The Bucks want to build a new arena. Yay! The Bucks also want to invest in the surrounding area to provide a better gameday and neighborhood experience. Also, yay!
Why is this so great for Bucks fans? Because it continues to showcase just how much the Bucks are committed to building a premier NBA franchise, and squashing any potential rumors about relocation.
Here's the rundown of the arena proposal:
- Arena size: 700,000-square-feet
- Arena capacity: 17,000 seats
- Public plaza size: 60,000-square-feet
- Estimated cost: $1 billion, with half going to the arena itself and the other $500 million to development of the surrounding Park East corridor.
Unrelated, but not really... this is the rumored new logo the Bucks will be adopting for next season.
