Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
SoHo is a residential neighborhood in New York City and home to many interesting shops, art galleries, and restaurants.
The buildings in the historic and residential district date from the late 19th century and originally housed warehouses, factories and sweatshops. They eventually were converted into apartments with businesses on the ground floor.The neighborhood rose to fame as a neighborhood for artists and bohemians during the 1960s and 1970s. This series called Living in Soho is my recreation of that neighborhood.

These Brownstone townhouse starters are the last part of this series. The ground floor storefront is suitable for almost any business. Homes are in move in condition with all plumbing. Your sim can also rent out the first floor studio in this building and make a great profit. The studio is filthy but you can still charge alot and get away with it!
This townhouse is next door to another building which is a buyable business. It can be made into a great florist, antique shop, or even an office. The possibilities are endless.

This is a one family building with rentable stuidio next to an empty lot(Driveway) on Greene Street.

Thank you for your kind words. It makes me so happy to know if my lots are something you find useful, and enjoy!
JEenniel759, I think the lots look best in the downtown area. There wont be that grass patch in front of the house.

I had a question, you say studio apartment and owner's apartment. Is there any way to make other, uncontroleble sims live and pay rent on this lot?

Kate 522,
there are some game mods out there for landlord tenant situations. But you would still be controlling all sims on the lot. I think when Apartment Life comes out, there will be a way. I sometimes have a family that is the "owner family" and then have a "tenant" move into the lot. Its not a true landlord/tenant relationship but it seems like it is ;p

Hi. I love this lot, but while editing it, I can't seem to remove the driveway. Is there something special you did to put it in?
