Key Businesses

Rock Hill has been a strong location for traditional industries for many years, and the city's economy has relied on strong private-public partnerships to develop first-class business parks. 

As the economy becomes more globalized and technology advances, Rock Hill is also emerging as the ideal place for Knowledge Economy businesses to thrive. With the inception of Knowledge Park, companies now have access to the best resources available, including gigabit internet service, a skilled workforce, and a comprehensive mixed-use urban location.

On March 23, 2018, Governor Henry McMaster announced he has recommended, at the request of the City, four census tracts be designated as Opportunity Zones. Census tracts in Rock Hill designated as Opportunity Zones include areas comprising Knowledge Park, the Saluda Street corridor and the Albright Road corridor. These designations, after their finalization, are designed to jumpstart investment and spur economic development in Rock Hill. This program will provide a valuable financing tool to encourage significant economic development in the urban core. The program allows investors to defer paying tax on capital gains if those gains are invested in Opportunity Zones.
