Rock Hill Mill College Town

Rock Hill Mill College Town

“back to the future”

Sitting adjacent to Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, Rock Hill Mill was a major employer in the area until it closed in 2000. The Mill was purchased by the city and a redevelopment plan was devised to include 1.1 million square feet of student housing, office space, fitness/tournament facilities, a hotel, senior housing, retail, and parking.  With such a mill-centric culture and the benefit of Historic Tax Credits, the theme of “back to the future” was appropriate as the theme of the project blending historic structures with high tech jobs, living, entertainment, and learning.
