NOW: Proposed Deer District music venues move one step closer to development

NEXT:

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- New music venues in the Deer District are one step closer to development after passing through the City Plan Commission Monday night, Sept. 26.

Newly released renderings show us what the building would look like on the inside and out. Two different venues with capacities ranging between 800 and 4,000 people would sit where the Bradley Center used to be on the corner of Vel R. Phillips and Highland Avenue. 

Dozens of people shared their thoughts, both positive and negative, with the commission.

"This proposal is fatally flawed," said Craig Peterson, representative with Save Milwaukee's Music Scene. "I do not believe it can be cured and it should be sent back to the drawing board."

"We want aesthetic value. We want to be seamless within the environment of the district," said Milwaukee Bucks President Peter Feigin. "We care about the look and feel of this district, which you can tell."

The proposal will move on to the Zoning Committee next, before ending up at the Common Council if approved.
