7 cool drone photos of the Bucks' new arena construction

The Milwaukee Bucks' new arena is quickly taking shape. Construction on the $524 million project continues full steam ahead, the work is reportedly almost halfway finished and the venue is still expected to open in the fall of 2018, before the beginning of the NBA season.

The structure looms over the west side of Downtown, a striking visual attraction on the city's landscape, with its hulking, curved steel skeleton holding a nearly installed seating bowl and much of the roof already in place. This fall, the building is expected to be fully enclosed, and the interior work can be done. The team's new training center, next door to the arena, is all but complete.

But since a picture is worth a thousand words, we'd rather show you the progress than just tell you how it's going. Here are seven of the most recent photos of the new Bucks arena, courtesy of the good people at MKE Drones:
