A rendering by AB Sketches shows how the Yorktowne Hotel will look when renovations are complete in late 2018 or early 2019.

Four local companies were awarded contracts for various demolition projects on the Yorktowne Hotel in preparation for major renovations.

Kinsley Construction, the construction manager for the project, reviewed the public bids and chose the lowest responsible bidders, according to a news release from the York County Industrial Development Authority.

The contracts went to: EHC Associates, of Lancaster, for asbestos abatement and selective interior demolition; Terra Technical Services, of Downingtown, for bulk demolition of the parking garage and hotel above the garage; James Craft & Sons, of York, for mechanical systems capping and demolition; and IB Abel, of York, for electrical demolition.

The work described in these contracts is expected to take about six months to complete, according to the release, and public bidding for interior renovations is expected to begin this summer.

The historic downtown York hotel has been closed since November 2016 for the $20 million renovation that is partly funded by a $10 million state grant.

The hotel is slated to reopen in late 2018 or early 2019.
