Construction of the Milwaukee Bucks arena in downtown Milwaukee continues to progress, with the outer bowl nearly finished and roof enclosure underway.
The $524 million arena is halfway complete and will open in time for the Bucks’ 2018-’19 season.

Milwaukee Bucks President Peter Feigin said his favorite part is the main entrance off the atrium, which will open onto a public plaza on North Fourth Street.
“This will be home to three large buildings all based on food and entertainment,” Feigin said. “We’ll have concerts, festivals and shows.”
In early August, the Bucks unveiled the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Science Center. The 77,500-square-foot training center includes two full-sized basketball courts, a workout facility and a full-service, chef-staffed kitchen.
