BRADENTON -- A Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant an Atlanta construction company started building late last year will add some nightlife to a section of former parking lot at Centre Pointe Commons this year.
This week, Venture Construction Co. was at work in and around the framed-up 5,885-square-foot building that will become Manatee County's second "B-Dubs."
The restaurant chain operates a location on University Parkway near The Mall at University Town Center.
At the new location, 4120 14th St. W., Buffalo Wild Wings is building on a section of parking lot that was once a bank site.

It will join 17 other tenants in the 119,000-square-foot Centre Pointe Commons. Restaurants already in the shopping center are Chipotle, KFC, Panera Bread, Jersey Mike's and Yogurt Mountain.
Behind the restaurant, facing the shopping center's parking lot, the restaurant will feature a 795-square foot covered patio, according to a site plan on file with Manatee County.
The location's owner, Diversified Restaurant Holdings of Southfield, Mich., is a franchisee that operates Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants in five states.
Company officials did not immediately respond a request to comment on the exact opening date of the Centre Pointe Commons store.
