Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This lot has 3 completely decorated and furnished "apartment" units...( dont ask how long THAT took!) One 1 bedroom unit, one 2 bedroom unit, and one deluxe 3 bedroom unit. Two of the units have access to the roof top garden and there is also a community park at ground level with a chess set, flower garden, fishing pond and room for gardening or playground. I was thinking this would be a great lot for a multigenerational family or perhaps to move in a bunch of singles and see who pairs up. I did a version of this for Sims2 and I really wanted to have something like it in my city for Sims3, so I hope you enjoy it. $210 furnished/$121k unfurnished.




Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: $210k

Number of bedrooms: 5 or more
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.

This is my new favorite - you rock!!

Wow, it's beautiful outside. I should probably do something.. Like close the blinds on my window so there isn't a glare on my computer screen.

You can move them in via edit town or by moving them out of the current house they are in and then taking them from the clip board and placing them in the lot. Since we dont have apartment functions yet, as we did in Sims2, the lot is designed to look like apartments and is sectioned as such,, but can be played as one very large house, if so desired. You could also bump out some of the interior walls to facilitate them moving between units, if that is what you want.

There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.

One of the things I absolutely LOVED about Apartment Life was the row houses. You've reproduced this look perfectly and the units are each uniquely gorgeous. Even if we can't play apartments, I must have this to give those darn countryish S3 towns a more urban look. Thank you for this gorgeous house!!! :D

... Wooow, pretty. The lovely thing about the houses San Francisco is how some of the houses right next to each other can be so wildly contrasting, and you captured that gorgeously here. I also tend to put families in "different" houses on the same lot /ALOT/... xD This will be very useful /and/ g'dang awesome. Yay!

Not perfect, but I'd say it's the best one can do for not having Late Night! Thanks a bunch for taking the time to make this lot! :)
