Renovation work begins on Gabe’s Tower in Owensboro

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - Owensboro officials say significant work on Gabe's Tower begins this week.

City Manager Bill Parrish tells 14NEWS, crews will start to remove asbestos from the inside.

Once that's complete, the inside will be gutted- setting the stage for a modern hotel.

Erlanger-based, Environmental Demolition Group, is handling the project.

There's no word yet on a completion date for renovations on the old hotel.
