Mr. Kojelis only tells PART of the story. While the demand for transient lodging has dipped slightly in the past 18 months, Base Realignement and Closure (BRAC) law is moving thousands of students to Fort Lee by the end of 2011.
The installation currently has 577 rooms for its transient population. On a daily average, the current demand requires 479 additional rooms in commercial hotels outside the gates. In 2011 the number of transient students requiring lodging is expected to increase to an average of about 2300. Adding an additional 1,000 rooms, to bring the on post total to 1577, will not meet these future demands.
That leaves the need for 723 additional rooms on the local economy-- an INCREASE to local businesses of 244 rooms.
