This city has got some serious potential, the motorway, train and grid layout are great, the streets are going to create some really interesting buildings and vistas to go along with them.

I really like the fact you've got some mid rise buildings already there, it's going to produce realistic densities, as already demonstrated by putting the Western Bank building behind them, you get different different layers of reference.

I hope to see more soon!

P.S. what city, if any, are you basing this one on? I ask because looking at it I immediately thought of Boston, but I'm probably well of the mark.

Actually, your 100% right! (however it's only the lowrises that will be based off Boston)

and thanks for the comments

This looks very promising. The monorial and the layout are both superb. Please stay with this one, being that I'm already looking foward to the next update. Excellent start!

if the monorail was a train and it wasnt so watery,you could throw in some huongus solid glass lopsided boxes and you got Fort Worth!!

looks great!

I asked the same thing too. If you start the city with just a grid then you have more updates. But if you start a city with already developed areas then the city becomes more realistic and you can add on to what's already there.

I think I'm gonna start with a grid on my city because I can have more updates.

You should too but there will be a time when the city size and details will make your computer lag.

Another Boston-like apartment

More Boston-styled apartments

Wow, the last picture looks awesome. The angles are the buildings were just perfect for this picture. The windows on the second picture are a little small for the building but the CMSN Building looks nice and realistic.

And again, the last picture is awesome. I've always loved row-houses and most of the time when I model a house it's a row-house.

Very nice. I agree with Dac and Peter on the realism, and the skyline shot was nice.
