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.

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:-) )

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

      The Columbia Center, formerly named the Bank of America Tower and Columbia Seafirst Center, is a skyscraper in downtown Seattle, Washington. The 76-story structure is the tallest building in Seattle and the state of Washington, reaching a height of 937 ft (286 m). At the time of its completion, the Columbia Center was the tallest structure on the West Coast; as of 2017, it is the fourth-tallest, behind buildings in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
      The Columbia Center, developed by Martin Selig and designed by Chester L. Lindsey Architects, began construction in 1982 and was completed in 1985. The building is primarily leased for class-A office spaces by various companies, with the lower floors including retail space and the upper floors including a public observatory and private club lounge. The tower has the tallest public viewing area on the West Coast and west of the Mississippi. It occupies most of the block bounded by Fourth and Fifth Avenues and Cherry and Columbia Streets.

    • Wow, what a fantastic building! I like the intricate shapes of this one, and the many different areas. There are so many details to take in that it really takes a while to grasp the entire structure. I also agree that there's not much going in in terms of conference centres, so this really fills a gap. Kudos for all the reward modding too - I know that part is pretty tedious und ungratifying work (unless you're some sick masochist ). What I also like is how well the lot complements the building, and it acomplishes that with so few and so simple means. Just a few default overlays and props, and we have a lot that leaves nothing to be desired. The one tiny suggestion I have is that all your recent buildings have had their names (and, in cases like this one, also their function) baked into the model. This is not bad generally because it allows a better visual appearance, but sometimes it limits flexibility a bit. The building in question could totally double as a modern city college, for example, or maybe even as a university (not all modern universities are sitting on a lush campus, after all!), but then there's the "Convention Center" lettering in front. I guess it can be covered with cleverly placed flora props... Fun fact: I never knew that there was an Occupant Group "burning dude maker" - what the...???
    • Do we need to delete Oppie's and replace yours?   Ps. Thank you so much for revamping this amazing mod.
    • Can someone make the Wilshire Grand Tower for SimCity3000?
    • With regard to the issue of content, the disjunctive perturbation of the spatial relationships brings within the realm of discourse the distinctive formal juxtapositions.
