Well Continuing on with the construction..... we have had several Developers engage in projects in Conjunction with the city... the largest being to the Sout-East. also a massive redevelopment of the Commericial Core has taken place.
South-East Kensington Estates by Hanburg Reality. Currnetly... the lots have yet to be sold but it is geting there and will provide homes to over 800 residents
This was the commericial core last update.. however i decided that it was just too... cramped and unnatractive so i decided to revise it. it also took away from possible residential development along the park.
well you can see how it all looks now with the commericial district being confined to a single 2 tile patch along a road... decent i think. though parking is not that good.
many more developments are taking place however including an extension of a rail line into town that had previously run just outside of Kensington borders
Archean Station lies just to the south of town and will be opened shortly to allow sims transit between Kensignton and surrounding areas
Another big thing that happened was the Bike trail along the park was extended and now runs thorught the entire city. This has been praised as the most enviromentally friendly and recreatioinally satisifying by many citezens. The Bike trail will be called the Kensington loop and is the spear head of a national program to get people out and active. it is the first of many like trails to wind thourgh out the city. the following pictures will show the trail snaking through Kensington.
and the trail concludes at the other side of the park. All in all the trail loops about 2 miles through town. The local high school is planning on using parts of it for their cross country course. which in case you were wondering.... the high school boys XC team is currently the league champs... congrats!
the Southside of town is currently rather barren... but things are looking good for the coming weeks.. many more things are scheduled to take place.
and there is a firehouse now in Kensington.... so we win
