Downtown's Park East strip could draw a lot more bucks if it lands the Milwaukee Bucks, says developer Gary Grunau.
The largely vacant former freeway stub could use a major project to help spark its long-delayed development, Grunau says. And an arena to replace the aging BMO Harris Bradley Center - home to the Milwaukee Bucks, Marquette University Golden Eagles and Milwaukee Admirals - would use a lot of space.
"They need a big site," Grunau said at last week's meeting of the new Park East Advisory Group. "If you don't put it there, where are you going to put it?"
Others on the group, which was formed by County Executive Chris Abele, seemed open to the idea. The Bradley Center board chairman says the Park East would be an outstanding location for a new sports and entertainment arena, which would cost hundreds of millions of dollars to build and likely attract other development.
