Update 28: Nuclear Neighborhood.

Welcome back everyone! So is everyone enjoying the new site update? I'll admit; at first i was a little irked at a couple things (like the fact that my feature submissions from the last two weeks got lost in the electron shuffle ;) , which also means there might be some stuff you've missed if you're not a regular, so go hit that 'previous' button!) but now it's grown on me. However, since now it doesn't tell you that the images have been resized I have to tell you:

PLEASE CLICK IMAGES IF YOU WANT TO VIEW IN FULL RESOLUTION! ~Thanks.

And now we return you to your regularly scheduled update.

Previously on tRoF:

The canal marks a boundary between the industrial area and the compact residential area between the canal and the river.

1. At the south end of this zone is fangfish park, this time in fall colors:

2. There are still some old, small industrial warehouses around the cross-avenue:

3. Apartments pop up around the canal heading north.

4. The schools and civic square. On the bottom are apartments overlooking the river.

5. More residentials. These old homes used to be the closest to the river until the modern apartments popped up on questionable ground planning and zoning.

6. As the canal reaches the north tile border it encounters a small park, which spills over onto the other side.

7. The park in the green season, with the surrounding industrial buildings.

8. Browsing the industrial area. More transit lines.

9. An elevated station on the rail viaduct.

13. Jumping to the other side of the Highway, the view from some residentials overlooking the rail freight facilities.

14. Following the rail yards west, small shops line the avenue through the concrete landscape.

15. Another residential overlook, this time over some truck parking and hi-tech businesses.

@Benedict, Ten Trillion, 111222333444, avrelivs, NMUSpidey: Thanks to all you guys for your kind words. I hope another update that includes fukushima isn't overdoing it. :P

@NMUSpidey: That's why it's inland a bit, upriver. The petroleum facility I'm planning on building down by the river's mouth however....

First of all, beautiful and interesting pictures. I'm pretty sure I've driven on a real-world equivalent of that avenue splitter. It's cool.

Also, do I detect a hint of foreshadowing in your response there?
