Cool Staunton - A Google SketchUp City

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,

Without Textures


With Textures (so far only 4 buildings are textured )


more to come!

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.

The Two Towers to the right


Here is the latest shots of the city

No textures


Textured (ugh I need to make more textures)


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.

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 modern Staunton Square Executive Towers to the right....

Yes, almost every picture I touch from Staunton to Myspace I contrast the hell out of it

This picture was supposed to be much bigger, anyone know a place that hosts huge pictures?

I textured two more buildings, The N Hotels Staunton Square (based on the W Hotel Times Square) and the Millennium Entertainment World Headquarters Tower (based on the Conde Nast Building)

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

I guess its been kinda slow around here

I have been working on Staunton Square, I redid One Staunton Square, a building like One Times Square, a building coverd with billboards. I also deleted a Staunton Square building based on the Reuters Building at 3 Times Square in New York.

Here is a picture of the Site....
