*edit 4/9/20, I forgot I had reference pics for this

I had never heard of the Bo-Kaap until JustPetro posted row houses based on it a little while ago. (Check them out, they're pretty cute) But then of course I had to Google it. And then I wandered around it in Google streetview.

And yeah. Freakin amazing. So I made a block based on it, hope you enjoy.

Just a few notes
- No custom content included or required
- The lot has some big elevation changes (the real neighborhood is built on a hillside), but the edges are all flat, so don't worry about that
- Cars are first-come-first-served on apartment lots, but you can use them.
- Constrainfloorelevation false was used for the not-actually foundation. It's missing select pieces so walls will drop correctly on the bottom level.
- Moveobjects was used and some things aren't snapped to grid, but the furniture works
- Burglar alarms behind fridges, Fire alarms above fridges, and in a few other places
- There is a phone in every apartment

A copy of the lot was play tested, but please message me if you run into any problems

Reccomended Mods
- Apartments and Shopping, on the same Lot! by MogHughson So that the cash register in the store will spawn a clerk to make it a working store instead of a decorative one
- No Apartment Noises - Global Mod by Marhis -- Optional, but very nice. I spent a little while trying to minimize noise problems on this lot, and then...I decided to heck with it. I hate that "feature" anyway.
- Rugs - zMOG!! Off Grid!! by HugeLunatic --You don't need it, but it's awesome, and if you don't have it some of the rugs will look funky until you pick them up and put them on grid
- Water Inaccesible Flowers by dickhurt --If you don't want it you could of course just delete any problem flowers you run across.
- Trim Inaccessible Bushes by Cyjon --Likewise for bushes

Lot Size: 5x3
Lot Price (furnished): 712,497 were it to be made residential
