David Beckham’s top choice for a Major League Soccer stadium is the southwest section of the Biscayne Bay seaport PortMiami.

His group of investors, known as Beckham Brand Limited, has asked Miami-Dade County officials if they would consider a 25,000-seat stadium, a mega-yacht marina and possible waterfront promenade for the 25-acre spot, the Miami Herald reported. One of the investors is billionaire Marcelo Claure, who runs global wireless distributor Brightstar.

The two ways to reach the island are via the new Port Tunnel – opening next year – and by car from Port Boulevard along Northeast 6th Street.

Deputy Mayor Chip Iglesias said small businesses leasing office space on the site would likely be displaced if a project were to proceed.

Iglesias and Mayor Carlos Gimenez have been in talks with New York-based development firm HR&A Advisors, which was tapped by Beckham’s group to find a suitable Miami location. [Miami Herald]Mark Maurer
