Take a look at the gorgeous $524 million arena the Milwaukee Bucks are building in the city's downtown area
The Milwaukee Bucks were told by the NBA in 2013 that their current home, the BMO Harris Bradley Center, was no longer fit for the league.
After years of negotiating, they sealed a deal to build a new home for 2018, a still unnamed arena in the heart of downtown Milwaukee.
The arena comes with a complex of commercial and residential building that will cost $524 million, with $250 million coming from taxpayers, that the team and city thinks will provide a boost to the economy.
Despite the controversial background of the under-construction arena (set to be open in Fall 2018), the renderings show a gorgeous, glass building with rustic features, big, open concourses, and views of the action from all angles.
