Milwaukee Bucks Release Renderings of Entertainment Block
The Milwaukee Bucks released a set of renderings of the entertainment block that will be constructed adjacent to the new downtown arena in conjunction with the submission of detailed plans for the development to the city.
According to a press release, this new entertainment block will span N. Fourth St. between W. Highland Ave. and W. Juneau Ave.
It will feature an active space designed for year-round community use featuring a mixture of dining, entertainment and retail.
The block will serve as an important connection between the new arena and existing commercial activity along Old World Third Street.
The entertainment block was designed by Gensler and Milwaukee-based Rinka Chung Architecture, with landscape design services from the Office of James Burnett (OJB). Brookfield-based Hunzinger Construction will manage the construction of the new entertainment block, while New Berlin-based Veit & Company, Inc. is currently overseeing the preparation of the site including demolition of the existing parking structure. The entertainment block is expected to be completed in time for the opening of the new area in the fall of 2018.
