In 2001 the City of Rock Hill in conjunction with six other partners came together to begin the creation of the Old Town Master Plan. Winthrop University, York Technical College, Rock Hill School District 3, York County, York County Regional Chamber of Commerce and Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation began planning what the future of our urban core would become. This urban development plan has evolved over the years into a comprehensive strategic initiative known as Knowledge Park.
Knowledge Park is an urban, mixed-use business park specifically designed for the knowledge-economy. Home to technology leaders, innovative startups, and creative industries, plus a thriving University, diverse neighborhoods, and the city's first craft breweries, Knowledge Park is emerging as the perfect location for businesses and people to make their own.
Knowledge Park is made up of three sub-districts: Winthrop University, University Center, and Old Town Rock Hill. These three areas connect to make Knowledge Park a pedestrian-friendly cultural center of the town with restaurants, businesses, shopping, events, education and training facilities, and plenty of apartments & housing.
