One of the busier spots in Fort Mill may add restaurants, a bank, preschool and more

A busy section of Gold Hill Road could add new restaurants, a bank, daycare and more business space.

There are homes on three separate parcels that make up the plan. Vulcan Property Group has applied to rezone the parcels to allow a project with office, retail, daycare, bank and restaurant uses.
