I recently found myself unemployed and having to give up on my plans for building a modular city block, but I wanted to share my MOCs & WIPs with you guys. Unfortunately I've had to start selling a good bit of my collection on bricklink to make ends meet. My MOC/MOD of the Cafe Corner into a 6 story hotel was complete with the 2nd and 6th floors being of my own design and a ton of modding the rest. I was also working on a modular bank building (in light bluish gray) and a modular florist/nursery (in medium blue, dark blue, and tan).

Front (Hotel in the center, bank on the left and florist on the right):

Florist/nursery rear w/ greenhouse:

The florist building was coming along quite nice, the greenhouse had a detailed interior with plants, flowers, drains, and a hose. Most of the parts for the creation were from the Market Street set, I was bummed when I had to take it apart to complete the Market Street set to list on bricklink. Oh well, I hope to one day pick up building again when I'm in better financial standing, but for now I'm forced to take a break. Hope you guys enjoy the pics. :classic:

It looks lovely. It would look great in any city.

Sorry to hear about your situation. I wish you the best in getting going again.

Great design, by the way. It certainly looks more like a full-on hotel now!

I do hope things will get back to normal for you mate... Don't worry, life has a weird way of sorting itself out, so in the end everything's gotta be OK :]

Fortune cookie talk aside, this is a wonderful complex you had been working on there! I would have loved to see some pictures of the interior, especially the florist -- we're building one for the Community Build, so we'd gladly take a page out of your book :wink: , even though we're doing it on a much smaller scale.

Thanks for the compliments!!! :classic: I Hope to one day resume my dream of building a LEGO City when my finances improve, in the mean time maybe I can round up some pieces to build something for the Community Build.

I have a few ideas I had hoped to include in my city that I've never seen done in any LEGO layout, including some reality based buildings that I wanted for an entertainment district, like a Gentleman's Club, Adult Novelty Store, or Casino. Also had thought about a Comic Shop or Country Club/Golf Course. I'm throwing the ideas out there in case anyone else wants to take the idea and run with it.

It's a shame that you can't complete this, but thanks for sharing it with us anyway. It's quite inspirational. You've made me want to add a greenhouse to Brickington.
