I built this modern building for my Sims that were graduating from college and needed an inexpensive place to live in town. I had originally uploaded this to the Sims 2 site exchange but have since renovated with some improvements. I’ve added a lobby and a patio, an extra floor and a sixth suite. I’ve also done a bit more decorating in each of the rooms rather than leave the furniture basic.
Each unit is a single bedroom apartment with a balconey. All units are generally similar in size and layout though the “b” units have slightly more square footage. There are also solar panels on the rooftop for energy efficiency.

The lounge area:
This is the floor plan screens I used when I uploaded this lot onto the exchange. I took out the ground floor apartment and made it a lounge and patio, added another storey to accomodate two more units (same layouts) and changed the decor since this screenshot, but this is pretty much how the rooms are laid out.
