Andrew Weiland, Maredithe Meyer and Arthur Thomas of BizTimes Media get together to discuss the news of the week, including the announcement that FPC Live will build a $50 million indoor concert venue on the former site of the Bradley Center after dropping plans for a similar project near the Summerfest grounds. The group discusses the details of the plan and how they will complicate or compete with plans for a sports and entertainment district called Iron District MKE just a few blocks south. Iron District was announced just a week ago and includes plans for a soccer stadium, indoor concert venue, hotel, multi-family residential and much more. Can Milwaukee support two brand new music venues?
