The Milwaukee Bucks fooled around on April Fools that they would reveal a new logo and jersey, but they lied. This new arena is for real.
The Official Press Release:
These conceptual images are an important step in the process as Bucks ownership continues to present their preferred site and vision to public officials, whose partnership is necessary for the proposed development.
The images depict early conceptual drawings of a new multi-purpose venue and entertainment district that anchor an ambitious new development vision activated by sports, entertainment, residential and office uses. The proposed site, which primarily sits between Fourth Street and Sixth Street from State Street to McKinley Avenue, will seamlessly link with active development on all sides, including Old World Third Street, Schlitz Park, The Brewery, the Milwaukee riverfront, Water Street and the Wisconsin Center.
The vision is for an arena designed for maximum flexibility and year-round use. A dynamic entertainment district will serve as a destination that draws the people of the region together for unforgettable experiences and a place people will love to gather for generations to come.
“We’re not just trying to build a new home for the Milwaukee Bucks, but create a 365-day attraction for Wisconsin residents that will help revitalize downtown Milwaukee,” said Bucks president Peter Feigin. “We’re excited to share this glimpse of our vision for the future as we continue to work with our local and state partners to arrive at a viable plan. This collective effort will create a ripple effect of growth, development and transformation for the entire community and region.”
Here are some pictures of the new concept:
The Milwaukee Bucks and their organization want to stay in Milwaukee. There has been too many rumors that the Bucks might be sold and move to Seattle. With these plans, they want to eliminate those rumors.
