Honestly, is a swimming pool a downtown themed building?
A rec center with a pool could be though.


This is the LINK for Imagine Swimming. It is in the dead center of New York City.

They are not a rec center. All they do is swim lessons, swimming themed birthday parties, and other things directly related to swimming.

They are part of a whole league of swimming pools found all over the city. See, http://www.imaginesw...locations.html.

Swimming pools are structures found in dense metropolitan areas all over the country.

Sixty Beans, a new coffee shop conveniently located just off the Blue Line and mere blocks from Town Hall and the theatre, opens for business February 20. Space above the shop will be available for rent March 1st. Negotiations for the basement vendor space still ongoing.

The Mom & Pop Furniture Outlet is finished. The M&P is located north of the portal next to Awesome Aggregates.

As a reminder to everyone, make sure to swing by every ones entry in the February Downtown Building Competition this week and cast your votes on the best projects. Voting will start on the 21st and end on the 29th.

Hopefully we can get a few more participates for the March city competition, don't think you have to have an elaborate plan, i sure didn't have one, i just threw something together.

Sixty Gig Community Pool finished on time but 170% over budget. :D

It was all worth it though. The pool comes complete with locker rooms, (including bathroom and showers,) lifeguard stations, diving boards, roof access, flags, lobbies, surprisingly expensive stone button studs, no running signs, emergency exits, and maintenance areas.

I just re-read the rules and discovered that the additions I made today were illegal. Somehow I thought we had the entire month of February. Being a last minute kind of guy, I figured I'd finish this week.
Anyway, fair is fair and I withdraw from the competition. The winner can have my entry fee and I can continue to work on my theatre.
God, I hate cheaters!

This was so hard to decide for me!!! In the future, i think we ought to award different prizes for a few different categories.

I would've made a different decision based on the following:

Overall Design - this is what I ultimately ended up voting for
Originality - there was one in particular that i thought was a good unique use of the materials in the game
Functionality - i almost voted for one not only being a great design, but actually incorporating working parts.

I would like to give an honorable mention to Ananda for building the movie theater! if the Rivoli was in the voting, I would've given it an originality vote, no question!

Great job everybody! The city is looking awesome now! :D

I like the idea of possibly having voting categories as well, as I also found it hard to weigh all of the factors of what made the builds great against each other fairly.

Garrik won the competition, the revote is only to determine second and third place, so Garriks project isn't listed again.

Ahaha, looks like we're looking at ANOTHER tie if we don't get more voters than last time... wasn't the final tally 14 on the original poll?

15 when I deleted it.. Might of been 16 though, because I was fiddling with the poll right before I deleted it and deleted my vote in the process, seeing if I could just wipe everyone's votes and reuse the poll.

(EDIT: We also have all the new limbo guys who can now visit the city and vote! :P)

Well if there happens to be two way tie for second i recommend just splitting the lapis and iron evenly between the two.

Ooh, that's a sensible proposal. I approve of Nek's plan.

I know Kabookee, Rizz, and Ziggii have meandered through the entries, though I don't know whether or not they've voted yet.
