Gateway to Growth and Revitalization in Southern West Virginia

In January 2016, Governor Earl Ray Tomblin announced plans to develop the largest mixed-use development project in West Virginia history.

  • Less than 30 miles from the Capital City of Charleston and a regional airport




Site Specifics

State’s Commitment to Next Steps

The Rock Creek Development Park project represents vast potential to bring about economic restructuring in the southern region of West Virginia, a region that has been affected by the downturn of the coal industry. This project holds great potential for both the region and investors as we chart a brighter course for the Mountain State.
