I thought it would be cool for all of us to share our renders of our fair cities. I may post it on the National Thread, but for now I would rather a thread that wouldn't get clogged up with Toronto related discussions. So what kind of stuff have people created? I will start with my first ever project.

Note: This is my first time using sketch-up so I am extremely slow. It has taken me two weeks to create this building. I have many frustrations, especially regarding the facade and its particular angles. It is currently unfinished. I will post more updated photo's later on.
I am also not an Architect, so if anyone is any tips, questions, concerns, problems that can be seen and remedies would be extremely helpful. Especially concerning regulations. ie. Fire escapes, Elevators, and Stairways. Also any concerns about support columns and their quantity, thickness, and location would be appreciated. Personally I think I overdid it on the supports and would like to remove some if it is possible.
