Rock Hill Knowledge Park Plans Revealed

Posted: Updated:

The city of Rock Hill is getting a major face life in a project called Knowledge Park.

“You’ve got this whole live-work environment and for us as a community that is tremendously important,” said Rock Hill Mayor Doug Echols.

Today, the developers of Knowledge Park, Sora Phelps, presented the draft to Rock Hill City Council.

The draft, which has been in the works since September, focuses on redeveloping the former Bleachery property with 19 buildings.

“Each building has its own funding capital source so each building will have its own parcel like ownership,” said Partner and Director of Sora Development Tim Elliot.

The $180 million project will include student housing, active adult housing, apartments, retail office, civic space and parking.

If approved, the project would be done in 8 phases over the course of 9 years.

The plan would also add over $1,000 new jobs in the Bleachery area, along with 800 new residents and $2.8 million in real estate tax.

“We’ve got a plan of action of how we are going to move forward and it’s just really, really exciting,” said Echols.

The next step is for City Council to take action on a negotiated contract for each particular phase.
