@DavidDHetzel that`s a nice Find.

Just had a look at the Whole Area for a bit (i love exploring Cities with Google Earth/Maps/Streetview) and it has an interesting Mix of (mostly) abandoned industrial Buildings and beautiful old Houses.

@nofunk Looks great.There`s always a need for Industrial Buildings like these and i think it will fit in well within W2W Blocks.

Will you do also an abandoned Version that`s purely decorative (and maybe has a little higher Crimerate) or will you focus on a working Lot with Jobs and and a less decayed Design?

Either Way,it will surely be another Top Quality Work.

First I thought, this is a snowboard production facility. But then I thought - well to carry all the snowboards throught this quite small doors to the trucks isn't convenient. They must produce something quite small. Watches? Drugs?

Maybe I miss a loading station or I simply can't see it without textures?

I am going to assume it is the salmon-ish colored semi-arched areas that are taller than the other windows and extent to the ground that will be the loading/unloading docks.

@nofunk Looking really good! My favorite detail so far is the fire escapes.

It seems like it was a Lead and Zinc Melter aswell as a Scrapmetal Dealer.They ceased to operate in the early 50s.

More of the History of this Building can be found here

Someone mentioned something about nearby Rails.I guess they unloaded Freight Cars on the West Side of the Factory and carried the Scrap Metal with smaller Containers into the Factory.

The Building also had a larger Garage Door on the Streetside through which Trucks could drive to unload their Stuff.I`m glad to see you consider my Idea.Also,of course the Fire Escapes need to be different,everything else wouldn`t be Challenge for you :D

 

On a Sidenote:It`s kinda Fun to follow the dilapidated and partly disassembled Train Tracks through that Neighborhood :D

Second Sidenote:Chicago really looks like it was made with Simcity,almost every Street goes from North to South and East to West,only a bunch of Diagonals and FARs doing some Gridbusting :D

 

@nofunk The Details and the moddeling looks great,i`m glad to see you consider my Idea.

And of course those Fire Escapes needed to be different,otherwise it wouldn`t be a Challenge,right?

Will there be roof junk? even though the real one doesn't have any, it just seems odd to me being in the construction field that this type of building would not have a roof top HVAC system but as an older building it might not be structurally built for it and it would require reinforcement or a ground level system which might be cheaper and more typical on a refurbish... and this is probably all a pointless comment so... just keep up the great work I'll end up downloading it anyway.

Amazing! I have to say I'm not surprised because you never disappoint us with your textures. Truly beautiful work.

Textured this looks amazing. I like the roof on the left side with the lost paint and bricks showing through - In my opinion it only needs to be darkened a little bit and maybe some parts where the color is more brown or ocher - basically a little warmer in tint, less blue-ish? But the pattern I like.
