Revisioning the Yorktowne

Get the latest redevelopment updates on the Yorktowne project here.





The Yorktowne Hotel has been a cornerstone of downtown York since 1925 , and embodied a sense of progressiveness and momentum that characterized a City on the move, during its opening.  Two years after the grand opening of the hotel, an addition was constructed adding hotel rooms and expanding the ballroom.  The Yorktowne Hotel featured the elegance of a grand hotel.  The 11-story building was designed in Renaissance revival that refelects the vivacious spirit of the 1920s with 20-foot-high ceilings and oranate decor.  



The York County Industrial Development Authority (YCIDA) announced on January 5, 2016 that it finalized the purchase of the historic Yorktowne Hotel on December 18, 2015. The purchase of the hotel was the first step in a strategic plan to redevelop the propety into a mixed-use building. The project received a $10 million-dollar grant from Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP). 

The hotel closed on Sunday, November 6, 2016, with a planned reopening for late 2018.
