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.

User Feedback

The actual plaza in São Paulo is itself a masterpiece of landscape architecture.  This project seems to need one more phase of development.  JP Schriefer's building models are so accurate to what the real towers look like, it seems the rest of the plaza and landscaping also need the same amount of detail and accuracy, otherwise it looks incomplete.

I suppose I could have made a colossal 20X9 lot if the residential buildings would also have been made. Also the underground parking system and every leaf, pebble and sand grain just to make everyone happy.

Remember SC4 3D  limitations hence the "adaptations" necessary in order to transfer it to the game. I challenge anyone to make a better lot and texture set for this complex.

Eggs must be broken if you want an omelet.

Here is the section I adapted to SC4 and I see lots of empty spaces in between the buildings.

Can't make everybody happy.  Stand your ground!  As you said, you could have included every tiny detail, and there would still be somebody with a criticism ("...but you missed that tree over there!")

My version of the comeback you used would have been along the lines of:  'This is my take on the property.  If you don't like what I did, you are of course free to NOT use my download.  If you want something different, you are also free to use the same models, and expend YOUR time and YOUR effort to create a lot more to your liking!'

      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.

      NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:
      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.

      750 Seventh Avenue
      750 Seventh Avenue is a 615 ft (187m) tall skyscraper in New York City. It was completed in 1989 and has 36 floors. Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associate designed the building, and it is owned by Hines,[1] a Texas based real estate investment company.[2] The building's continuous helix design, culminating in a chimney-like extension, was caused by the New York City Building Code, which requires setbacks. The 84 exterior column transfers exist because of the owner's requirement for a column-free space. It is tied with the New York Life Building for the 74th tallest building in New York City.
      In April 2011 Fosterlane Management from Kuwait announced they are buying the building from Hines for $485 million
      Landmark version.
      Hope you like it and be better than my previous buildings.

    • The appropriate words escape me - this is freaking brilliant!!! You've done some great stuff over the years Rivit (particularly from an Australian bias), but this tool is, well, exemplary. I've been away for some years and have missed a lot, but this one has been a significant highlight as I try to wrangle my old plugin folder into line (which, prior to running this, I thought was in pretty good shape...)
    • If you get Brown Boxes, dont install the HD File in the Mntoes Holt Farm Close Dependencie, you must use the Standard one!
    • Good work.  I was having a bit of fun with the complaints over dependencies that a lot of content creators get.  I already have all of them organized into a folder.  Maybe I should start a thread with a list of them so somebody could get them all organized and then download new files without repeat downloading.    It also is a good example of grungy and light industrial, it doesn't look overly polished.   The landscaping is very good too.  And its a IHT building which adds more realism to the high tech sector.  Thank you.   
    • @RandyE These are quite the most common dependencies, and this is actually nothing compared to my SeaPort Project and its upcoming expansion which will contain more than 40 different building dependencies including a lot from Mattb325 and these are the spec. dependencies. I like this building it was growing nicely last night in one of my cities.
