Redevelopment of the Yorktowne Hotel

On Tuesday, September 18, Jack Kay and Al Hayes, officers of the York County Industrial Development Authority (YCIDA), presented a very informative program concerning the redevelopment of the historic Yorktowne Hotel. The YCIDA purchased the Yorktowne in December 2015 in order to restore and rebuild this iconic York landmark.  Earlier this year it was announced that the hotel will be part of the Hilton Tapestry Collection of boutique hotels.  This exciting development will be a key part of the success of the project.  Jack and Al covered all aspects of the planning, including a circular drive with an entry from both Duke Street and Market Street that will offer direct access to the lobby as well as a roof top gathering area that will provide panoramic views from the 11 story structure.  Completion will occur in late 2019 or early 2020.
