Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The old Lakeview Llama Lamps factory was scheduled to be torn down and the land sold until an enterprising young assistant at Lake Crossing Realty proposed to the firm owners that they should purchase the factory and convert it into apartments. By renovating an existing building, they not only saved a load of simoleans on the development but were able to restore a bit of old SimCity in the process. They kept the original elevator and windows, restored the old tile floors for the hallways, and converted the loading dock into a common area for the residents.

On the first floor, there are four studio apartments with efficiency kitchens. On the second level are two larger apartments, both of which feature skylights; one with one bedroom and the other has two bedrooms. All apartments come fully furnished. The common area features a grill, basketball hoop, and plenty of seating for socializing with the neighbors.

6 apartments:
4 studios
1 1BR
1 2BR

$967-$3144
Lot Size: 3x4

All apartments are furnished with Maxis content.
Screenshots show HPs bedding default replacements.

Included content:
Ailias' Edge Smoother - Grey
HPs Jumbo Shrubby Shrub

*Note* To rent an apartment with all the furnishings beyond basic kitchen and plumbing, use either the boolProp testing cheat (please see HPs instructions in her Apartment building guide ) or Carrigon's Apartment Door hack found at Sims2Workshop.

Lot Size: 3x4
Lot Price: $967-$3144

Custom Content Included:
- Edge Smoother Gray by Ailias
- Jumbo Shrubby Shrub by HystericalParoxysm

Additional Credits:
Thank you to the staff and members of MTS2 for continued inspiration.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

The industrial makeover theme is great! Thanks for your time and creativity! Unfortunately, I can't download because I have a stupid Mac, and therefore have no AL...going mad over here. Still, a wonderful lot.

Haha!! Oh juliana, that looks awesome! Beats the pants off the lame lofts I've been building. I especially love the skylights. And the decor. Oh and your description and pics.
