The proposed work consists of the construction of a professional sports and training facility and corporate headquarters in Rock Hill, South Carolina.  In detail, this project would involve the placement of fill material within 0.87 acre of wetlands and 4,991 linear feet of freshwater tributaries to accomplish phased construction of a mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly community anchored by the National Football League’s Carolina Panthers practice/training facilities and corporate headquarters with emphasis on retail, entertainment, research and development, residential dwellings, commercial offices, medical facilities, recreation, and open space uses.  The applicants have proposed to mitigate for impacts to wetlands and/or waters of the United States by implementing a permittee-responsible mitigation plan on a 484.16-acre parcel in Chester County known as the Landsford Tract (a portion of Parcel Identification Number 162-00-00-001-000).  Proposed mitigation activities would include a combination of preservation, enhancement, and restoration to 19,840 linear feet of stream channels and 1.5-3.0 acres of associated wetlands within the Catawba River watershed.
