OMG!!! Scroll down to the bottom and just look at all that CC! >wow< I am in awe of myself. (and not in a good way...)
Welp, no matter. The new 2021 Updated with MUCH Less CC Version is here!
I fixed a few routing problems too, but mostly it was just clogged with too much CC. Please re-CCifiy it once you get it into your own Downtown.

2021 Update - CC included:
- LAURANA Interior Fence by 11dots
- Carina Spotlight Modular Stairs by Chrissy6930 & Numenor
- Carina Modular stairs fence by Narayani @ MTS2

AND you will need to get:
Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2
Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button below to see how I did it
NOTE: If you decide NOT to use Numenor's Wall #90, the CFE'd walls under the front swoopy-roof bits might be broken.

I did not retake pictures ~ the "look" remains pretty much the same. Enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The original upload post follows... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sims Virtual Realty is proud to announce the Eastside Downtown Gentrification Enterprise (EDGE) is finally underway. The first project the EDGE undertook was this little long forgotten house across from the cemetery. The house, originally built after WWII to accomodate returning soldiers, has been unoccupied for the last 20 years (well, legally it's been unoccupied; there've been a few... shall we say - travelers, over the years, along with a lucrative side business or two.) Now all those rumors can be put to rest,* as the house has now been transformed into this very lovely building - which currently houses four different new businesses. Each business is unique to itself, yet they compliment each other perfectly - making this a prime downtown destination for your Sims.

Though new, these four businesses have already aquired quite the clientel. The Count and Cassandra Goth were seen dealing cards and raking in the chips. Don Lothario it appears simply loves tea (who knew?) Mrs. Crumplebottom has been spotted having a cuppa something-far-stronger-than-tea at the Back Porch bar; Brandi Broke was there too - sitting sad faced and all alone. And, last weeks Karaoke champ was none other than Mr. Big.

*Annette, a hair dresser in the salon, has reported unexplained cold spots over at her corner station. One morning she thought she saw an elderly person with very long hair (wearing pants - Annette couldn't tell if it was a man or a woman) walking up the stairs before the salon opened - when she went to check the upstairs landing, the doors were still locked and no one was there.
I probably shouldn't disclose this information, but it may be a selling point for some. If you place this lot where I did (the small empty lot across from the cemetery) - I think it's to be expected. Just check out the neighbors across the street!

  • Lot size: 30X20 (2X2) - Community Lot
  • About 2,000 sq ft covered indoor space - on 3 levels. Currently housing four businesses
  • Around $122,857 simoleons - I say "around" because I have extensively re-organized my build/buy catalogues and, in doing so, re-priced most everything. I don't know if this will effect the cost in your game or not. If it does, maybe your Sims qualify for a huge tax break? Inheritance? Or, it's their turn to win the lottery?
  • Furnished - this is a turn-key business opportunity
  • Current businesses in residence:
    Cuppa Charm Cafe and Tea Shoppe - with the covered side porch for tea parties and group meetings
    The Back Porch - karaoke bar with nightly specials
    Simply Relax: Salon and Day Spa - very exclusive, trendy, and... expensive. Located in the basement
    The Backroom Club - care for a game? Upstairs in back
  • Cable for TV, and WiFi included
  • Phones installed and ready
  • Invisible/stealth Alarm system included
  • Beautiful landscaping - fully maintained by a local lawn service
  • Janitorial services are also already contracted - no set-up needed
  • Quality high-end Maxis construction - built to withstand the rigorous pressures of commerce
  • Member of the Chamber of Commerce; registered with the BBB
