Tangeman Quoted in Columbus Dispatch Story Titled “Hotels Used as Homes Might Face New Rules”
Jill Tangeman, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office, was quoted in a Columbus Dispatch story regarding new rules that the city of Columbus may impose on developers of extended stay hotels. According to the story, more individuals are using extended-stay hotels more like apartments and the city may change the rules to reflect this trend.
The story states:
“Extended-stay hotels also would fall under the same parkland-dedication requirements as apartment complexes.
The new rules would apply not only to hotels where people pay weekly rates for stays as long as 30 days, but also to residential hotels used for corporate housing. State law requires stays of at least 30 days for residential hotels, said Jill Tangeman, a lawyer who represents developers of extended-stay properties.
‘The concern has been when you have people staying more than a couple of nights, you’re operating in a more hybrid fashion,’ Tangeman said. ‘There’s value as to having some green space, a little more residential feeling.’”
