MADISON – Findorff proudly announces it has been selected to construct the new arena parking structure for the Milwaukee Bucks. This major undertaking is part of a public-private partnership to create a new sports and entertainment district in downtown Milwaukee. “With our office only blocks away from the Bucks development, we were already excited about what the new sports and entertainment district would bring not only to the city of Milwaukee, but also to the surrounding neighborhoods,” said Eric Wynn, Findorff’s General Manager Southeast Wisconsin and Director of Project Management for the Company’s Milwaukee office.
Findorff is part of a local team, which also includes GRAEF and American Design Inc. Together with the city and its iconic sports team, the local community will continue to grow and experience significant benefits. As described by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, “The project is designed in a way that benefits the surrounding neighborhood by adding parking and activity, so much more than simply a development to support the new arena.” Additionally, the Bucks is committed to achieving both city and county workforce requirements of 40% RPP and 25% SBE on the project.
The city-owned parking deck, which will be located on the former Park East land between W. Juneau Ave. and W. McKinley Ave from N. Fifth Street to N. Sixth Street, will be a six-story structure that can accommodate approximately 1,250 vehicles. The structure will also include mixed-use opportunities on the first level, seamlessly integrating the structure into the broader design and aesthetics of the surrounding arena development.
