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. 

In game it is offered as an R§§ apartment.

The apartments are mostly 1 bedroom, but with wide curtain glass windows feel spacious and airy. The ground floor and lower ground floors are reserved for shops and gallery spaces. Secure underground parking and a pool complete the ammenities for all the residents.

These apartments are presented in 2 options: a 4x2 and a 4x3 lot.


---------------------------------------

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.

---------------------------------------

NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:

As these models contain garaged underground parking, the lots do not come with parking textures. If you wish to add acres of parking or change the concrete textures, please use the lot editor to do so.

---------------------------------------

DEPENDENCIES:

This lot requires no external dependencies.

To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.

@sejr99999 Before I read your review just wrote almost the same at SC4D :D:D

"Oh man! :)
It's really amazing. Now I see, that one of my next cities will be based on you lots, well I'm already using pretty much your stuff everywhere in my cities, but what I'm talking about is a nearly full MattB325's stuff city. ;)

Thank you your work on these gems! :)"

Well, I can quote myself, because it fits here nicely! :)

I love that mid-century look, that you cannot be sure if the building is social housing or a luxury condo. It's an instant download (no, seriously, I'm writing this on the phone while turning up the computer)!

Thank you  I will have to build a city using only your creations   I think you have made everything needed for a functional and 

attractive city and I really like this newest apartment building with its underground parking, rooftop pool and unique balconies

also the nightlighting shows a lot of attention to recreating a realistic nighttime appearance

Fantastic building! As always the details give this building life.  I especially like the entrance to the unground parking.  Nice touch!  Well done.

Really great!  You do such a good job of filling in the middle sized residential and commercial buildings so sorely missing from the game.
