Big night for the Milwaukee Bucks (NBA) and Wisconsin basketball fans, as the team marks the beginning of the 2018-2019 NBA season with a Fiserv Forum opening.
With a unique exterior designed to evoke a maritime feel and an interior with plenty of discrete seating areas and some very unique spaces, Fiserv Forum is a notable addition to the NBA arena lineup. We toured the new arena with Populous Senior Architect / Senior Principal Brad Clark during the initial Open House. You can read about that visit here.
While the arena is finished, the surrounding development is not, so there’s plenty of construction happening within the arena area and, if the Bucks have their way, for years to come: the team ownership is pushing development in the general arena area. Still, with a new ramp attached to the arena and plenty of lots within the area (remember, the new arena is replacing the next-door BMO Bradley Harris Center), fans should have few issues finding a nearby place to park.
Here’s a pretty cool look at the new arena’s construction courtesy of EarthCam:
Here’s a review of our coverage of the arena:
