Please just make sure that we are not going to delude the area even worse than the Motel 6 does next door. It is already a shame that the issues that arise from that hotel are across from the Governor's mansion. I live approx. 4 blocks west and we regularly get vagrant walk throughs and police manhunts in the area. We have a beautiful neighborhood and it is well established in Topeka, constantly deluding our areas with possible transient type hotels hurts all of Topeka and diminishes property value which is already a problem in Topeka versus cities in our proximity. Hopefully this is not the intent of the property owner but this does not sound like a regular apartment complex from the description.
