The countdown to a thriving experience is officially on.
The Golden State Warriors announced its culinary plans for the plaza being built around the new billion-dollar Chase Center in San Francisco. And it's certain to be a total Bay Area experience, boasting some of the area's most famous chefs.
The project is being called by Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts as a transformational arena -- not just for the team, but for the Bay Area too.
Welts gave NBC Bay Area an exclusive tour of the surrounding district.
Thrive City's entertainment space is designed to accommodate pre- and post-game festivities. It will also include a year-round foodie funfest with an ice skating rink, farmers market, art installations and even a giant outdoor video board.
In addition to Warriors games, the Chase Center will host some 200 events each year.
