More than 1,000 new homes and townhomes are proposed in York and Lancaster counties.

Some already have their decisions, while many more await decisions from planning commissions or councils. The York County planning commission will meet May 9. Decisions must be made on a final land sale in Baxter, a large York property with hundreds of proposed homes, and an extension of time for a large Lake Wylie development.

Projects include:

▪ Owner Clear Springs Baxter and developer Fielding Homes applied for a new townhome subdivision at Sixth Baxter Crossing and Hugh Street, near North Sutton Road. The property is almost 3 acres. The plan involves 20 townhomes.

The Borough at Sixth Baxter is, according to county information sent to the planning commission, the last lot in Baxter Village to be sold by Clear Springs Baxter. The property is near both residential and commercial space, including an urgent care site.

▪ The Bull Creek project in York is back up for county review. County planning staff recommends against the plan for a 409-lot manufactured home community at 975 McAfee Court. County planning staff doesn’t believe that scale of development is consistent with residential and agricultural uses in that area now, according to informtion sent to the planning commission. The 155-acre property has 62 mobile homes on it now.

▪ Owners of 14 acres on Saluda Street in Rock Hill applied to rezone the property to allow a new 11-home subdivision. There are five manufactured homes there, plus wooded and grassy areas. A sketch plan shows all 11 lots off a single entrance from Saluda, which leads to a cul-de-sac.

The property is east of Ogden Farms and south of Cedarbrook, between Porter Black Road and Autumnwood Drive.

▪ Almost 200 more homes are still planned, but could come later than was laid out in a prior county approval. Fielding Homes got county approval to build four new phases of Paddlers Cove in Lake Wylie. The 135-acre new portion of the existing subdivision is set for 195 homes.

County approvals typically come with two-year vested rights. Developers have to request annual extensions if they don’t start until after the vested rights period ends. Developers get up to five such extensions. The owner asks the county now for an extension to run through March 2023.

The Lancaster County planning commission met Thursday night. The commission recommended a zoning change for almost 44 acres that would allow a new home subdivision. Lancaster County Council will make the final decision.

The property on the southeast corner of Fork Hill Road and Little Dude Avenue is owned by R&C Investments. Earl Coulston applied for the zoning change. The site is just north of Kershaw, about a mile west of Haile Gold Mine.

Dale Robertson is a partner with R&C Investments. Robertson has done other residential projects in that area, with the mine in mind.

“There’s just a lot of people that are driving an hour and fifteen minutes, some of them two hours, to work,” Robertson told the planning commission Thursday. “There’s hardly no houses down there for people to buy.”

A plan with an exact number of new homes hasn’t been submitted, but the new zoning would allow up to 2.5 homes per acre. Or, roughly 110 homes for a property that size.

An even larger project was on the planning commission agenda Thursday, but was deferred until next month. Rezoning and a development agreement are proposed for Arbor Walk. That new home subdivision could have 233 homes on almost 113 acres on Vance Baker Road.

The planning commission in Rock Hill met Tuesday, where one of several property proposals was the Arbors at Seven Oaks project. Owner Rock Hill Multifamily Investments applied for preliminary plat approval on Springsteen Road and Evelyn Street. There are three parcels, two in front of the Seven Oaks subdivivision and the other with a pond on Evelyn.

Plans show 148 townhomes proposed on 21 acres. The site was approved for 220 apartments in 2014. Plans have changed and been pushed back several times due to utility and other negotiations.

Several road upgrades are part of the plan. Access to the site southwest of Seven Oaks Boulevard will come from a new driveway connection to Springsteen. The area northeast of Seven Oaks Boulevard will have a new drive onto Springsteen and and another onto Evelyn, across from Wildwood Drive. A left turn lane on Springsteen at Evelyn will be added, and the intersection will be realigned. Springsteen also will be widened to create a center turn lane.

Fort Mill’s championship baseball program will redevelop Rock Hill property

A baseball program built on a historic run of success in Fort Mill plans to open a new facility in Rock Hill.

Mill Town Industrial Properties submitted plans April 7 to rezone property near District 3 Stadium in Rock Hill for a new baseball training facility. The company is connected to Mill Town Baseball Academy, which formed from the same coaches and many of the same players who won a state championship and then the Dixie Youth Baseball World Series last summer representing Fort Mill.

The Rock Hill plan would transform a former lumberyard just south of the high school football stadium, between Chester Street and Lancaster Avenue.

There are five buildings on the property, which is more than 3 acres. Three buildings would be removed. One would be used for indoor baseball training. The other is shown on a submitted sketch plan as a possible restaurant.

The removed buildings would make way for parking to serve the project. A later phase would be an outdoor baseball field for training.

Chris Mattox is listed as the applicant. Ryan Smith addressed the Rock Hill city planning commission to outline plans. Both were coaches with the Fort Mill squad last summer that since has grown to include travel teams as Mill Town Baseball.

“Chris and I grew up playing baseball around the Fort Mill, Charlotte area,” Smith told the commission earlier this week. “Went on to play college ball, each of us. Both of us have been fairly successful in our careers and our lives, and we attribute a lot of that to being raised on the ballfields. Being taught life skills through baseball.”

The success of last summer’s team, formed of all stars from the town parks and recreation program, continued even beyond the World Series run.

“From there we said, ‘We can’t stop here,’” Smith said.

The main building that will be used for training is 11,000 square feet and has 20-plus-foot ceilings. It would be perfect for baseball training, Smith said, and softball at some point, too. Smith said he’d like Fort Mill, Rock Hill and surrounding areas to become known as a baseball hotbed.

“It just makes perfect sense for us to further that mission,” he said.

The planning commission recommended the rezoning, but the final decision comes from Rock Hill City Council. Rock Hill is a city known for youth sports, from its investment in sites like Cherry Park and Manchester Meadows to its “Football City USA” moniker and familiar “Competition Lives Here” motto.

The training site also would be an infill project to grow downtown development, other common city goals.

“What you guys are doing, working with youth, that’s right up our alley here,” said planning commission chair Randy Graham.

S.C. governor on Panthers’ Rock Hill facility: ‘Let’s get moving’

Construction on the Carolina Panthers’ state-of-the-art $800 million headquarters and practice facility in Rock Hill is still on pause as city and county leaders try to work out a new deal with the team.

The project has been delayed for over a month after Tepper Sports says the city of Rock Hill didn't make its initial payment on time.

ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV/FOX Carolina) - South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said the state is ready to go to move the Carolina Panthers headquarters and practice facility to Rock Hill.

The project has been delayed for over a month after Tepper Sports says the city of Rock Hill didn’t make its initial payment on time.

A few weeks ago, the city and York County agreed on a financial plan to restart construction but there’s been no response from the Panthers or owner David Tepper.

Speaking to FOX Carolina during an event Tuesday in Greenville, McMaster says the state is ready for the development to move forward. However, despite several conversations, the Panthers and local leaders are “at an impasse.”

“I had gotten a call from Mr. Tepper about it and he explained why. They were trying to work out a number of important points and he explained it as a pause,” McMaster said. “I look forward for that pause to be over with and we get ongoing. The state has done its part and we want to encourage everyone to resolve whatever differences there are and let’s get moving. We want the Panthers to be right there.”

WBTV has again reached out to the Panthers but they keep saying they do not have any comment.

Construction on the Carolina Panthers’ state-of-the-art $800 million headquarters and practice facility in Rock Hill is still on pause as city and county leaders try to work out a new deal with the team.

It’s been weeks since the York County Council voted on a new finance plan hoping to once again get the project rolling.

Since then, Tepper and the Panthers have remained silent on the project.

The original deal called for the City of Rock Hill to pay $20 million and essentially borrow $225 million in bonds which were never issued. The facility was supposed to be finished in 2023, but it’s not clear whether that’s still the timeline.

This deal only includes the practice facility and team headquarters. It doesn’t include any other hotels, restaurants or offices.

The next step is that David Tepper needs to sign off on the deal.

In Oct 2020, the Carolina Panthers revealed renderings of their new headquarters and practice facility coming to Rock Hill.

It was a joint reveal from the Panthers, York County, and the City of Rock Hill. The mixed-use site was designed to host Tepper Sports & Entertainment and become a destination for people all over the region.

Congressman Ralph Norman on stalled Panthers facility: ‘Taxpayers deserve better’

ROCK HILL. S.C. — There are growing concerns that the new Carolina Panthers training facility project may be dead.

The multimillion-dollar construction project has been at a standstill for more than a month after Tepper Sports and Entertainment paused construction.

Congressman Ralph Norman told Channel 9′s Tina Terry that the taxpayers deserve to know what is going on with the project.

[ PREVIOUS COVERAGE: Deal or no deal? Local leaders want to hear from Panthers on paused Rock Hill HQ project ]

“I think he owes it to the taxpayers to say these are our differences, this is what we’re working on. He doesn’t have to go into the details,” Norman said about Panthers owner David Tepper.

Governor Henry McMaster said he’s spoken Tepper and was optimistic about the future of the project.

“We can get going,” McMaster said. “We want the Panthers to be right here.”

Tepper Sports and Entertainment announced it would pause construction on its Rock Hill training facility on March 7, saying the city of Rock Hill failed to get the finances to pay for public infrastructure.

Since then, Channel 9 has noticed little to no activity on site.

“The longer it goes, people will just assume that it’s dead. If it just sits idle, contracts have to be honored. People in a project this big have to (have) clawback clauses where you have a time to finish it or you pay money,” he said.

County council member Brandon Guffey told Terry that he has major concerns about all of the companies contracted to do work on the facility.

He said he and other York County leaders worked with the Panthers last month to try and save the project.

“We did our part to show good faith hoping to save those jobs, so that all those equipment leases and other contracts wouldn’t be broken, affording the Panthers organization the opportunity to truly show that we are two states, one team,” Guffey said.

In June of 2019, Tepper promised to bring the Panthers’ footprint into Rock Hill, but so far he has made no comments about the future of the site.

Norman said this doesn’t instill confidence in the team.

“The taxpayers deserve better. The taxpayers deserve a lot better than what they’re getting,” he said.

On the phone, a spokesman for Tepper Sports and Entertainment told Terry he had no comment.
