About This File

Hello everyone.

This lot is a close reproduction of a famous office tower complex in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The name of the complex is "Cidade Jardim Corporate Center" The complex is made out of office and residential buildings but in order to adapt it to SC4, only the office section is being depicted.


The building models were made by our talented JP Schriefer and the lot, base texture and several props were made by me and are of course included in this download.
2 lots are included, one growable CO$$$ 8X9 with 2110 jobs and one Landmark 8X9 lot with jobs with the exact same stats as the growable.
Depending on the models you download, you can have either the Maxis Night or Dark Night versions but not both. Please follows the instructions provided on the building models download page.
In order to see the DN models in their full glory you must also download Simfox Day and Night Modd. Not required with the MN models.

As I said on the dev thread, this is really a work of art! It's not only a great recreation of the complex original, but also a pool of awesome details, specially props (that, I insist, deserve to be used in more forms). And while the esplanade indeed looks a bit awkward to the first sight, it is justified when the recreation aim takes precedence.

This project ended up pretty good IMO. Nick's intention was to make the Lot based on the real one with some modifications, and actually - I don't know if it's happening everywhere - but these newer projects in Brazil are always highlighting the towers doing empty esplanades around them, especially in São Paulo and other very dense cities where you have a concrete jungle, it kinda relieves the view. I think this lot and these buildings definitely won't fit in every city, so you just need to check where they fit better *:P
The pond and the bridge are lovely, and the textures and trees were very well chosen.

Thank you for 'leaving' your work area a bit to give some attention to this project *:)

5 stars for the added props and textures alone *:)
After looking at the satellite picture, I'd say it's a pretty accurate representation, especially considering SC4's limitations.  Nice work, and thanks for donating your time to help lot JP's great models.

Don't get me wrong, I really do appreciate all of the custom textures created specifically for this, but it would have been great if the vast expanse of plain concrete was filled with something...interesting.

Too much empty space behind the blocks. It looks unfinished, I think it wouldn't be problem for You to fix it soon *;)

Wow, this is different ; those little gardens... the green water.. [I wouldn't ind having them as separate plops !!! :-)] A very nice way to highlight those great buildings,  I like it a lot. But indeed the grey expanse could be more interesting  ; however, if it is plop-friendly... (is it ? if no, could it be ? we could then provide our own interests:-) )

      Simmons Bank Tower is a 40-story skyscraper located at 425 West Capitol Avenue in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas. At 547 feet (167 m) high, it is currently the tallest building in Arkansas.
      The new tower was born out of discussions between two ascending business executives, John Flake, a Little Rock real estate developer, and Jerry Maulden, president of Arkansas Power & Light (now Entergy). Construction began in 1984 on the $72 million building, and in 1986 the building was completed and dubbed The Capitol Tower. Currently, the namesake tenant, Simmons Bank, is headquartered in the tower with presence in various markets of Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, and Tennessee. Flake & Kelley Commercial, the current name of the development firm of the tower, performs the management and leasing of the tower, and the Doyle Rogers Company is the special asset manager.
      The building was renamed Simmons Tower in April 2014.

      Former First Federal Savings and Loan California, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      It's not only "old" buildings that are demolished in the name of the progress.
      This building was constructed in 1959 and used to stand at the corner of Hollywood and Highland Ave, Los Angeles. It formed and framed a famous part of the view from Graumans Chinese Theatre down Hollywood Blvd.
      It was demolished in the late 80s for the Hollywood & Highland project (i.e. where the Academy awards are filmed now).
      While this is not an exact recration of the old First Federal Bank, it is a good example of the Southern Californian mid-century, heavy-set, mid-rise office building.
      The beauty of these buildings is sheer quality of their materials: polished limestone with contrasting highly polished granite base, crittal steel windows and polished marble forecourts, but "progress", as well as the need to expensively retro-fit many mid-century buildings in shaky California saw these gems consigned to the wrecking ball.
      To make it a little bit different, I've angled it 45 degrees for a corner lot as there really aren't many such taller buildings in this game and by doing this it complements a lot of the taller angled residentials from Sim Fox, Bixel, HKABT et al.
      This building is offered as a growable high-wealth mid-rise building on all tilesets. It grows easily, but as it is limited to a 4x4 corner lot (there is one for both left and right corners) it isn't weedy. Hold the CTRL key while zoning to ensure that you get the lot size.

      This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.
      You must keep only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. Regardless of which file you choose to keep, make sure you DO NOT delete the Lot or Desc files!
      If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod:

      One Kansas City Place is the tallest building in Missouri located in downtown Kansas City, bounded by 12th Street to the north, Baltimore Avenue to the west, and Main Street to the east. Built in 1988, the 190.1 m (624 ft) skyscraper was designed by Patty Berkebile Nelson & Immenschuh and replaced the Town Pavilion as the tallest building in the city.
      One Kansas City Place is considered an architectural salute to City Hall, which is located 5 blocks east of Main on 12th Street.
      One Kansas City Place was constructed as the first part of a much larger project named Kansas City Place, which never was completed. The project was to include townhomes, office towers, and residential/hotel towers. The Kansas City Place project was originally proposed during the real estate boom of the 1980s. The plan was developed by Frank Morgan and his uncle Sherman Dreiseszun who had earlier built Town Pavilion that was completed in 1986.
      The tower was proposed for the South Loop (So-Lo) area south of downtown's central business district. The project included a plethora of skyscrapers with uses ranging from offices to hotels and residential buildings. Unsubstantiated claims hold that a major cause of the project's failure to come to its full stature was the complaints of residents, claiming it would ruin Kansas City's skyline, which had remained largely unchanged for 30 years.
      One Kansas City Place was to be the third-tallest of several towers constructed, though it is the tallest that was actually constructed. Today, it is one of the most recognizable buildings in Kansas City's skyline.

    • In case you're interested this is what I've got after extracting and installing the appropriate files.  Really no difference at all compared to when I first wrote you.
    • Do you know whether or not this file is compatible with SC4 on Steam?  I extracted the .7Z file and installed the files and I've still got nothing but a big blank lot.
    • Ahh, gotcha.  I'm using a Mac.  So the .7z file needs to be extracted.  That part I wasn't aware of, I just loaded the 7z file into my plugins folder.  I'll give it a shot!  Thanks!
    • Thought you might know it, but it was worth a shot. Ah yes, those real-estate photos - I had, in fact, seen an article about that blog somewhere and nearly forgotten about it afterwards, but then my sister gave me a tear-off calendar for Christmas: every day a horrible picture and a great one-liner. I love that stuff.
    • @nycsc4 ... This file should only include the texture and lot files - due to copyright reasons I have to link to anything that is not mine (the stadium in this case). I'm not sure what you mean by the "invisible KS file." On the OneDrive, there is a button for KS_AllianzArena 15x12 which once downloaded, will give a *.7z file. If you're using the default windows extractor, it may be a problem (not sure if it can handle 7zip files or not), but something like winrar should unzip it just fine. The .desc and .model files you need will be right there. Let me know if that's not working for you.
