Turner Hall
1040 N. 4th Street Milwaukee WI, 53202

The Milwaukee Bucks’ new Fiserv Forum and entertainment district are rapidly reshaping the landscape in downtown Milwaukee. Still standing is the BMO Harris Bradley Center, formerly home to the Bucks, Marquette Golden Eagles and Milwaukee Admirals as well as a site for large concerts and other entertainment. The future of the BMO Harris site will be the subject of this Behind the Headlines discussion, addressing questions such as potential best uses for this significant property once the old arena is demolished and how that will mesh with surrounding new development downtown and in adjacent neighborhoods.
