The hotel’s owners, the York County Industrial Authority, said Tuesday it expects to name a construction manager for the pending renovation, plus a potential hotel operator that would run the reopened Yorktowne, at its next meeting on April 4.
York’s nearly century-old East Market Street hotel was closed in November for what is expected to be a two-year, $20 million renovation effort.
No final plan for what the renovated Yorktowne will look like have been announced.
The IDA this past fall received a $10 million state grant for the project, a grant that requires it to raise the other $10 million in matching funds. It so far has raised at least $6.75 million of the needed amount, authority members said.
At the same time, leaders of the Yorktowne effort are planning a public sale, likely over two Saturdays in May, of items from the hotel.
One official with the Yorktowne project, Kim Hogeman, manager of community affairs for the York County Economic Alliance, will negotiate with York-area auction firms, and one will be chosen to conduct the sale.
