Creating Places: A Citizen Observer's Look at Nashville's Built Environment


Writer's Note: William Williams' interest in the manmade environment dates to 1970, at which point the then-young Williams started a collection of postcards of city skylines. The collection now numbers 1,000-plus cards. Among the writer's specific interests are exterior building design, city district planning, demographics, signage, mixed-use development, mass transit and green/sustainable construction and living. Williams began his Creating Places column with The City Paper in February 2005. The column in its original form was discontinued in September 2008 and reinvented via this blog in November 2008. Creating Places can be found on the home page of the website of The City Paper, at which Williams has worked in various capacities since October 2000.

Within the next few days, I will offer a blog post with details of Elliston 23, the large (with significant massing and to hit a 70-foot zenith), mixed-use building slated for the site formerly home to the handsome Father Ryan High School building. I recently talked to two Southern Land Co. officials (the company's architecture division is handling the design) and learned of some interesting specifics. More to follow...
