Park Row Construction Project Well-Underway

By  | 

The new Park Row building project on Bowling Green's historic Downtown Square is well underway.

The project is slated to house two to three businesses (most likely restaurants appealing to the lunchtime crowd) on the first floor, and 40 housing units for retired couples or families on the top three floors.

The complex has been in the works for more than two years as historic preservation groups and planning agencies OK’d the plans. Developers told city officials at the groundbreaking ceremony that they'd like to have the project completed by late fall.

The building's placement has already had one trickle-down effect: the Military Affairs Board decided Monday to move the planned memorial military statues from in front of the old Warren County courthouse to the side courtyard, to increase their visibility once the Park Row project is complete.
