Haiti - Sports : World class stadium in Cité Soleil !
This week, at architect Carlos Zapata's studio in Manhattan, New York, "Project Phoenix" a non-profit organization established as a commitment made by Morad Fareed of Delos and Boby Duval of L'Athletique D'Haiti (LADH) at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative, publicly revealed plans for Phoenix Stadium, a 12,000 seat professional football stadium in Cite Soleil. The event was attended by football star Mia Hamm, model and activist Petra Nemcova, and philanthropist and entrepreneur Rohan Marley.

Phoenix Stadium is a world-class football facility and self-sustaining community for the people of Cite Soleil. With an estimated cost of $5 million, the stadium will also house LADH - a youth development program that provides underprivileged participants with a safe, clean, supportive environment where they can learn the discipline of sports and the structure of teamwork--and offer a football academy, an elementary and middle school and dormitories. Phoenix Stadium will be landscaped with edible gardens, a small lake containing tilapia and a composting and recycling plant.

Sports apparel brand 4POINT4 has already signed on as a sponsor to the project. "Project Phoenix is the next generation of philanthropy," says Morad Fareed, co-founder/managing partner of Delos, the Wellness Real Estate(TM) Company.

For this projetc, Moard Fareed has assembled a world-class group of experts to work pro bono to bring this dream project to reality, including :

- World-renowned architect Carlos Zapata - whose projects include Soldier Field Stadium in Chicago and the Bitexco Financial Tower in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
- Engineer William Faschan of LERA
- Stadium designer Gordon E. Wood
- Landscape architect Charles Anderson of Charles Anderson Atelier

Construction work, will begin in 2013.
