Developers planning to bring new life to the old Celanese property in east Rock Hill hope to get state tax credits available to help spur the redevelopment of former textile mill sites.

City leaders voted Monday to support the company’s efforts and to rezone the 1,000 acres to allow for residential, retail and industrial uses on differents parts of the property off Cherry Road near Interstate 77.

“It’s an important step in trying to make these very difficult projects economically feasible,” said Stephen Turner, the city’s economic development director.

Rock Hill officials helped persuade state legislators to create the tax credit in 2004. Since then, it has been used to help pay for renovations at The Cotton Factory and the Highland Park Mill.
