This is my second experiment with apartments on The Sims 3 Late Night.

- 3 storey building
- Fenced yard with communal area and big garage for 4 cars
- 1 apartment for your sims
- 2 Doors to NPC-area (black)
- Decorative shops with fully functioning skill items

The Apartment:
- Entrancehall
- Kitchen and dining
- Bathroom
- Office
- Bar
- Laundry
- Livingroom
- 2 bedrooms
- 4 balconies

Public areas:
- Communal garden with bbq and play
- Small hang-out room with eating and tv
- Entrancehall + 2 hallways
- Band room
- Gym with toilet and bathroom
- A tiny toilet
- Shop for architecture and interior design
- Shop for sculpting
- Shop for Inventing
- Salon

Here are the floorplans of the apartment that your sims move in:

As this is such a big lot with many many details, I uploaded additional pictures to Photobucket. If you wish to see some sim view pictures of the lot before desiding if you want to download it, i suggest you check out the pictures there

CC used, not included:
Simple Column
by Funbruk
Axle Dining set
by Flabaliki
Cottage-, Arcan- and Classic curtains, all three sets used
by Frances at The Sims Design Avenue

Lot size and prize:
68696 Furnished
12504 Unfurnished

Game requirements:
Built with patch 6.0.81, you need same or higher
You need Base game, Ambitions and Late Night to use this lot.

I playtested this lot for quite a bit, to see how it works. In first 20 minutes there were about 20 npc-sims living in the black apartment. They used communal areas just like they would be in a communitylot, so I think I can say, it worked good

Additional Credits:
All the creators of CC I used
#create for feedback and place to be
Bakafox for constant support and feedback
Tom for the tissues (told you I was gonna credit you for those, didn't I?? ) and for keeping me sane.
Delphy for CUSTARD
HugeLunatic for making the mailbox and trash-shute buyable

Sorry If I forgot someone special, I showed this lot to so many persons while making it. Thanks for all who took part in the process by any way!!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thank you kindly! I'm so tired of high rise apartments. Not all Simmies are interested in the big city life you know!
