Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thank you for sharing, this building is great!

Maybe I'm missing something, but the liveable apartment appears to be lacking doors.

I love this apt. Thank you,very creative & NO CC!! that alone makes it a winner. However, in an apt I just wish ther was an option to have more people or larger families ,since we can only play 1 family. Could have a roomate thingy if there were more brdrooms available..If you do not object I may try "buydebug" and see what I can do about that.
Thank you! Great apt!

I saw the same thing in the floor plan, and was wondering about it, but then I noticed in one of the living room shots that you could see a door. Makes me think the overhead shot was taken before the doors were added.

that seems to be a little bug or maybe because the walls are extremly high (about 3 floors). but dont worry, there are enough doors for everyone =)

I click on it to install it but it only appears the sims 3 launcher and not in the downloads button. What can I do? It seems a real cool apartment
