  3. U.S. Bank (Library) Tower

    U.S. Bank Tower, formerly Library Tower and First Interstate Bank World Center, is a 1,018-foot (310.3 m) skyscraper at 633 West Fifth Street in downtown Los Angeles, California. It is the third tallest building in California, the second tallest building in LA, the fifteenth tallest in the United States, the third tallest west of the Mississippi River after the Salesforce Tower and the Wilshire Grand Tower, and the 92nd tallest building in the world, after being surpassed by the Wilshire Grand Center. Because local building codes required all high-rise buildings to have a helipad, it was known as the tallest building in the world with a roof-top heliport from its completion in 1989 to 2004 when Taipei 101 opened. It is also the third tallest building in a major active seismic region; its structure was designed to resist an earthquake of 8.3 on the Richter scale. It consists of 73 stories above ground and two parking levels below ground. Construction began in 1987 with completion in 1989. The building was designed by Henry N. Cobb of the architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and cost $350 million to build. It is one of the most recognizable buildings in Los Angeles, and often appears in establishing shots for the city in films and television programs.

  7. Great Southwest Building

    The Great Southwest Building, formerly the Petroleum Building, is a skyscraper built in 1926 and located at 1314 Texas Avenue in Downtown Houston, Texas, in the United States. The structure was originally commissioned by Joseph S. Cullinan, founder of The Texas Company, to house the offices of his growing oil and gas business. Designed by New York architect Alfred Bossom, the building features Art Deco styling with unusual Mayan touches including reliefs and a stepped back style on upper floors to mimic a Mayan pyramid.

    This is the second version of this building, the old one is now unavailable. Textures and nightlights were improved.

  9. Alighieri Apartments

    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
    Occupant Group:     Medium Wealth Residential Building

    ---------------------------------------
    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. (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) 
    ---------------------------------------
    DEPENDENCIES:
    This file requires no external dependencies.
    ---------------------------------------
    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.

  12. Standard Federal Savings and Loan

    Standard Federal Savings and Loan, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    A classic mid-century cantilevered building, this dual towered mid-rise is inspired by old architectural drawings from the 1960s.
    The bulk of this building is fictional (eg, forecourt, entrance foyer and underground parking), but the external metal skeleton, 'eau-de-Nil' colour scheme of the wall panels and massings are true to the original. 
    The building comes in four easily growable lots: two growable high-wealth Commercial Office lots (3x4 and 4x4) and two high-wealth Commercial Services Lots (4x3 and 4x4...there is always an insatiable need for CS§§§ in game). Use the CTRL key while zoning to enable ease of development.
    These mid-rises grow on all tilesets.

    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.

  14. ING Direct

    ING Direct, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    A high wealth, 14 storey office (CO§§§) typical of the 1990s style, it is inspired by an office in Sydney. It has typical features of the late 1990s: polished stone veneer feature cladding over concrete pre-cast walls; double height, off-set colonnaded forecourt; a curved central window feature and arched entrance-way; mixed materials and a small balcony for the executive offices.
    It is offered as a growable lot as a 3x2 and 3x3. It grows on all tilesets on medium and high density lots. 
    Having reasonably similar statistics to the ingame Hourvitz Accounting, Ajjanagadde Inc, Goldman Building and Walton Plaza, it should offer some competition for these Maxis buildings.

  16. Kensington Apartments

    Kensington Apartments, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    A fictional development, based on a new build in London's West End, Kensington apartments was created to compete with some of the mid-rise R§§§ aprtment complexes which can become quite repetitive in game. The single versions have stats similar to the in-game 'Packard Apartments' and should compete fairly well with this, and similarly-sized Maxis buildings.
    Like many of the newer London developments, this design is fairly straightforward: double storey entrance lobby (and ground floor flats each with a fenced off outdoor area) and then double storey sub-penthouse and penthouse levels. 
    The building is twelve stories tall. 
    As is often typical in inner-city developments, none of the apartments has particularly large balconies: traffic noise usually makes these less than inviting spaces. Floor to ceiling triple-glazed windows on all sides of the building more than adequately make up for this lack of terrace space.
    The communal planting includes a mix of deciduous trees and conifers; the larger lots have both a heated indoor pool and tennis court for the exclusive use of the residents. 
    These apartments are presented in 6 lot options: a 2x1, a 2x2, a 2x3, a 4x4, a 5x5 and a 6x6 lot. They grow on all tilesets and all have varying stats depending on the lot size.
    These are a good mid-rise, high wealth, medium density filler lots for your cities.
    ---------------------------------------
    STATS R§§§:

  17. Gertrude Apartments

    Gertrude Apartments, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    A fictional development, based on a new build in the San Francisco, CA area, Gertrude apartments was created to compete with some of the mid-rise R§§§ apartment complexes which can become quite repetitive in game.
    This apartment building uses a series of massings and elevations to provide abundant natural light and cross ventilation to each of the generously sized apartments. This design also ensures that most terraces are private and that all but one is overlooked from neighbouring flats.
    This apartment building is 8 floors high (excluding the mechanical penthouse area). The lower floors contain a number of 2 & 3 bedroom + 2 bathroom apartments, while the upper floors are reserved for spacious 3-4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom apartments. 
    The 7th and 8th floor has only one 'sky home' with a spacious, private sun terrace and generous planter boxes.
    The communal grounds planting is of low maintenance conifers on well-lit, compact grounds making these lots a great option in all density areas. 
    The apartments are presented in two paint schemes: a deep, coffee colored scheme which looks great in dense, urban areas and a paler blue/green scheme inspired by the coast. Both are in prop families and will grow at random.
    These apartments are presented in 5 lot options: a 4x4, a 3x4, a 4x3, a 4x2 and a 2x4 lot. They grow on all tilesets and all have the same stats.
    These are a good mid-rise, high wealth, medium density filler lots for your cities.

  19. Torre Ejecutiva Pemex

    The Pemex Executive Tower (Spanish: Torre Ejecutiva Pemex) is a skyscraper in Mexico City. The 214 meter (211 meters to top floor) international style tower was built between 1976 and 1982. Since the building's opening, it has been occupied by state-owned Pemex, one of the largest petroleum companies in the world.
    The Torre Ejecutiva Pemex originally proposed to replace two 14-story towers built between 1967 and 1970. Later, these buildings were replaced by a pair of 26-story towers to house Pemex's administrative offices. However, the 1980s oil boom demanded office space growth and Pemex decided to build a single 52-story tower in a downtown lot with a huge plaza covering an underground avenue. The building is anchored to the ground, rests on 164 concrete and steel piles that penetrate to a depth of 35 meters surpassing the old filling swampy lake to reach firmer ground. In addition, its x-braced structure features 90 shock-absorbers to minimize oscillations from earthquakes. The tower was completed in 1982, but the surrounding plaza was never completed.
    The Torre Ejecutiva Pemex remained the tallest building in Mexico for almost 20 years,[1] until August 2003, when the 55-story Torre Mayor was completed only half a mile away. Currently, the Torre Pemex is the third tallest building in Mexico, and the second tallest in Mexico City. The tower is currently occupied by approximately 7,000 Pemex employees.
    On 19 September 1985, the tower withstood a magnitude 8.1 earthquake, as well as other strong earthquakes that commonly strike Mexico City. The building was designed to withstand an earthquake of 8.5 on the Richter scale.

  20. Houston Place Apartments

    Houston Place Apartments, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    Inspired by the sorts of developments springing up not only across Texas, but in many parts of the world, Houston Place apartments is a fictional apartment building that I created to compete with some of the mid-rise R§§§ apartment complexes which can become quite repetitive in game.
    These sorts of apartments capitalise on the current architectural trends occurring in the South of the US: boxy, heavy-set buildings that utilise the trend of mixed materials: rubble-stone wall cladding, brick, steel and glass.
    Despite the assertive (albeit eclectic) use of mixed materials, they are neo-classical in style and quite conservative in the appearance of their street-scape and massing and are targeted at higher-end buyers.
    This apartment building is 8 floors high (including the roof-top recreation area and pool). The lower floors contain a number of 1 & 2 bedroom + 2 bathroom apartments, while the middle & upper floors are reserved for spacious 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom apartments.
    The 7th floor has only two 4 bedroom + study, 5 bathroom 'sky homes' with wrap around terraces and floor to ceiling panoramic windows.
    The communal grounds planting showcases evergreens all on well-lit, compact grounds making these lots as good in all density areas.
    These apartments are presented in 4 options: a 3x4, a 4x3, a 4x4 and an 8x4 lot. The 8x4 lot may take some time to grow (the game has a tendency to break these lots up) but holding the CTRL key while zoning will assist growth chances. They grow on all tilesets.
    These are a good mid-rise, high wealth, medium density filler lots for your cities.

  21. Old North Church Boston

    Old North Church, Boston, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    Built in 1723, this is the oldest church in Boston and is famous for having been the church from which Paul Revere received his illuminated signals ("one if by land, and two if by sea") prior to his midnight ride to warn Lexington and Concord during the American Revolution.
    The church is a national historic landmark and a mission of the Episcopalians.
    This building is modded as a non-conditional House of Worship reward (meaning it can be placed in your city at any time without having met prior conditions).
    It does not over-write the Maxis House of Worship rewards and can safely be used in conjunction with these (or any relotted version thereof).
    Placing this Reward provides R§§ CAP relief, has a park effect, boosts the mayor rating and also provides up to 17 highly desirable civic jobs.
    It is on a 3x3 lot.

  22. Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco

    Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    Inspired by the recent SC3000 uploads, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), San Francisco is a non-profit organisation and holds an internationally recognised collection of modern and contemporary art, and was the first museum on the US West Coast devoted solely to 20th Century art.
    The present building was designed by Mario Botta in the late 1980s and the building - as depicted here in SC4 - was completed in 1995.
    It was recently given a large extension in 2009, but I have not modelled that part of the building.
    This building acts as a Museum and sits on a 4x4 lot providing 315 highly desirable civic jobs and gives a large educational boost across a wide radius.
    It is found in the Education Menu.

  23. Millennium Hotel Knightsbridge

    Millennium Hotel Knightsbridge, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    If you've recently downloaded Harrods http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/31736-harrods/ you may be wanting some additional UK themed Bats to fill the surrounding area.
    Fear not; over on nearby Sloane Street, a brutalist monstrosity caught my eye, and so I have brought this into game.
    When I look at a building from Google Street View, if at a street level it piques my interest, then I'll usually look at it from either Google Earth or Bing to get a better feel for the model.
    It is at this point that I will determine whether I will do a recreation, or adopt a looser approach. Either way, there will always be elements of each building I look at that in my opinion will stay or go when I recreate the building for SC4.
    Normally not too many elements of a building get turfed out: those that do are either aligned at an odd angle (rather than the SC4 grid), or are too awkward to be worth my effort. It is rare, however, that a building catches my eye on street level, for me to look at it from above and shake my head with a 'what were they thinking' moment.
    Millennium Hotel in Knightsbridge is one such building.
    It caught my eye because there are so few of these sorts of buildings in SC4; now I'll admit I am not a huge fan of brutalist early 1970's architecture: add the inclement British weather & city smog and you have hulking concrete structures that have gone from a light green-grey to the most dreary shade of dirty grey imaginable. But regardless of your opinion on Brutalism, you have to admit that it at least exudes authority and gravitas.
    So it came as some surprise when I saw all of the truly, truly "twee" additions visible from the air....now, with apologies to Mcmansionhell.com and other spoof websites, please see my take on what got the 'cut' from this Bat and why...
    **********************************************************************************************************************************************************************
     


     
     
     
    Hopefully my UK friends can get a bit of a laugh out of this: you have been through a fair bit in recent months. 
    Now that that's out of the way, the Millenium Hotel is offered as a growable CS§§ building on a 4x4 lot. It is a larger 14 story mid-rise building, which I have made my own adjustments to. It grows on all tilesets and provides 960 CS§§ jobs.

  24. Harrods

    Harrods, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    Inspired by the iconic department store on Brompton Rd, Knightsbridge, Harrods is presented as a CS§§§ growable and ploppable lot for your cities.
    Please be aware that the present day Harrods has been extended and remodelled a number of times since the main building on Brompton Rd was completed in 1905, so this is NOT a strict recreation, but what I present is faithful to the original façade as designed by Charles Stephens, albeit with modifications to make it more game-ready.
    I have only modelled the front portion of the building.
    It must be noted that the present building has completely over-run the old streets of 'Queens Gardens' and 'New Place' and wrapped its way around what used to be known as Queen Street and Lower North St (since renamed Hans Rd and Basil St respectively), consuming the old Hans Mansion block and other buildings in the process.
    Because these streets run at odd angles and curves, even with the FAR roads and other NAM advances, I felt that modelling all of this would make the building almost completely unusable for the average player.
    Additionally the original building, aligned to Brompton Rd, was slightly wedged shaped - the old line is still somewhat visible under all of the present day roof additions from Google earth along the Hans Rd façade. Naturally I have squared this off to get this into game, which means that the rear of the building is completely fictitious.
    The present roof junk and extension of the Mansard roof along all facades is modelled - with slight variations by me - on the most up-to-date renovations: you can compare the differences by using the Google earth program (up-to-date) vs. Bing ?birds-eye/Google maps (out-of-date) to see the remarkable difference to the roof-top in recent years.
    Lastly, in order to fit the building on a maximum of 8 tiles (which will give it at least some chance of growing), I have removed one set of windows near the turret. Given the lag on my computer, I have also avoided modelling the hundreds of bulbs on the Hans Cres and Hans Roads sides.
    With all of that said, if you are strictly puritanical about recreations being 100% accurate, then please do not download this.
    The lot comes in two flavours: a growable Commercial Services and a ploppable, functional C§§§ lot, which is found in the Landmarks Menu. Both have the same stats.
