This is the City of Goulais River. We saw the eastern portion of the city last time but these are the main areas. It's home to 293,000 people. It has a small downtown but it's mainly a suburban commuting city. The city has a height limit of ten floors for commercial buildings except in the downtown area. There is only low density residential zoning allowed in the city except for the downtown area and around transit stations were the height limit is 16 floors.

Downtown Goulais River.

Well, after a decade of building Sim Cities with all kinds of awesome mods and add-ons, I can no longer get the game to start up. I'm going to update my drivers, but if that isn't the problem I will have to wait until I buy my next laptop--hopefully--in order to play again.

I already miss Sim City!

The city I've been working on lately focuses on the city of Newberry and southeast Sault Ste. Marie.

St. Mary's Narrows Golf and Country Club


The Narrows Marina


Whitefish Island Beach and Marina


Newberry Beach and Marina


Newberry Navy Port


Downtown Newberry












Newberry is home to 143,739 people and is the biggest city on Sugar Island. This is the narrows on the St. Mary's River between Whitefish Island and 1/2 Mile Island. The Sugar Island Ferry was the only way to access the Island at this point until the Narrows Bridge was completed in 1993. Newberry is mostly marshland in the southern portion of the city and is built around many small lakes. Below are overviews of Newberry, Sault Ste. Marie, and the narrows between Newberry and Sault Ste. Marie.

This is the region of Sault Ste. Marie that I've been working on for 3 years. Only have the city of Sault Ste.Marie left to do. I've outlined the city boundaries because most of them don't conform to the region grid. The first picture is reference to locate each city in the region.

This is the southwest part of the city of Sault Ste. Marie.
Sault College South Campus. Holds the nursing and engineering programs. This area used to be all midrise townhomes but was demolished to make way for the stadium, community centre, and parking for the venues.


Sherman Park


Highrise buildings along 3 Mile Road.


As we get closer to the downtown area, the built form becomes more dense.


Some overviews of southwest Sault Ste. Marie.
