Update Synopsis:

Back into Windemere for the first time since the relaunch, we are in the Town of Eastburg. Eastburg has been undergoing both redevelopment in its downtown district and in conjunction with nearby greenfield development, the town has grown dramatically. Today we are going to take a look at some completed projects and projects that have recently begun. Shall we?

44.1 | Phase 1 of a development which will occupy most of the remaining greenfield development space in the town has recently been completed. Progress was shown quite a few updates ago. Condominiums line a busy throughfare and the main street through downtown. A selection of 3 buildings sites were developed with a different model, all of which look over a park.

44.2 | This is a closer view of the 3 buildings looking over the park. They were some of the fastest selling units when they were offered for sale by the developer.

44.3 | Here we see the single-family homes side of the development. These houses sit on very small lots and are very close to one-another. Residents who live near the development don't approve, however it is a necessary evil. Housing prices continue to rise in Eastburg - with these small lot homes selling for $350,000.

44.4 | The elementary school that was built to serve the new development and surrounding area was recently completed, also featuring a large playing field.

44.5 | A large grocery store was recently completed as part of the development. The only grocery store in Eastburg a while back as the land was redeveloped into offices and proposed residential buildings. This supermarket fills a void that greatly needed to be filled. Even now the supermarket has an advantage in that it is the only supermarket in a town of nearly 40,000.

44.6 | Phase 2 of the large development is now beginning construction. Some streets have always been paved, while others have just begun construction. This phase will be single mostly single-family homes.

44.7 | This condo building was recently developed as part of the wave of downtown redevelopments. Although sitting on land of the development, it is not actually part of it. The developer sold the land to Windemere Land Corportation who built this tower.

44.8 | This is perhaps the project which will vastly shift the image of Downtown Eastburg. A whole block was purchased and demolished. A new large office tower will be constructed in its place.

44.9 | And to wrap up this update, a birds-eye view of the area we viewed today in this update.

Nicely done...if you're going for a European style i would suggest the euro-road mod. The double yellow line is distinctly American.

Glad you like the suburbs. You will have to wait for the building for a bit. :)

They certainly don't stay the same for long... ;)

Thanks for the advice. I am not going for a specific style, however it is more Canadian and/or American leaning. (well, usually anyways. :P)
