Downtown Expansion

Sign in to follow this  


With the great amount of newcomers to the city there's no surprise that downtown was due for an expansion.

One of the areas to be expanded, a perfect place being near the water and the Resort Hotel make it prime real eastate.

Another area to be expanded, just across the avenue.

A new airport was the first step in the process, providing long distance transportation to the rest of the world. (as you can see, some business has already moved in across the avenue)

The finished airport, just off the water. It is quite a nusiance, however, for the local golfers...

The city's first commercial shyscraper set the bar quite high, but it's influence was key to the expansion.

Soon the expansion erupted, cranes could be seen everywhere...

Some seafront construction on the southern end of the city.

Bell South moved their headquarters to Jerome, finding the city best suited for "The Bat Building"

Remember this old block from earlier?

...Well now it has become the most recognized part of downtown, not only housing three major skyscrapers but is also home to City Hall

Across the street is another collection of skyscrapers, particularly this beauty.

Just east is home to one of the cities tallest skyscrapers, and the convention center.

The City's second highest building stands firm on the southern waterfront, just across the street from the arena.

These twin buildings near the heart of downtown overlook the university campus. (I did not plop them, they grew that way!)

A distant shot of the southern downtown district...

The University of Jerome, smack dab in the center of downtown.

The Eastern District's expansion in full swing.

From this.....

To this in just under five short decades, the term "explosion" best suits the situation

The City reaches 85,000 people!
Thanks for viewing and thank you Simtropolis and all the BATers!
