Description
Please leave a vote if you download! This is a 4x4 high residential corner based on the Navarro Flats complex in New York, aswell as Kauker Manor in Simcity 4. The first in a series of 2.

About the model
By far my most complicated model, about 6000 tris 2048x2048 texture, with a diffuse, color, shadow, normal, illumination and specularmap.
This model has a custom LoD, which is about 1200 tris with a 512x512 texture, with a diffuse, specular and illumination map.

About the building
This is based of both a simcity 4 model and the navarro flats complex in New York. The complex was torn down in 1926.

Twice the size of the Dakota, the Navarro Flats was also an early example of apartment-style living. At the time, most New Yorkers of means still preferred living in a single brownstone or townhouse.

But “French Flats” were catching on, and the developer, Jose Francisco de Navarro, expected to make a mint selling luxury apartments to new-money New Yorkers.

He spared no expense. The seven-bedroom duplexes had as much as 7,000 square feet of floor space, including a drawing room, library, and billiards room (but only two bathrooms per apartment).

Each $20,000 duplex was part of one of eight townhouses within the complex, an arrangement thought to make the idea of apartment life more palatable, reports Nathan Silver’s Lost New York.

So why isn’t such a spectacular mishmash of Queen Anne and Gothic architecture there anymore?

Some apartments sold, but mostly, New Yorkers didn’t bite. In 1888, de Navarro was fending off lawsuits from mortgage holders, and the enormous complex met with foreclosure.

By the 1920s, it was gone–replaced by newer luxury residences the Hampshire House and Essex House.

Updates
- 31-05-2017, reduced LoD tris by about 900 faces, reduced texture size LoD texturesize to 512x256. Reduced triscount by around 150. Redid some textures (the brick should look especially sharper and updated the UV map. Added new props like the hawnthorne bushes instead of my own I made at the time.
