To create a new way for Milwaukee to live, to work, and to play. More than just an arena, the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center is the central hub for recreation in Milwaukee, connecting communities, neighborhoods and generations… for generations to come.
The Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center will be much more than just the new home for the Milwaukee Bucks basketball. Designed to reflect the heritage, history and personality of Milwaukee while actively projecting progress, accessibility and a renewed sense of community, the state of the art, 714,000 square foot arena will be the hub of entertainment in Wisconsin and the engine that drives growth in downtown Milwaukee.
Over the coming years, the 30-acre district surrounding the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center will become the largest development project ever undertaken in downtown Milwaukee. Combining entertainment, residential and commercial spaces, the new district will transform Milwaukee and serve as a catalyst for driving development throughout the region.
Featuring an active plaza space designed for year-round community use outside, and sweeping views both into the bowl and out to the city throughout the interior, the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center is being built to redefine world class fan experience and highlight the communal nature of attending live entertainment.
