Milwaukee Bucks see Foxconn as a prospect for business partner, arena name sponsor

If you've driven by it recently, you know that the new Milwaukee Bucks arena has already started to look like an arena from the outside.

Even inside the building it's looking more like a sports venue at every moment.

Project managers say their main goal at the moment is the interior rough in - all the thing that can be done while the building isn't completed closed off to the elements.

On Friday, 677 electricians, pipe-fitters, and other workers prepared for that next stage when the roof is completed in the Fall.

But questions remain about who will actually sponsor the name of the arena.

One name has recently stuck out.

"Foxconn's been on the site. Foxconn's been at our offices. We've been in different restaurants together. We've talked to Foxconn like we'd do any prospect in a partnership like over the past few weeks," Peter Feigin, Bucks President, said during a recent tour of construction.

Within the next two weeks, the arena will not completely be a green color anymore. The steel paneling with a zinc patina will start going up.
