During the early 20th century developers within both the downtown and Columbia's suburbs embraced a new form of housing — purpose-built, multi-occupant residences. Such structures assumed different layouts, accommodating both individuals and families intent on living within certain neighborhoods, though not necessarily able or interested in purchasing individual houses. Examples of this housing trend are abundant within areas of the Hollywood-Rose Hill neighborhoods. The volume of multi-family housing along South Pickens Street and the angle in which the road intersects streets within the remainder of Hollywood lying to the east is apparent in the 1956 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map.
