The citizens of Miami voted in favor of the David Beckham project which will include the construction of a stadium for its professional football club that will participate in MLS since 2020, accompanied by an office complex, a shopping center and a 750-room hotel located in the Melreese Country Club.
The vote was settled with 60% in favor and 40% against, and was part of the referendum n. 1 with amendment 378 on the ballot.
With the approval of the voters they have skipped the public bidding process and can now negotiate a lease.
It's a step, but there's still a way to go next need the approval of four out of five commissioners to give the final go-ahead to the lease.
Overcome this obstacle, a 99-year lease would have been carried out on behalf of Miami Freedom Park LLC.
David Beckham, along with his partners Jorge Mas, Marcelo Claure and Masayoshi Son, lead Inter Miami CF, a team that will debut in MLS in the 2020 season and I could use Hard Rock Stadium or Marlins Park as a venue while work is under way.
The large sports complex will be developed in a public park of 58 acres, where the city's only public golf course will stop working.
On the ground, a stadium with a capacity of 25,000 spectators will be built located on 37th Avenue and 14th Street in the northeast, very close to the Miami International Airport.
