Riverwalk Project: A New Era of Development

Along the banks of the scenic Catawba River, a new era of commerce is in the works.  A joint effort between the City of Rock Hill, South Carolina, and a development partner, Greens of Rock Hill, has resulted in the engagement of a unique brownfields redevelopment opportunity.  This partnership grew from a vision of a group of entrepreneurs who saw vast potential beyond the estimated $45 million in environmental obstacles associated with this more than 1,000 acre brownfield site that once housed the largest cellulose acetate manufacturing operation in the United States. This public/private partnership created the design of the Riverwalk mixed-use development with a truly innovative funding model that largely alleviated risks to the City of Rock Hill and its taxpayers.
