This is my second Google Sketchup City, the first one is also called Staunton, but looks very different.

Here is a link to the first Staunton
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=105381

The first Staunton was never actually finished, the city was not planned very well and had too much fixing to do. So I started fresh, a new Staunton City.

Staunton City is most likely located on the west coast, but will probably look like an east cost city since the city is going to have a New York Skyline look. Staunton's tallest building is the 83 floor high Galviston Enterprises World Headquarters Tower, followed by the 76 Floor Staunton International Building.

Downtown Staunton would either be on an Island or a penisnula of the mainland with a bridge connecting to a large island.

I'm not sure how long this model will last, maybe this model will go into the suburbs, or it would probably just be the downtown area.......

[[I made the textures]] so dont ask if I got them off a website :)

Here are the first shots of the Western Tip of Downtown,

Thanks :)

I've added a whole new section to the city consisting of 10 buildings, 6 of them probably above 40 floors. The New Section is called Staunton Square, it will be a Times Square themed area.

The two tallest buildings in the area are the Washington Tower and the Staunton Financial Center.

The Washington Tower is one of the most detailed buildings in the city, with its multiple setbacks. The Washington Tower is modeled by the American International Building in New York (I think I made it look too much like the real one) It is now the third tallest building in the city (if you count the spire)

The Staunton Financial Center is a large modern new glass tower. It is modeled after the Bloomberg Tower also in New York. The Staunton Financial Center is now the 7th tallest in the city.

I also textured two buildings in the main financial district, The art-deco styled 715 Jefferson Avenue, modeled after the 500 5th Avenue in New York and the Sleek Modern Staunton Stock Exchange.

is that staunton island from GTA 3

Staunton City is inspired by the Staunton Island in GTA 3, but the the whole city will be called Staunton and Downtown will be on a peninsula instead of and Island.

Here are some urban black and white shots of Downtown Staunton, I've textured 6 new buildings, 4 of those highrises.

The New Towers still need billboards, so the spaces are empty until I make some more billboards.

I'm working on a Times Square-like plaza in my own city too. Yours is amazing, Patrick. (Woah, that's my name too!)

Anyone have any ideas for brand logos to use for billboards?

Patrick
Jun 19, 2006, 7:54 AM
Thanks! Making Textures isnt that hard, Its very simple, just draw a part of a building that can pattern on paint then upload it. My Textures arent very complicated.

And foxmtbr (or Patrick :) ) Its also easy and kinda fun to make Billboards. Most of my Billboards have pictures of real cities with some corporate name on it. Here are a few.
http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/1818/ghj6tp.jpg

^Those made up corporate names are easy to think of like Jenkin's and Associates or Galviston Enterprises.

And some billboards are just made up stores and companies, that are simpler,
http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/1052/ghj9xw.jpg

^Those made up companies are basicly parodies of real company names like Lacy's (Macy's) HITtv (Mtv)

Another thing that helped me was Getty Images, a great stock photo website that has pictures of almost everything, this is where I got my business people pictures and Times Square Billboards.

New Major Updates

Staunton Point
The Staunton Point District is going to be like a Central Park, styled neighborhood. The District consists of mostly midrise 1920's buildings, I really like this area, the area really balences out the skyline from the ocean.
http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/6614/ghj2rk.jpg

Trenton District Towers
These Two towers have always been one of the tallest in the city, yet they where never textured even though they where one of the first buildings created. I finally textured them, they are both Residential Buildings and are called the Jefferson Towers and the Penthouse.
http://img58.imageshack.us/img58/7582/ghj3dc.jpg

Staunton Square
Well More like north of Staunton Square. The American International Building look alike has been moved, since it was always covered by the JC Summit Entertainment Building.

Before
http://img463.imageshack.us/img463/4126/ghj7ap.jpg

After
http://img459.imageshack.us/img459/7843/ghj3rq.jpg

The Morgenn Gleason World Headquarters has been created (name based off Morgen Stanley) which is based off the Morgen Stanley world Headquarters in New York.

Building on Right
http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/2893/ghj5pb.jpg

Also I added a Modern Arts Museum at the end of Staunton Square, a Skyscraper at this spot would ruin the skyline,

Backside

Frontside from Staunton Square
http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/7884/ghj5ra.jpg

I also added a few more buildings in Staunton Square, nothing special.

Koster & Associates Plaza
The Koster & Associates Plaza was the second building to be created after the Galviston Enterprises Building. But after a while the building has practiclly became invisible, behind all the taller buildings. This building uses textures from my diagram of 29-39 South Lasalle in Chicago. (also the small older building in the diagram was used to texture the City's second tallest building)
http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=7788&drawingID=40889

So I added a second twin tower hopefully this makes the buildings a little more visible. The original is supposed to be built in the 80's, the New tower started construction in 2004, and halted in early 2006 due to financial problems. The Tower is on-hold and has an unfinished top. But eventually should be finished

Staunton Square was really crowding up the skyline, I had to shortenen a few buildings.

Patrick
Jun 29, 2006, 9:01 AM
thanks! and yes those trees are from the 3d warehouse.

I made a map of downtown, it shows the different districts of the main Downtown Area. Each district has its own style,

Staunton Pointe: Upscale, Historical, 1920's Residential Buildings
Trenton: Upscale, Highrise, Clustered, Towering Condos
Plaza District: Open, Plazas, Gardens, Tallest Buildings
Staunton Square: Flashy, Viabrant, Exciting, Times Square

These districts are still in progress

Jefferson Heights: Not sure really, Upscale? or Industral?
Torrington: Basicly Almost like the Plaza District but nicer
Murray Park: Soho District Feel, Arts District Maybe?

I hope the map isnt too confusing :)

Staunton is not the best place to live. Crime runs the city, but over the years the city has improven, but during the mid 90's the city was full of crime, and financial problems which explains why there are so many buildings on hold. This also explains why the city always has a grey/dark look.

But the bad times are ending, I turned the sky into a light purple making the city have a more positive look.

Great place to live!...............now

And no, The Galviston Enterprises World Headquarters Tower will be the tallest for a long time :)

I made the building skins on Paint, then added effects on photoshop, just like my diagrams.

I also made the billboards for Staunton Square.

And You must have seen the other pages, but I'd be happy to show more pictures of Staunton Square soon, the place has sure changed, I just havent shown any new shots.

Thanks Guys!

I've made up my mind, Staunton is located on the East Coast, and is in New Jersey (What other state would it be in?)

These where my 3 choices

What about in Mass? It has too much of an east coast feel to be in North Carolina and California.

That map showed possible choices, and New Jersey One, what do you guys think? Massachusetts is to northernly for Staunton, New Jersey sounds right.

Here is a City Map.

New Jersey is definitely right. I chose California for mine.

Amazing!!! No one puts as much detail into their cities like you do Patrick. Just looking at Staunton Square and all the Billboards made me wish I wasn't too lazy, and had a better computer so I could create that in my city. but good work on your city.

And it looks like Staunton is pretty much where Atlantic City would be, or maybe a couple more miles down the Jersey Shore. You should add a couple of casinos and a beach around Buena Vista or El Santiago.

Thanks!! :)

And cool I forgot about Atlantic City, I'll defantly add Casinos to the Buena Vista Area, that will look cool. But I'll have to probably rename the area. But I have a long way to go before I start building there :)

Like Battery Park City In New York City, I'm building a master planned residential community. Callahan Park City, under the Staunton Harbor Bridge. Callahan Park City might have a World Financial Center nearby like New York City's Real World Financial Center.

Here is the Master Plan for (possible) Phase One: Callahan Pointe

Callahan Pointe Completion Picture Coming soon. But In the meantime here is a shot of the Staunton Harbor Bridge.

Callahan Pointe is complete, but I'll wait on showing the full project, but The Tallest Tower: Callahan Pointe - Callahan View Tower has the greatest views in the whole city, this expensive project is developed by Lloyd International.

You want this view? $41,700,000! and going up

If your lucky enough, you will get a private rooftop garden, for parties, or relaxation. The Chairman of Galviston Enterprises has his eye on this one :)

Project Shots soon :)
