housewares department with glassware and golden plates for special occasions, and then
it’s up to the top floor for the toy department (complete with toy house and push-scooter)

Thank you very much for this information, legomilk! :classic:

With "corner house" surely a CC styled building is meant, don't you think? Plus in 2007 and 2008 there was always a CC styled building released around March.

So another CC styled building - I'm not interested in them. :sadnew:

Thanks for sharing this great news legomilk.

Very cool news.  Thanks!  The list of sets I am waiting for seems to be getting longer and longer.  A new corner CC style building will be high up on my list.

Thanks for this amazing news, legomilk! :wub:

It will be great to have another corner building to round out the street :thumbup: And I'm glad after Fire Brigade we're going back to a civilian setting with a large shopping centre. Grey and yellow with black windows seems like an interesting combination, but we'll see how this pans out.

March 2010 would put it back in the original release slot for the first 2 buildings, which is not too long to wait at all!

Thanks again!

Thanks for the update. Few things I like as much as a new Modular house, and a corner no less!

I've moved this to Trains & Town, since it fits with the discussion of all the other modular buildings.

Continue to wildly speculate here! :tongue:

Thanks LegoMilk!!  :sweet:

Well this sounds very nice. However I like the modular buildings but I don't buy them.
I was hoping maybe this was the TRU Exclusive but it isn't if it is only available in the LEGO Store.

I wish the upcoming modular building will offer both in-depth and beautiful architecture design similar to Café Corner standards, and having detailed interiors such as Green Grocer. When both design considerations are taken play, we will be able to play this in modular style merging it at the end of the street, taking it level by level.

I wish TLG could start installing chandeliers inside their buildings, so Draggy and TinyPiesRUs won’t have to use “those” to smash my head.

Woo-hoo!  Exclusive Modular money-sinks live on!

A big corner store, huh?  Sounds nice.  Not sure I can picture the colors, but we'll see.  Let's see if I'd rather wait out 5 months to get this set over Fire Brigade.

Great news for those of us collecting the modulars!  Thnaks for sharing the information.

ILikePi: I said this initially, then finally broke down and purchased Cafe Corner.  After you build one of these fantastic sets, you'll want the others as each is better than the next (in my opinion). I can't wait for another.  

It sounds interesting that one is a corner house to cap off the end of the block.  I may be thinking way too far ahead, but what next after the street ends.  Sets in between or perhaps another street?  I'm wondering.

I'm not sure what you mean in regard to 10182 & 10211 corner house.

10182 is Cafe Corner?

Is there also a new Corner House?
