I hate AirBnB. It just displaces renters and takes jobs away from hotel workers. I also hate the way they lobbyists for this 10 billion dollar company get to re-write our housing laws. I am sorry if you can't make ends meet- but dragging down the city with the AirBnB bs is not the answer.
Well, I just went to the site and identified two illegal rentals in the Pearl. I then called the property managers and directed them to the ads. The property managers were "not amused."
So- there will be two apartment vacancies in the Pearl.
Just use them as residences and not motels and you will be fine.
