You've worked hard your whole life - now it's time to relax! The Elder Living Community is the perfect place for you to spend the sunset of your years. Each unit has one bedroom and one bathroom and completely upgraded appliances. Common areas are for Elder Sims only and include a theater, a gym, a steam room, and a game room filled with activities. The lot also includes basement parking so you don't have to give up driving just because you moved to a smaller place!

Currently the lot is set up as a Late Night apartment with one player unit and seven NPC units. You can alter this by removing the lot markers in BuyDebug, or you can keep them as NPC apartments and just remove them as needed when more Elders need the space. The Barrier to Entry doors are all set to permit Elders only to the common areas on the main floor, but if you want to make this a regular apartment building you can remove the restrictions or just replace them with regular doors.

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.

Love the look of this lot. I think I'll use one copy for elder living, and turn another copy into a regular apartment complex! Thank you for sharing this. :D
