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.

Creating Places: Hilton's Home2Suites Part II

Has anybody noticed the almost stunningly small footprint of the Hilton Home2Suites Hilton that will front Division Street and be sited on the east side of Bristol on Broadway? I'm not certain of the square footage but it will rank among the most modest of any the city has seen for a hotel. Of note, this could render a very distinctive building, due to its height (seven stories) related to its footprint.
