Lisa -- As one who lives almost directly across the street from the property, I am relieved to see construction commencing. As far as the design is concerned, i don't know if you saw any of the prior drawings, but the final one is a huge improvement over the prior ones. People on the Trinity Park Board and others in the neighborhood worked very hard to persuade the developer to invest more into the property to create a design that fit the style of the neighborhood. Part of that was the retention of the facade and the use of an almost entirely brick exterior. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the construction process and the operation of the hotel are not too disruptive to the neighborhood. In truth, I cannot imagine that it will be worse than the fraternity that exists next door to us! I enjoy your writing!
