Danville Hotel property demolition set to begin

Former Wild West structures coming down; Danville Hotel, McCauley House to be restored

The deteriorating Danville Hotel Wild West structures appear to be coming down soon.

Town officials have announced that the private developers, Castle Companies, have scheduled demolition and construction activities to begin at the prominent downtown property some time during this week.

The rundown buildings set for removal date back to the 1950s. The developers propose to replace nearly 14,400 square feet of previous retail, office and restaurant space with more than 34,500 square feet of new restaurant locations, storefront spots and 16 residential units.

The Danville Hotel building itself, as well as the McCauley House, will be preserved and restored as part of the project, which is expected to last into 2015, town officials said Friday.

Representatives from Castle Companies did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The construction activities will affect public access around the project area. The sidewalk along the southern side of Prospect Avenue will remain closed during the project's duration, and drivers might see minor traffic delays as workers' vehicles enter and exit the property, town officials said.
