San Lorenzo's waterfront

Sign in to follow this  



So... this is probably, maybe the last update I'll do on the city of San Lorenzo for now. I've been spending too much time trying to mess around with the city so I feel like maybe I need to take a break from it. :P For my next updates I'll probably either show rural areas or Shaston City.

I like to think of San Lorenzo as a little bit of Seattle and San Francisco with New York brownstones. However, it is also a unique city.


The waterfront near downtown is one of the city's most charming features. It features a boat dock, marina, and various entertainment venues and activities.


In the 1930s until the end of World War II, the area was a ship-building port that constructed naval and civilian ships. After the war ended, the area was mostly abandoned until it was redeveloped.



Here's just a scene from Washington Carver Avenue that splits through downtown.


Nearby is the city's most famous building, the Emerald Tower, built in the 40s, and was the tallest building on the West coast until the Space Needle was built in Seattle in 1961.


Thanks for reading!

Those are some jaw dropping changes to your city. I love the additions to your skyline and the waterfront. That new boardwalk must be a joy to walk down. :thumb: You should show some of your suburbs if you want also. Oh and by the way, where did you get that new blue glass building that looks as tall as the New York one?
