Riverwalk hospitality plaza groundbreaking set
A groundbreaking for a future hospitality plaza is 10 a.m. June 14 at Rock Hill’s Riverwalk, the former site of the Celanese Celriver facility.
The Celriver Legacy Project Board has developed plans to build a Legacy Plaza to preserve the heritage of the old facility, its former employees and its contributions to the local economy.
The facility, which sat on an 1,100-acre site, produced about 5 million pounds of cellulose acetate polymer and fiber per week. The work is contracted through TG&R Landscape Group of Rock Hill, according to the board, and will include artwork of life-size silhouettes of Celriver workers designed and produced by Bob Doster’s Backstreet Studio in Lancaster.
