So many time ago that I didn't do a new updtae of this CJ. I'm too busy, this is reflexed too in The Times of Troix. But finally I give myself a little time to do a new update, the future is incertain.

It was the year 1939, the civil war of Valles Marineris finished 7 years ago. Engler is still in ruins, but for this city to reborn from the ashes were not hard, always had commerce and activity. Being the pass and an important port is an advantage. In this year, the proposal to build the first skycrapper appeared in the desk of the mayor Allan Otesanek. In that time the project was a madness, but the Engler Shipping Co really wanted to build it. In 1940 started the groundbreaking and the skycrapper started to raise to the sky. In 1943 finished. And there is: The Turmen Tower complex is the first skycrapper of Engler with 109 metters of height. Is the headquarters of the Engler Shipping Co and is a symbol of progress. After this, there appeared more projects and more ideas. Engler started with the skyscrapering in Valles Marineris.

Then in less than 50 years the view of Engler from the cannal changed a lot. It is really unnecesary the lighthouses around the ports: the skycrapers are like lighthouses in the horizon. Then all the cities in Valles Marineris started to build skycrapers. In this pictures: the Builder Plaza and the headquarters of the Engler Television.

The boom of the construction in Engler required new laws and legislations. One of this points is the ordered trace of streets, roads and avenues, the correct spacing between skycrappers and the presservation of green areas.

Sometimes the architects doesn't have imagination, and build twins and triplets of skycrapers. Skycrapering is a good business. But this happens when the thirst of money wins over the creativity and art, because after all the skycrapers are an interesting expression of art.

The Nadrem Tower, one of the most famous skycrapers in Engler. Its design try to combine the future in the present because now is the future, or at the least is what it says his architect.

Wir sind die Nacht. This is The Abstrauct, one of the most exclusive nightclubs in Engler and it is over the Nadrem Tower. It have one of the most spectacular views of Engler.

The views to the south of Engler are unique. To see the small residential buildings is beautifull, and to see the skyline from the south are amazing.

The construction of skycrapers in Engler continues, now the eyes of the investors are in the south, but with small buildings and amicable designs for the enviroment.

Well this is all for now. Stay tuned for the next update: skycrapers and buildings are not the jewels of Engler. See you later!
