“We’re actively looking at five or so sites,” MLS Miami partner Jorge Mas told the Miami Herald. “There are a handful of sites that are interesting.”
Mas declined to confirm individual sites, but the paper’s sources floated a few new locations that might be in the hunt. Besides Overtown and the golf course (both of which face opposition in the form of neighbor apprehension and a petition to save Melreese), possible sites under consideration include land at Hialeah Park and Casino, a Pepsi distribution center in Doral, and land near Jackson Memorial Hospital. The site is meant to accommodate more than just a stadium: Mas wants to include youth soccer fields and a “tech hub” as well.
