The 26 acre area between downtown Rock Hill and Winthrop University is called the Bleachery Site. This area has been unused since 1998 and in 2014 a fire destroyed the vacant area. Currently, Sora-Phelps is the master developer of this project which in the future will be 1.6 million square feet of retail, restaurant, office, residential and parking space. Recently Sora-Phelps has requested this 26 acre area to be rezoned Master Plan-Commercial. This zoning would allow flexibility in redeveloping the site to meet market conditions.
This entire process is expected to take 7 years and 7 phases (2016-2022).
