Demolition of the dilapidated portions of the building complex, known in its entirety as the Danville Hotel Territory, will begin after Jan. 8 (2014), clearing the way for work to start in early February on an 18-month, $25 million construction project to create a 35,000-square-foot retail, residential and commercial development in the heart of downtown.
