Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After her successful collaboration with the HBG on Aileen Landing, the FARDT (Federal Alien Residential Development Team) approached Cat to begin this project:

They wanted to create an apartment complex that provides a self sufficient "communal" life style.
One in which everything necessary to lead a full and productive life is present on the property
- and there is no need for transportation off the premises.

After many months spent dithering with the development team officials over their non-existent plans to meet any medical needs that may arise in the community, and their lack of any consideration for children - no thought to schools or playgrounds... (quit rolling your eyes, Cat!) It is finally open for business!
Any interested beings are requested to apply for an internship with their local FARDT representative.
Rents range from $541 - $677

Please scroll through all the pictures above to get a better idea of all that this complex provides.

Besides living quarters for both single interns and non-childed couples... *sigh* (Shhhh, Cat! We know you think they're short-sighted!)
...There is a grocery store, restaurant, juice counter, tea/coffee counter, pool bar, lap pool, grill and picnic tables, plenty of games for social recreation, and lots of sunshine! All three buildings feature open, airy, Atrium-style roofs. The Blue Level is a top-notch research facility - they are studying sunflowers, coffee and apples. Perhaps in combining the three, they'll find the cure for... well, everything! LOL!

The research is funded by proceeds from the grocery store, restaurant, and pool bar - all located on the 'public' ground floor.
(NOTE: Unless you are an "imaginative" player - like me - you will need mods to make this lot function as I'm describing it. I'm not sure which mods you'll want, but I'll update if people make suggestions.)

Things you may want to know before playing this lot:
It has been play-tested. This is a clean copy of the lot - no sim has set foot on the property you download.
There are raised plant beds along the sides of the research area that are as-of-yet unplanted. You may want this:Vertical Gardens
Your sim may need stairs to reach the apple and coffee plants - or you may want Perfect Plants
The shelves in the grocery store need to be stocked - I will be using CC, and didn't want to include it all
The blue 'singles' apartment can't be "Looked At" but, it can be rented just fine. Don't forget this trick to rent a furnished apartment -

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 (Walls will be missing without this!)
Numenor's Invisible Wall - #91 (Apartment doors will be missing without this!)
Huge Lunatic's Recolorable Modern Stairs
Frillen's Invisible floor tile (Atriums will be broken without this!)
And, as always, I highly recommend:
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix

Lot Size: 5x5
Lot Price (furnished): $541 - $677

I really appreciate that you've mentioned the HBG and Aileen Landing in your upload!
Once we get Aileen Landing done, I'll play the neighborhood and place this apartment into the neighborhood. It really fits into the theme.

And it looks beautiful, too!
