Want a place to start out? Have kids but not a lot of money? Do your NPCs need a place to call home? Then look no further! This four-unit apartment complex contains three NPC units and one player unit that comes in under §17,000 - and that includes the family car! Two bedrooms, one bath, all appliances upgraded. The current unit for rent it Unit #2A upstairs, but if you prefer to live on the ground floor, Unit #1B has been fully furnished and can be accessed by swapping out the lot markers. (Each unit is furnished for a family of four plus infant/toddler.)

CC-free and Custard-checked, although items from some EPs and the Store are used. If you don't own the items listed below, the game will replace them with comparable items. (Check out the list to see what was used where. You still may be able to download even if you're missing some things.)

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.

I don't mind high-rises but they seem to lag a lot, so I don't play them too much!

Lovely, finally an apartment building that looks like an apartment building. I will make a complex out of many of these.

Very nice! Love the efficient floor plan and just how "apartment-y" it looks!

I LOVE this apartment! I'm having problems using the mailboxes though--my sim gets all frustrated and says that something is blocking her from getting to them! Any thoughts?
