The fight over the potential conversion of Melreese Country Club a municipal golf course near the Miami International Airport Metrorail/TriRail station into Miami Freedom Park including an office park, retail and soccer stadium has heated up. At issue is the little remaining green space in a city that has become a world class international hub for commerce, media and culture.

I’ve broken down the fight and what is at stake in terms of park and green space, commercial and development potential for the park and MLS as well as the political history of the Mas family and The Miami Herald in this piece for our friends at The Yanks are Coming.
