Developers are planning a $220 million racetrack and private club at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport.

Neil Gehani and Jay Pollak expect to open the Concours Club by May 2019, complete with more than 2 miles of racetrack and a slew of high-end amenities. They’re offering 40 founding members at $350,000 each with no annual dues. Those members would then be able to invite others to buy up to 150 “legacy memberships” costing $125,000, plus annual dues, according to Bloomberg.

The complex will feature lawns, lounges, locker rooms, driving simulators, car storage, service and maintenance, pit lanes, a spa, wine storage, a restaurant and lounge, and more. Gehani told Bloomberg he spent a year-and-a-half looking for a site. He plans to invest $16 million on just the clubhouse.

Earlier this year, the Miami-Dade County Commission approved developer Carlos de Narváez’s plans for a $100 million luxury auto club project called Drivers Club Miami, just west of Miami Gardens. That development, built in phases, is set to rise on a 160-acre site at 20000 Northwest 47th Avenue. [Bloomberg] – Katherine Kallergis
