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: Shining with Seanachie


The rehabbing of the building formerly home to Seanachie Irish pub (located on the southeast corner of the Broadway and Fourth Avenue intersection and seen here before renovation began) is taking shape nicely. I like the choice of windows. This is a large structure at a very prominent location. It needs to shine.
