 Thank you for your comment, dimilpol006!

 
Today I present the city of Riverbend! It is located on the Noroldo River in Ithsmus Province. It is home to about 220,000 sims, 110,000 commercial jobs, and a fair number of high tech jobs. It is considered one of the best places to live in Andracia.
 
Location:

I have separated the city into various neighborhoods, based on their makeup:

AlDa:

AlDa is on the southern end of the main city, and is home to the city's train terminal, as well as one of Andracia's largest comanies, Andracisoft (Simon & Frank Associates)
 
The highway bridge is one of the most majestic in Andracia, foering spectacular views of the skyline:

The building that ignited the gentrification of the slums in South Riverbend, a tall office building on Central Avenue (to the left of the building):

Some of the most expensive apartments in the city can be found here
 
St. Ignotus' Cathedral, the largest church in Andracia (and one of the few) can be found right on Central Avenue:

The cathedral is located very close to the south CBD:

Chelsea, the oldest wealthy district in the city, at almost 130 years old, is home to a bourgeois bohemian populace, and is to the west of the north CBD:

The convention center, located in South Riverbend, is surrounded by a wall of high rises, and borders Central Ave:

The Ferry district was the first part of the city founded, and is named after the first thing built in the city, which is now 200 years old:

The ferry district skyline is the skyline usually shown on postcards of the city, though it is only a fraction of the entire thing.
 
Kensington is to the southwest of the north CBD, and is home to many tall condominiums, as well as some businesses:

Central Avenue is a wide avenue with pathways down the middle. It goes from the University area to the AlDa area. This part is where it turns toward the North CBD:

Mullenham is a new wealthy district to the west of North CBD:

Roosevelt is the district that is separated from the rest by the Noroldo River. It is home to some high tech companies, the city's nuclear power plants, and some people:

South Riverbend has grown over the last 75 years from a total ghetto hellhole into the glamorous, ritzy southern business district, this change being fueled mostly by the construction of the Canary Center. Central Avenue bisects the heart of the city, and runs through the famous Athabaska Plaza. It is my favorite district, and is my first CBD to really have charachter.

Athabaska plaza is next to Benthall Center, and the Horizon Bank(Bank of America Charlotte) building.
 
Athabaska Square, up close:
 square.jpg
Here Central Avenue jags over one tile, accomadating Big Bry.
 
Here is the small district of Terminal, home to one condo building and the cruise terminal:
 terminal.jpg
The bounds of the district are at the road and the street behind the condo building.
 
Riverbend University is easily the most prestigious institution in Andracia, comperable to MIT or Harvard. A CBD has grown up around it in the last 125 years:
 University.jpg
Seen in the bottom Left is the small district of University square, and in the upper left is the Central district.
 
Unity/Midtown
The unity/midtown area is centered around the Unity center (Columbia center)

The Rock, offering great views from any window!

Wow, great looking region, and good job on the city. Good mix on custom and game content.

One word of advice from me, put a bit more work on your shorlines, making them level with the rest of the city and possible plopping down seawalls. Check other CJ's for reference.

Overal, nice work!
