Sign in to follow this  


Over the last Year There have been major changes in the town of Afton Lakes, the city has completed phase 1 of its original 3 phase construction and has begun on the Second phase of building, the city is now up to 200,000 Population and with this the city has decided to not only upgrade town hall, but to relocate it into the new construction area of the city.

With the completion of Phase 1 lets take a look at some of the current city

With Highway 55 rebuild in the Phase 1 area of the city now complete we can see here that there is still plenty of expansion opprotunity


Here is a shot of the River front Villas built at the end of Phase 1's construction


Two other shots of the finished phase 1 


Here we can see the city from the new 494 Bridge


Here we can see the new Intersection between the residental and office/high tech area of the south end of phase 1's area, just to the south is the Highway 55 Bridge crossing Dakota River and entering Phase 2's building area


The City has also welcomed its first elites to the city!


With this the city has become large enough that a small town to the south has developed providing the city with Many Industrial and Manufacturing goods, this city is known as Plainfield

Here we can see the start of the housing District



Here we can see the start of the heavy industry (right) and manufacturing (Left)


More Information on the Development of this Sub City to come as it matures, and yes as you can see due to the traffic there are 2 small ave's going into the industrial zone, and 1 leaving it

With the expansion into new land the city also breaks ground on its first commuter airport

Here we can see the start of construction in the phase 2 area, including the city's first airport


With the opening of the cities first airport the city also is great full to be the host of a new State Park next to the airport, it will provide nice views of city, has walkways and a small road down by the lake front and fountain in the middle


Park at night:


With the start of the more upscale part of the city the city console has decided to help being larger companies into the city by upgrading town hall, and also moving the city hall to a new location featuring a park and all city services near by


And last but not least the current road map of the city with traffic flow, you can see work has already started on what will become the Highway 55 and Interstate 694 intersection, expecting heavy traffic the city console elected to start off big with the possibilty of down sizing the interchange if zoning permits, they did not want to be as limited by highways size here as they will be with highway 55 and interstate 494
