So, I got Fifth Ward to be profitable. I basically zoned a lot of things that will need to be upgraded and made to look better later. I guess I'm taking great pleasure in the fact that why I'm doing this, I'm not cheating. Well one thing, sound walls. But I feel those are a regional expense, and that budget we don't see. They only apply to the highways of the region. I would have made them have no park effect, but I couldn't find ones that did that. And I haven't modded them yet.
So without further ado, here is the tile:
So some key points of this tile. I put in the intersection that was the white circle. That was a challenge, but I finally got it. So, I'm not completely happy with way my interchanges look, but I hate those. So hard to make. Also note, there is house and a military base here. Part of what makes this tile profitable. Now a military base needs a fence around, and they put in a high security one. They lost the guard shack at the way in, but the secondary one is still in place. Hopefully they will find the one on the way in soon. (If you know of a guard shack, please post link)
And I swear I turned the zots off, but they came back. Also I forgot to turn the grid off. I will get better at this, but there you have it. Now I said I did lots of zoneing to get a profitable tile. Here is my residential that needs help with trees, parks, schools, etc. I have not gotten there yet, but I will slowly. As someone pointed out, they like how I slowly upgrade things. Well, I will upgrade this whole tile. Ok, maybe not the military base section. I'm happy with that.

And last, the power that supplies the region. I'm thinking of modding a new power plant though. One that never ages. Only because that gets old, buildoze, build, buildoze, build. I'm busy planting trees over here!

What I am thinking of doing, is getting a skin I like, mod it to give way more power. Make it never die. And build the facility I want here. While I like some real stuff, I guess I'm cutting corners on things that I hate. Shrug. It is my region, and I fell I should tell you what I'm doing though. That way you don't think I did it all without some cutting corners.
