Eastern Suburbs Part 1

Sign in to follow this  


The Eastern Suburbs spread out east from the CBD towards YROO and the Old Rooley Range. The newest area of suburbs contain many new medium wealth residences to accommodate our qualified workers which most of the city and the market is powered by. Many shops, lesiure spots, parks, plazas and offices are all located within the suburbs.

Part 1

This entry, Part 1 of the eastern suburbs, will showcase four suburbs on the western side of the eastern suburbs. The other suburbs on the other side are still in construction and once completed, will be showcased in Part 2 which should be the very next entry in the journal. The four suburbs are: Greenwood East, Stanworth, Chanley and Larden.


Greenwood East

Greenwood East is named after and just across the Kanga River from Greenwood (see Roleyson CBD entry for more). It contains the Greenwood East Apartment Complex of three high density medium wealth high rises surrounded by parks and medium density low wealth buildings, of which some contain shops underneath. A skate park is also beside the apartment complex as well. Greenwood East Park is also located within the area, surrounded by medium wealth residences. Jim Gann Park is a small park located next to some of the medium wealth residences and low wealth buildings.

Stanworth is a central hub for the eastern suburbs, with many leisure spots, including parks, plazas, shops and other places. It also contains a few medium density offices as well as many low density medium wealth residences, and a few medium density towers by the river. Stanworth State High School is also located in this area, just across from Stanworth Park and the water tower. A swimming pool is also located next to the school. On the other side of the suburb, there is the Rooleyson Ford Dealership, just across from the construction site of Stanworth Shopping Centre, which will be the biggest shopping centre in Rooleyson to date. The Stanworth Robert & William Cinema is already complete, right next to the site of the shopping centre. The medium density offices also surround this area, as well as a few other shops. An update on the shopping centre will be in next month's city update.

Chanley is a suburb just to the north of Greenwood East. It is made of mostly medium wealth houses and a few shops within the area. There are also some low density offices located around the shops as well, along the main roads.

Larden is located just north of Chanley. It covers the biggest area of the four suburbs of this entry. Within the suburb, there are several medium wealth houses, as well as some shops and offices, along the main roads and within the suburban neighbourhoods.

 Ok, for some answers...

@ Un1 - I do provide overviews in the monthly updates, but that won't be for a few weeks still. But yeah, I'll probably do that after the completion of Part 2 of the southern suburbs.

@ CWLGamer01 - I'm not on the Planet Offer. I can't afford it and I prefer to play single player.

Thanks for both of your comments as well.:)
