Mitte environs

My next goal was to build a couple of towns adjacent to Mitte, each connected by rail with a village on the outskirts of Mitte itself, to help drive a functional layout for Mitte itself. The first adjacent town was to the north-northwest, which I named Reinckendorf. I decided to make this a farm-heavy city. I may later develop to the State Fair and revamp it as a kind of amusement park area. This connected to an existing village in Mitte.

Next was the town to the north-northeast, which I named Heilersdorf. This I structure as a more linear town stretching out along the rail line. The line will later continue along a series of lakes to the north.

I connected this to a new village in Mitte, which I envisioned as a lower-rent industrial district. Planning the village to come next I realized they'd merge and so I did them both together. I did this village with a tight grid, different from what I've been doing.

To the east-northeast there was a nearby lake so I designed the town here, Biesdorf, with the idea of later developing large residential buildings on the cliffs. I added industrial zones going out on the rail as my industrial demand was starting to get high. I powered this with windmills only to get a green town feel.

Finally I added Kopenick to the east-southeast. I decided to use this as the regional dump but I went ahead and added two villages along a rail line heading just inland from the river. The first village nearer to Mitte was intended as the nicer section of town. I put in some diagonals for variety but building around them resulted in a real traffic mess. At present it doesn't matter but later I may have to do some serious redevelopment.

The second village is more industrial and may end up bordering the landfill eventually.

I added a village in Mitte connected to Kopenick by rail and let Mitte run for a while. At the end the region around Mitte looked like this.

Next will be to start on a center for Mitte.
