I was playing around with the game on my laptop one weekend and figured I’d start a project.Â I wanted to try my hand at creating a modern townhouse/condominium community. The promenade and entrances are perpendicular to the main road (mostly so the apartments have a view of the water in my neighbourhood). There is a fake bakery/cafe with a stereo, bookcases and chess table and an art gallery on the promenade where your sophisticated Sims can socialize.
There are two buildings with 7 apartments. Some units are multi-level. Some are small 1 bedroom or studio units.Â Each unit have their own private outdoor space, whether it’s a balconey or a backyard or both.Â All rooms are fully furnished and decorated with Maxis objects. CC in screenshots are not included.Â Feel free to decorate to your Sims style and taste. :)

These apartments have been playtested. In my game, this is practically a retirement home. I only have elder townies move in.
A spaceous 2 level loft style with an extra room that can be used as an office or bedroom
3 level unit,Â 3 bedrooms, 2 baths,Â private back yard, 2 bathrooms
2 levels, 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms
Units 1 and 4 aren’t pictured, because I’m lazy. They’re both 1 bedroom units with private backyards and they’re very lovely.
* When I create apartments I try as much as possible to design it in such a way that there is sufficient sound proofing between each rooms. Just because of the nature of some of these spaces, I wasn’t able to do that without compromising the space some of these apartments have. To “sound proof” a room, all you need to do place objects along the shared wall such as paintings, or bookshelves. I’ve tried to furnish with this in mind (if you rent furnished). Apologies in advance if your neighbours are unruly at 4 in the morning, waking up your Sims. :(
