I present to you my first housing pack based on various old buildings throughout Santiago, Chile.
These are all low-wealth, low density residential w2w houses. They grow on 1x1 and 1x2 lots. There are a total of 34 unique lots, as you can see in the pictures.
If you like these houses, you may also like my other BATs that I'm currently working on. You can check them out here.
If you have any questions, or comments, please let me know!
Edit: I noticed I used an old picture for the primary screenshot. The textures on the last picture for the last set of houses are the final version, not the ones on the main picture. This is the only slight difference.
Edit 2: ...I also noticed that I've uploaded this file to the wrong category. It should fall under "SimCity 4 Buildings (BATs)".
Want some variety for your R$ Sims? Tired of the drab purpose built tenements? Why not house your R$ residents in the history of a once grand, but now faded home?
These 2.5-storied terraces, based on one in Surry Hills, were speculatively built around 1870 in an early Victorian Franco-Italianate style and feature 14ft ceilings to the 1st and 2nd floors, recessed entrances & large arched windows to the principal rooms: during the 20’s it was carved up into 6 flats & left to decay.
But, because old city homes don’t stay run-down for long, included in this download is the first stage (still R$) of the renovators’ dream: the middle & end terraces are sold & the new owners start to paint & renovate.
Then, as the final terrace is sold (the house is now R$$) the renovation is complete. Surely that’s not a faux Victorian kitchen conservatory addition out the back…oh dear, there goes the neighbourhood.
Stats Little Riley St Terrace:
Stage 1 house: 35 R$ on a 1x2 lot (NY/Chicago). Grows on medium density stage 3
Stage 2 house: 28 R$ on a 1x2 lot (NY/Chicago). Grows on medium density stage 3
Stage 3 house: 25 R$$ (back to 35 R$ when dilapidated) on a 1x2 lot (NY/Chicago). Grows on medium density stage 4
My “The Great Australian Outdoor Toilet Prop Pack” (included). Part of the great Australian tradition, now available to all of your Sims: the dingy, bug infested toilet at the end of the back-yard. Contains four models. (Redback spiders not included).
Unzip both to your Plugins folder: this is my second upload to the STEX and third BAT. Hope you enjoy it!
Mod Edit: Fixed description formatting.
This package contains four lots, three growable residential lots and one filler ploppable designed to create a single-complex.

Whilst these lots are not strictly required, they are useful for finishing off the parking at the back of the complex, along with my included filler lot.
Each lot has around 1,600 R$ Residents (per building) and stats generated using PIM-X. For full details see the included readme file.
Ensure you keep the file MGB_ITS_NickelbyHouse_Resource.dat or these lots will not function correctly. But you can discard any of the lots you may not wish to use.
I have filled my city with residential and commercial and an adjoining city with industrial zones. I have good amenities, good public transportation and good connectivity. Desirability all over the city is pretty good. At the moment I have high demand for residential so I started rezoning some mid and high density residential. However, I see no development in these zones. The houses remain the same low-density. I did get some mid-density housing early on but growth has completely stopped. I don't know what do now. Demand in the other industrial city is exactly the same as this one. Any suggestions on how to stimulate growth?
