Hilton Tapestry Collection is a hotel under development in the former Protective Life building at 2027 1st Avenue North, adjoining the 21st Street Viaduct. It is expected to open in 2021.

Rhaglan Hospitality is serving as developer and operator for the hotel, which will be branded under Hilton's "Tapestry Collection" nameplate. The company, headed by Jim Lewis, purchased the property in early 2018 and applied for a $2.5 million loan from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to offset property acquisition and pre-construction costs.

Fifth Dimension Architecture designed the renovations, which include retail or restaurant tenant space in an adjoining low-rise building. Development plans were approved by the Birmingham Design Review Committee in July 2018 with an anticipated opening in late 2019, but the start of construction was delayed until January 2020.
