New Bucks arena on schedule to be completed by August, officials show off progress
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The new Bucks Arena is now about 95% complete.
Friday, Bucks President Peter Feigin says some of the projects left are finishing fixtures and some electrical and plumbing work.
The arena is still on schedule to be up and running in August.
CBS 58 got a first look inside the locker rooms.
The Bucks' 30,000 square foot campus includes a locker room, lounge, and a hydrotherapy pool. For the fans in the Mezzanine Club Level, there’s a 32-foot place fireplace. Throughout the arena, there are more than 800 TVs.
So far, more than 3,700 people have worked on constructing this new arena that will have 17,500 seats. Feigin wants fans to have an unforgettable experience.
“I want them to feel cozy,” he said. “I want them to feel taken care of. I want them to feel that they're in a special place with an unbelievable environment to listen, to feel, to hear a game.”
Feigin says naming rights have been established, but have not been made public yet. The first musical act in the new arena is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
