Lofts a Lakeview, a new “hot spot” for discerning professionals seeking a premium rental residence, has been selected as the launch site for the Local Tech Wire Social, a networking series kicking off on Thursday October 27, 2005 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p. m.

Lofts at Lakeview is located in the heart of Durham at 2616 Erwin Road. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be provided and a cash bar will be available.

“As a media partner, we’re thrilled with offering networking opportunities that bring professionals together in a classic, creative atmosphere,” says Rick Smith, managing editor of Local Tech Wire.

Unlike Tech Exec, the Local Tech Wire Social has been designed to appeal to a variety of professionals interested in expanding their network and growing business relationships, not just those in the technology field.

At the Lofts at Lakeview event, an informal and fun environment will be enhanced by access to many of the property’s best of breed amenities, including a WiFi Internet café with complimentary coffee and tea bar, gameroom with shuffleboard and pool table, outdoor fireplace, Hollywood-style screening room with stadium seating and surround sound, plus video gaming lounge with club seating, oversized flat panel display and extensive PlayStation library.

“With our resort-style amenities and impeccable design features, Lofts at Lakeview is at the forefront of the newest living trend in the Triangle. It makes perfect sense for us to be the host the first ever Local Tech Wire Social, where we can welcome both potential residents and Triangle professionals to experience the level of sophistication and resort-style luxury that can only be found at Lofts at Lakeview,” says Brandi Little, Leasing Director for Lofts at Lakeview.
