Demolition to Begin This Week for Danville Hotel Site

Construction on the downtown block is estimated to last to 2015.

BY JANE McINNIS

Site owners are set to begin scheduled demolition and construction at the Danville Hotel site located on Prospect and Railroad Avenues this week.

Castle Construction expects the hotel project to last through 2015. The project calls for the addition of 34,585 square feet of residential, retail and restaurant space.

Demolition of existing structures, including the frontier-style buildings constructed in the early 1950s will total 14,000 square feet.

The sidewalk along the south side of Prospect Avenue will be closed for the duration of the project, with expected minor traffic delays as construction vehicles enter and exit the site, according to a recent release from the town.

The historic Danville Hotel building and the McCauley House will be preserved and renovated as a part of the project.  

The Town of Danville will provide information regarding any traffic advisories as the project continues.

This is so so sad ~ Those frontier style buildings give our town so much character and charm. I wish there were a "save the clock tower" movement to save these once-beautiful buildings. Has the town council ever answered where the parking will be? I thought 2 stories was our height limit - aren't these 3 story with residential? I just hope the financial gain for a few isn't ruining Danville for all.
