Design Unveiled for New Sports and Entertainment District in Downtown Milwaukee

May 23, 2022

Kahler Slater, Kacmarcik Enterprises, and Bear Real Estate Group are partnered to design a transformational new sports and entertainment district at 8th and Michigan in downtown Milwaukee. The development will feature an 8,000-seat stadium, 3,500-person indoor concert venue, 140-key luxury hotel, and 99-unit multi-family development on 11-acres.

Scheduled to break ground in 2022, the mixed-use site will also feature street-level restaurant and retail space. It will involve a collaborative team of important voices in Milwaukee, including Marquette University, the City of Milwaukee, and the Pabst Theater Group who will be operating the concert venue.

"As lead designer, we are excited to partner with visionary clients like Bear and Kacmarcik as they create a new hub for sports and entertainment in Milwaukee." - Joseph Sinnett, AIA, Principal-in-Charge
