RoundPoint Mortgage coming to Fort Mill

RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corp. will build a $34 million headquarters and will kick off development of Southbridge for Lincoln Harris of Charlotte. It’s the first planned new construction in Southbridge since Lincoln Harris and Cato bought the property that included the Knights Castle site in Fort Mill.

 

RoundPoint Mortgage is also expecting to add another 1,100 jobs after the building is complete.

Klopenstine Dental planned for Springfield Town Center

We have been seeing a lot of building around Springfield Town Center, where the Harris Teeter on Springfield Parkway is located.  It appears that all of the outbuildings directly behind the Harris Teeter are planned for retail office space.

The building located closest to Family Trust FCU is going to be Klopenstine Dental. The address for that building is 452 Mercantile Pl, Fort Mill, SC.  While currently unconfirmed, this might be the new office for Dr. Mark Kopenstine, DDS whom currently is part of Shiland Dentistry in Rock Hill.
