ROCK HILL, S.C. — Out with the hold and in the with a proven redesign. One of the most iconic buildings in our area is getting a facelift. The Thread will welcome a place for restaurants shops and spaces to live. It will help connect Old Town Rock Hill with Winthrop University. But it comes with a pretty price. The project will cost hundreds of millions of dollars. All to bring a 20th-century textile mill into a new generation.  The hope is that the redesign pays off. After all, converting old mills is nothing new.
