Let's take a gander at what new things San Lorenzo has since we've been gone. (Oh, btw... ignore the street textures. I've tried changing them back to the American style, but whatever. Let's just say the two-way roads are painted with white stripes because this state thinks it's better than everyone else )

The city's newest tower is the Hawthorne Center, designed by a Spanish architecture group. Surprisingly, the construction was very quick and efficient.
The structure has met some controversy, because some small businesses and shops were forced to pack up and relocate. However, the protests of the shop owners and locals were no match for the massive power of corporate interests.
Although the construction for the Hawthorne Center was quick and efficient, the site of the old Arena is still a construction site... not much has changed due to funding issues.
Around Globe Square, a new company has moved into the sleek modern Harborside Plaza 234. The company is "Intertube, inc" which specializes in Internet...stuff. To be honest, nobody really knows what exactly people do in there.
