15 report by Department of Land Use Department of Aviation Department, made public to Miami Herald upon request, marks the first time the county council has refused to build a professional sports stadium and surrounding mall about 4 000 feet from MIA's main terminal. Beckham's Major League Soccer partnership, lead by MasTec chairman Jorge Mas, has not yet signed a contract with Miami to develop Melreese, City's only Golf Course. City Voters in 2018 authorized Miami Commissioners to negotiate deal. Talks drag on long enough, however, for Beckham's Inter Miami CF team to play their first home game in August at the Soccer Training complex Fort Lauderdale franchise developed under contract with that city. Iris Escarra, Greenberg Traurig partner and Land Use lawyer with Beckham Group, said the company had already agreed to a number of requests from the airport, including a slightly lower roof height for the Stadium. The final Stadium Plan will also include detailed lighting controls to meet aviation requirements and address MIA's concerns, she say. They have lighting standards and we have to adhere to them, she say. They were concerned about events with balloons and fireworks. We can't have any of these fireworks, none of these. Glare problems in San Jose in April, Escarra wrote to the Aviation division setting concessions for Stadium Group, including lower building heights and lighting plan to help meet Aviation regulations. Aviation responded with a letter confirming the statement and saying it would make a final assessment once Stadium Group released detailed plans. Months earlier, senior Aviation Planning official pointed out issues facing San Jose, California Airport from Levi Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, about four miles away. I remain concerned that the proposed Soccer Stadium will have similar or worse effects and distractions to operations at MIA, wrote Jose Ramos, Director of Aviation Planning, to the agency's Director, Lester, on December 10 Sola. All of their promotional renders do shy away from highlighting their large glowing lead panels and glowing lights emanating from the Stadium, he write.
