Hello again,

This is my big project that I started August of last year.  It was photo-ready by January but then I had to move to a new house.

This is about 90% complete because some rooms are still bare, though I will update this thread once I get around to finishing it.

Featuring cameos from the Grand Tourer, Yellow city car, and the Small SUV.

Here are some of the pics!

That is absolutely stunning, wooootles! The interior is great, and the facades are brilliant. Well done, and thanks for sharing!

Great architecture and then all those details. This is simply fantastic!

Edit: Can't wait to see the interior of the last flats.

Great condominiums, wooootles! :thumbup: I especially like your use of flat tiles on the front of the condos, it really gives it a "brick" look.

Thanks for the comments, all!

I'm already working on the complementary project for this.

With all the tiled floors and tiled walls I think there's about 3000 pieces here on tiles and SNOT headlight bricks alone  :laugh:

I have to join the others in praising this MOC. It's very well executed, from the general architectural design down to all the lovely interior details. I like that very realistic open kitchen solution with the bar counter, and the widescreen TV.

I don't know if that was intentional, but the contrast level is a bit low on the images. In the case of the main image, it actually turned out very nice, giving the impression of a misty morning in Midtown :)

Excellent work wooootles! Simply an outstanding modular condominium, I love the conservatively beautiful external architectural design as well as the highly-detailed interiors. :thumbup:

Thanks all!

I too noticed the some of the shots have that foggy morning look, but I did use natural sunlight (taken in the afternoon) so whatever the effects are, I think it looked good anyway  :laugh:

I tried to keep the architectural style modern but not too stylized like Cafe Corner  :classic: The design was loosely based on some of the upscale condominiums in California.

Great apartment building wooootles. I really like the architectural style you employed with alternating plastered and brick walls. It really creates variety on such a big structure. The interiors are also very creative.

Hehe, now that I'm looking at it I did use a whole bunch of tan bricks and dark red tiles and windows that Grand Emp. and Fire Brigade used alot!  But no, I used none of those.  This was about 60% Bricklink (multiple stores at that), 20% PaB wall exploits, and about 20% CREATOR 6754 (3 sets).  That's my rough estimate of my sources

Really nice. I like the contrast very much. I am trying as building right now as my first big project upon returning to LEGO. It isn't going to be that big though, but I am looking for ideas for the interior so thanks for the inspiration.

What a beatiful street! :sweet: This looks like it could be taken right out of a real city street. The facades are excellent, with the SNOT-tiling mixing in lovely with the rest. The interior is also really nicely done. Great job on this :thumbup:.
