Bucks, Johnson Controls build neighborhood sports complex

MILWAUKEE/May 24, 2017 (AP) (StlRealEstate.News) — The Milwaukee Bucks and Johnson Controls are partnering to build a multi-sport complex in a northwest Milwaukee neighborhood.

The two are donating the $150,000 complex to Milwaukee Public Schools, the Silver Spring Neighborhood Center and the Housing Authority of Milwaukee.

It will be built on the campus of Browning Elementary School and the neighborhood center.

The complex includes six basketball courts, a soccer field and additional recreation space, all contained within a 200-meter track. The courts can also be used for other sports, such as volleyball or tennis.

The Westlawn neighborhood includes a large public housing development, which is currently being rebuilt.
