A little over two weeks ago, reported that the owners of the Milwaukee Bucks were negotiating to purchase the Journal Sentinel buildings, a block commonly known as Journal Square, with the intention of using the space as the site for a new multi-purpose arena.

While news is coming – Bucks co-owners Wes Edens and Marc Lasry have both said a site will be named by the end of the year – we’re still waiting for official word.

So, we had our good friends at ScopeBridge LLC help us visualize what an arena could look like in the Journal Square area – and show that a multi-use stadium could indeed fit within that area just off the Milwaukee River and Pere Marquette Park.

One feature of the Journal Square block that may be appealing to Bucks management is the idea of setting the court and some seats below street level.

Here are some views of what an arena could look like from the inside:

Such a design could allow for natural light to be part of the interior of the arena:

And here is a cross section the lower bowl:
