No, I'll do one and three, but that's it because if I make all three I won't have space for my SUPER AWESOME MONORAIL!!!

No it's not
Just go for it and you'll get it, it's very satisfying when you're finished a really difficult tower

oh I know it's satisfying but I tried it 4 times and I can't get it. I'll try it again but I don't think I'll get it this time either.

I.D.K. But it's getting on my nerves. I'll try again. The screen freezes every time I try to import the towers.

Finally!!!

Due to the Huge amounts of magic fairy dust that fell over the city yesterday, the Hilton Towers were finished pretty fast. Many buildings started construction too. (Actually I got the buildings to import into my city and I don't want to risk it anymore)

Both towers are topped off but construction inside and the garden/pools are still in construction. Both Towers have 47 floors in total, 1 is mechanical/waiting room for helicopter at the top, 2 floors at the bottom include an inside pool, gym, restaurant, coffee shops, etc.., the rest 44 floors are residential for Tower 1 (the corner tower) and 44 floors are a hotel for Tower 2 (inside tower). There's also 8 underground floors of parking space and a concourse level in each tower connected to the subway.

Areal view of some of the buildings that started construction including the digging of the Dream Tower.


Phewww...

Oh, No, Please don't make me explain. It's easy but you have to see pictures to understand it. Well I'll explain how I make it like that but I'll post it later on today when I post more updates on my city.

Here's the last update I posted today. Since this is a new page I decided to post it in this page too.

Thanks Dac and rbowk. I want to build slowly and when I am mostly finished with this city I will probably start La Corte International Airport. The Olympia City was canceled because of lack of security and funds in Mexico City so the city La Corte will host the 2016 Olympic games instead of Mexico City hosting the 2012 games.
