    I love the general content of this blog, by the way, and I like reading about what other people dream of for certain spots.

    I look forward to reading more about the Triangle in the future.

    Please no HOTELS! I do not want a hotel as my neighbor especially when they will be sharing a parking lot.

    Dear Neighbor,

    Imagine the vitality a trendy hotel will bring to our parts? All of the Euro-guests with spending dollars. The hip lobby lounges. The overpriced cocktails. I WANT IT!

    I’m so over hotels that have the word INN attached to the end of their names.

    Hey MBG,

    Actually, DC Jeff isn’t opposed to having a hotel in neigborhood, the issue is having the hotel connected to and sharing resources of the Dumont West building. Originally, the Dumont East was to be sold as condo as well, so sharing the amenities wasn’t a big deal, but when you have transient tourists/workers etc. sharing the same garage and rooftop, then security becomes an even bigger issue than before.

    I know when we signed the contract on our place nearly two years ago, the east building was to be condo, but if we would have thought twice about it if they said it would be a hotel… unless the outlined exactly how the facilities would be shared and such.
