Failing Panthers Rock Hill Facility Site Goes Up For Sale

ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) – More than two years after plans were announced to erect a state-of-the-art training facility and team headquarters for the Carolina Panthers, the property on which construction began is now in sale.

The property, listed as ‘Rock Hill Viewpoint‘, on the Colliers website, is just off I-77 near what will be exit 81 in Rock Hill.

On March 7, 2022, Panthers owner David Tepper announced that the $800 million project would be halted. Just over a month later, on April 19, it was announced that the massive project would be completed.

In the months that followed, Tepper’s real estate company, GT Real Estate, filed for bankruptcy and was the subject of multiple legal complaints.

Now, less than a year later, the 245-acre mixed-use development site is up for sale.

According to the Colliers online listing, the property has the following characteristics:

  • 245 acres of mixed-use development potential for healthcare, hospitality, institutions, multi-family, office, retail, entertainment and/or destination
  • Zoning: MP-C
  • Privileged access to I-77 and the new exit 81 interchange (May 2023)
  • Close to Charlotte Douglas Airport and Greater Charlotte, NC
  • Booming population growth due to quality of life and lifestyle along the Catawba River

Since buying the Panthers in 2018, Tepper has also expressed interest in building a new home stadium.

WBTV has contacted Tepper Sports & Entertainment for comment.
