Some call it "the wrap." It's the first floor of Hitcents Park Plaza which is currently under construction, but officials at Hitcents say this space will change the way you think about downtown by next March.
"Our intention always was to create a destination downtown," said Hitcents CEO Clinton Mills.
Instead of bringing in chain restaurants, they decided to create their own.
"We're starting out with three fast casual concepts. One being Italian, one being Asian, and one being Mexican. So you just go up, order your food, and they'll come and bring it to you. Then we're going to do a sports bar, which will hopefully compliment the hot rods games, and hopefully be ready to open right before the start of that season," said Mills.
Mills says he, his brother and father decided to create the MR Group, and own the restaurants to give their employees and the people of Bowling Green an experience and quality of dining like that offered in larger cities.
"We hear that all the time... we just want the bigger city life, so as we're growing the urban area here in Bowling Green, and growing the downtown area, we think this could help bringing good people in and also help keep the people we have that are really good here," said Mills.
One unique feature the restaurant area offers is a common takeout area.
"The takeout area is going to serve all the restaurants, which is nice, so if you want Asian and your husband wants Italian, then you can both order at the same time and one delivery guy bring you both foods," said Mills.
Mills says you can also have food from any of the seven restaurants catered in a banquet hall on the second floor. It seats up to 300, and overlooks the ballpark and downtown.
Mills says he anticipates the seven restaurants in the building will create about 500 jobs, and hopes to begin opening some of those restaurants by March 1.
