Beverly Apartments, by Mattb325.
---------------------------------------

Bring some retro mid-century glamour to your cities with Beverly Apartments.

It is inspired by a real-life US west coast building which was originally designed as an office building, but with its distinctive, cantilievered, bucket-shaped balconies, was ripe for a residential re-purposing in SC4. 

In game it is offered as an R§§ apartment.

The apartments are mostly 1 bedroom, but with wide curtain glass windows feel spacious and airy. The ground floor and lower ground floors are reserved for shops and gallery spaces. Secure underground parking and a pool complete the ammenities for all the residents.

These apartments are presented in 2 options: a 4x2 and a 4x3 lot.

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 File!

If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod.

---------------------------------------

NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:

As these models contain garaged underground parking, the lots do not come with parking textures. If you wish to add acres of parking or change the concrete textures, please use the lot editor to do so.

---------------------------------------

DEPENDENCIES:

This lot requires no external dependencies.

@sejr99999 Before I read your review just wrote almost the same at SC4D :D:D

"Oh man! :)
It's really amazing. Now I see, that one of my next cities will be based on you lots, well I'm already using pretty much your stuff everywhere in my cities, but what I'm talking about is a nearly full MattB325's stuff city. ;)

Thank you your work on these gems! :)"

Well, I can quote myself, because it fits here nicely! :)

Thank you  I will have to build a city using only your creations   I think you have made everything needed for a functional and 

attractive city and I really like this newest apartment building with its underground parking, rooftop pool and unique balconies

also the nightlighting shows a lot of attention to recreating a realistic nighttime appearance

Really great!  You do such a good job of filling in the middle sized residential and commercial buildings so sorely missing from the game.

I love that mid-century look, that you cannot be sure if the building is social housing or a luxury condo. It's an instant download (no, seriously, I'm writing this on the phone while turning up the computer)!

      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

      I Kellydale2003 present to you
      the Russian-Canadian-Torontonian
      inspired luxury residentials...
       
       
      Vohcem Condominiums!
       
       
       

       
       
      Vohcem Condominiums on the Lakeshore is a 100% fictional tower inspired by the amazing condos of the South Core of Downtown Toronto located along Lakeshore Boulevard. The tall yet slim structures of Downtown Toronto's South Core house thousands of Toronto residents in their ultra-modern luxury condo suites! The most recent trend in condo markets has been the partial or full rental of the condo suites to local or international hotels... making the Toronto condo market boom even more and inspire more projects like this!
      When I (Kellydale2003) first thought of building a tower like this I just started with a square, bent the edges, and rotated it slightly to break away from the traditional orientation of buildings in SimCity 4! The treated and inspired glass taught me an important lesson; Focal points can be made from the busy reflective windows. Therefore the yellow, blue, and grey facade was designed as a focal point for the whole tower... giving more culture and architectural interest to the tower.
      Soaring at a humble 36 stories of 175.4m (120% for SimCity 4) it fits in a comfortable 2x3 (32x48m) lot.
       
      The name "Vohcem" comes from the Russian word for the number "eight".
       

       
      As my personal policy always abides... NO dependencies! (:
       
       
       
      Download the MAXIS NIGHT file if you do not have SimFox's Darknight installed in your plugins!
      Download the DARK NIGHT file if you have Dark Night installed!
       
       
      For more upcoming projects visit my thread! (:

       
       
      Enjoy!
       
      , Kellydale2003
       
      ps; I do know that the phonetic version of 'eight' in Russian is spelled differently! But for anyone who knows Canadians... We like to spell things our own way and is still legally and officially the right way of spelling it! eh! (:
       
      ps2; You're on a Canadian website... So bleh :b you "Grammar-ologists!"

      Perth Council Building, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Inspired by the Council Building in Perth's Stirling Gardens, here is another iconic early 1960's building.
      This is an example of the modernist style with Bauhaus leanings, and has distinctive external 'T' shaped sun-shades in alternating patterns over the curtain glass wall to block out the hot Western Australian sun. Conversely, the roof area has a perspex covered walkway which I imagine would be about as comfortable as an ant under a magnifying glass in the broiling summer heat!
      It is with the 'T' shaped awnings that I taken most of the liberties with this building; reducing the width of the top part of the 'T' to ensure that each sun-shade is clearly visible in game rather than blurring into one. 
      The real-life building was actually slated for demolition in the 1990's, but was saved and renovated as well as adding one extra floor at the top of the building. 
      Recently, the building was also fitted thousands of coloured leds: hence, the unusual, and prettily-coloured night-lights.
      This BAT functions as a government building and town hall in game. 
      In addition to providing your sims with 185 highly desirable civic jobs, it will help alleviate the commercial demand caps that can hinder city development. Given the way that the game is designed, in addition to providing health, education, safety, etc, using rewards is an absolutely necessary part of being able to develop large cities and regions.
      It sits on a 5x3 lot and will easily blend in with other park lots (such as the SFBT mid-wealth set) that use the Maxis R$$ plain grass. Similarly, given the fact that the building is 13 floors high, it will also work well in a dense city environment.
      * It is offered as a reward without needing to meet pre-existing conditions.
      * It is located in the REWARD Menu 
      * It can be placed more than once in a city. 
      * It DOES NOT over-write the ingame town hall (or any re-lotted versions there-of), so can be used in conjunction with the standard Maxis town hall reward.
      * It DOES NOT over-write any of my other town hall lots (so can be used in conjunction with these as well).

      NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
      Sadly, negative comments/reviews from a few members of the community continue to force me to add this utterly ridiculous disclaimer...this building has underground parking, and I have not used parking textures.

      Alighieri Apartments, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Alighieri apartments is a fictional creation in the modern international style. 
      These apartments are 14 floors high and designed to fit into tight inner-city 2x2 blocks. It will work as a stand-alone apartment building as well as in a wall to wall environment. It also provides a little bit of much needed competition to the HKABT/Bixel apartments which have few competitors in the 2x2 space.
      Like many inner-city apartment buildings, the ground floor is devoted to retail space.
      The tower area has four apartments per floor, each apartment has a corner balcony; the street-facing apartments are larger (3 bedrooms) and have floor-to-ceiling glass in the lounge area. 
      The rear apartments are 2 bedrooms each. There is no penthouse suite, instead residents enjoy a roof-top communal pool. Basement parking rounds out inner-city convenience.
      This is a growable R§§ apartment on a 2x2 lot on all tilesets.
      ---------------------------------------
      STATS R§§:
      Lot size :                   2x2 
      Growth Stage:         7 (Medium & High Density Zoning)
      Bulldoze Cost:         § 807
      Capacity Satisfied:  R§ 1,106, R§§ 612
      Pollution:                  5 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage )
      Pollution Radius:    5/6/0
      Power Consumed:  9 Mwh
      Water Consumed:   24 Gal/Month
      Building Style:          Houston/Euro/New York/Chicago

      ---------------------------------------
      NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
      Sadly, due to the complaints from a few members of the community, I continue to have to make the parking texture 'disclaimer' on all of my releases. 
      This building is designed for inner-city areas. With the exception of the US mid-west where there has been massive, continued economic downturn and a flight to suburbia, no inner city area in the world has acres of parking: land is simply too expensive. 
      This building has underground parking for residents only and visitors are expected to arrive by either public transport or park their car on the street; therefore no parking textures are included in the lot. 
      If, in the ingame screen shots, there appears to be a parking texture used, it is purely coincidental and merely belongs to an adjacent lot that is not part of this download. 
      If you want acres of parking or desire a different parking lot texture, then use the lot editor to make that change.
