The Carolina Panthers Rock Hill Development — an innovative mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly community — is currently under construction. The mascaro Barton Malow, a joint venture team was chosen by the Panthers organization to perform construction management services on the 200+ acre site, adjacent to I-77, and will initially include: new headquarter offices; an indoor practice facility; outdoor practice fields; scalable small stadium to host high school sports, concerts, festivals, etc.; an indoor facility to host games, concerts, and corporate events; and a premier orthopedic sports medicine facility.
Inspired by the quarries of South Carolina and the City of Rock Hill, the Populous design was introduced with the following fundamental principles: to think football and beyond, to be smart and state-of-the-art; and to be authentically Panthers.
The entrance, a series of canted glass walls, with articulated metal panels and LED displays are choreographed to captivate visitors upon entry. The west lobby serves as the team entry and opens to a one-of-a-kind commons area serving as a social gathering space for café style dining, impromptu meetings, and multi-purpose events.
The pavilion houses the facility’s indoor playing field. Beyond the pavilion lies an outdoor playing field, spectator seating, and bermed viewing areas, which will serve as a unique outdoor canvas for live events. For increased capacities and integration of indoor and outdoor space, the pavilion’s two 90-foot wide by 80-foot tall operable glazed doors will open to transform the complex into a spectacular event space for concerts and live events.
