Nothing spectacular in this update. Just the bread-and-butter stuff, what Rankine is genuinely made of: Wall-to-Walls.


Wall-to-Walls are a very typical kind of building in the New York City area, very specially in Manhattan, where everything is so tighlty packed that the only way of growing was... going up. During the years, Rankine has seen other buildings replacing Wall-to-Walls, but they keep being the most popular buildings here.


This kind of buildings give a great flexibility to constructors. They can be built virtually anywhere, besides anything, and in small lots. Metro-North tracks can be laid between the buildings and nobody (except its dwellers) will complain.



One of Rankine's police precincts was built in a Wall-to-Wall fashion only a few years ago. A very optimistic architect thought that a modern and dynamic bulding would revive this part of North Rankine but he clearly failed. This city would need a dozen of precincts like this one to be under control.

Nice pictures mate!
In too many cities the high tension pylons are too much expensive to remove, I like the way You use them! A good inspiration as always!

I love it. The new building actually fits well here - but I don't expect it to lead to gentrification/renewal any time soon!
