Carolina Panthers, owned by a billionaire David Tepper, moved its training facilities and headquarters from Charlotte, NC to Rick Hill, SC. The project will also include other mixed-use real estate developments such as shops, a hotel, and restaurants. The team will keep playing at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. SC provided a subsidy package that included state and local funds. At the state level: $160 million, including $115 to 120 million in job development tax credits and $40 million in highway work. At the local level: $225 million in infrastructure improvements such as site work and road construction. Local subsidies will redirect 100 percent of city taxes, 75 percent of school taxes, and 65 percent of county taxes back to the development until $225 million is reached.
