Well it's a proposed 444 foot tall hotel called Aero Tower. The name Aero comes from air as you all know and was chosen as the name of the hotel because the air in La Corte is calm, clean, and smooth, so is the tower which will be the first LEED tower in La Corte.

The twin towers are the Hilton (one is hotel and ones is residential) so just call them the Hilton's or the sluts Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton. Two of a kind just like my towers. The building behind the Hilton's is the Ritz Carleton's La Corte

Thanks. I like your city too. You just need to practice a little bit more and you'll get it just right. Don't worry I'm sure that in a couple of days you will get a lot much better at Sketchup. Try to mess around and see what you can create (just not in your city) and if you like what you made just import it into your city.

How to make a twisting tower.

10 Steps you can follow to make a twisting tower.

1. Make a circle and connect 4 points to make a square.


2. Draw a line from one end of the square to another diagonally. Make a like as tall as you want your tower to be. Select the vertical line and divide it into 6.


3. Highlight the bottom section. Click on the Move/Copy button. Press the ctrl key and while holding it down click on the middle of the bottom section. You will see an identical copy of the first section. Move it to the first divide point up.


4. Repeat until there are 7 similar sections.


5.Delete the lines between the sections. Select the second section from the bottom and spin 15 degrees left or right. Select the third section and rotate the same direction as the first 30 degrees. Repeat with sections # 3-6 each time adding 15 degrees more than the last. (15, 30, 45, 60 etc.)

The top and bottom section should be the same.

6. Delete the circle parts and lines diagonal lines. It should look like this from the top.


7. Connect each of the 4 corners of all seven sections. You can connect left or right.


8. Connect sections heading the opposite way from the other lines.


9. Delete all faces from top to bottom. Should look like this.


10.Close the top and bottom section. Select the whole thing and smooth.

I'm working on them. Remember I'm making floor-by-floor so it's going to take a while to show updates. I'll post one in the next half our at most.

Well here are two more shots.
The first shows the Ritz which is now over 460 feet and has started the residential part of the tower. The small building with the two towers sticking out of it in the right end is the LCTV (La Corte Television) studios. Both towers at the sides will include antennas and at the top there will be an observation deck similar to the Gateway Arch except this arch is 700 feet tall at it's highest point.


The Dream Tower has started construction. The base is 83 feet tall and the lobby is 50 feet tall. There are 6 levels in the base, 3 are include a private gym, a private residential theater, indoor pool, and the other 3 are a mix of storage, security rooms, and other stuff which is not supposed to be released to the public. The exact height and floor count hasn't been released either but I have a feeling it will soon.

The road that turns into a tunnel under the Dream Tower is the Pacific Freeway and runs through the Harbor of the Angels. This will all make sense once I release a plan of the Ilse Margarita.

That's all for now but more will come soon...

Thanks to all, pretty soon I will add my penis looking monorail to the city. But I have to make the rail first. It's going to be a pretty weird looking rail.
