MIAMI (AP) - Even though it is more expensive than other locations in the Miami area, David Beckham and his investment group say they are still considering a prime spot at PortMiami.

Experts say building at the port location would cost an extra $50 million because the stadium would have to be elevated from its ground-level flood zone.

Beckham Advisor John Alschuler tells the Miami Herald that the location is desirable because of its closeness to the water and view of the downtown skyline.

The group is also considering several other sites including one next to the Miami Marlins ballpark.

The investors are in discussions with the city to finalize a location for the planned $250 million, 25,000 seat stadium.
