Billionaire developers are using our love for soccer to distort their real purpose – a massive real estate takeover of our public green space. Miami should have major league soccer, but not at the expense of paving over precious green space.
SAY NO TO DESTROYING PUBLIC GREEN SPACE AND MIAMI’S NEIGHBORHOODS
Can you imagine turning over Antonio Maceo, Morningside, Shenandoah, Jose Marti and Henry Reeves Parks for private development? Or how about building condos, retail and office buildings on Kennedy, Peacock, Roberto Clemente, Athalie Range, Virrick, Pace and Little Haiti parks?
“… All told, the complex is expected to generate about $425 million every year in revenue, signaling what could be a lucrative financial deal for owners who want to lease public land…”

THE RICH GET RICHER
Project avoids city’s own public, competitive process thru a no-bid, rushed, back-room deal for billionaires.
ANOTHER SUBSIDIZED STADIUM DEAL
Billionaire businessman demands 73 acres of public green space to build massive “city within a city” because without public green space their stadium will not profitable.
DESTRUCTION OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS
How would you feel if city approved a mammoth “city within a city” that will generate more than 10,000 car trips daily plus 25,000 people during stadium events… in your single family, residential neighborhood?
ENVIRONMENTAL, ECO-SYSTEM DISASTER
Green space absorbs storm water run-off and has a cooling effect. Paving green space adds to heat island effects, including higher air pollution levels which can affect human health.
LACK OF TRANSPARENCY
No traffic, economic, feasibility and environmental studies or ownership disclosures have been shared with the public.
