1 - Airport Special District (Part 1)


Hello everybody and welcome to the Ray Islands!

In this post we will be exploring the Airport Special District, a suburb of Summerdale in this post.

For the sake of convenience I will be referring the Airport Special District as the District as that's easier to type.


Airport Special District stats:

(Current) Population: 20,094 sims

Major roads passing through: Freeway 1, Toll Freeway 14, Freeway 314, National Highways 45 and 10

Map / Overview:


Yeah, I have to admit that map was badly photoshopped...

On to the Journal!

First let's take a look at one of the island's biggest freeway interchanges, the Airport Interchange between Freeways 1 and 14.


(here is a version of the photo without signs) \/ click here



This massive interchange contains 3 levels, 7 ramps, and at its widest point a total of 14 lanes!

It was built to handle incoming traffic headed toward the future airport as well as commuters getting off and on Freeways 1 and 14, both major roads within the Greater Summerdale Area.


Another major attraction within the District is the Gateway Mall! Taking advantage of the District's very low commerce taxes, this large mall draws in a very large crowd from across the entire island. Along with a super regional shopping mall, within the surrounding areas many large chain stores have set up shop within the area such as Target, Home Depot, Ikea, and many more!

Here's a picture of the mall and its surrounding shopping centers.


If your wondering why there is a brown box in the middle of the Super Target shopping center, yeah I don't know either. (I have figured out the source of the problem but cannot fix it for some reason.)

Here is a more closer look at the transit center for the Gateway Mall area.


I'm going to leave you all with a picture of some of the more residential areas of the city.

Well that's it for today everyone!

Opinions on the city are GREATLY appreciated.

See you all later!
