3 firms chosen to design new Milwaukee Bucks stadium

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The owners of the Milwaukee Bucks have selected three architectural firms to design the basketball team's new downtown arena.

Missouri-based Populous will serve as the lead agency on the design team. The company has worldwide experience designing arenas, stadiums, ballparks and convention centers. Populous has designed 15 NBA or NHL arenas, and is currently working on new projects in Quebec City and Las Vegas.

Two local firms, HNTB and Eppstein Uhen, also will help design the Milwaukee arena. The companies employ nearly 300 Wisconsin residents and have worked on thousands of projects throughout the state.

The Bucks are seeking support from state, county and city governments. Gov. Scott Walker has proposed a state budget calling for $220 million in state bonds to help pay for the new arena.
