Welcome to my microcity, which is yet to be named! Hopefully this city will thrive and grow like Shannonia, but I doubt it. It is just about impossible to rival a microcity like Shannonia. Before I start the tour, I have something to say. You probably notice that there are just about no roads, and by the beach (which should be in the front) there is no sand or water. This is because of the projects I am currently working on, and may take a while to create. You will also see a lot of blue studs under buildings. This is because since I also have to make roads and one layer of some kind of terrain, I need the whole building to be above the ground. I would also like to thank Shannon Young for the grill tile technique in which you make a 3x3 cover of grill tiles, with one open stud in the middle. One more thing: These pictures are taken at night, and may not look too good. Also, I didn't have a good background. As soon as possible, I will get better pictures. I must say, photography is not my forte, especially Lego photography. Now to finally start! This building you see is the first ever building built in the microcity. It is the Branch Corporate Office of the microcity. It is one of the smaller government buildings.
The famed Sunrise Hotel & Spa. This is one of the fanciest hotels in the city, and it has a great view of the ocean for sunrise and sunset, and the occasional water-skiing wipe-out. At almost 20 stories, it is the tallest building in this part of town. The penthouse is amazingly expensive, and has 20-foot glass panels that have the best views of all. It would probably be cheaper to go to another country for over a week with your family than stay here for one night by yourself.
The Orange Sandbar. This place is run by the Sunrise Hotel, and has annoyingly high prices that are suspiciously unlike the typical grocery store.
The Log Cabin Co., Inc. This busy factory is the most productive log cabin real estate company in the city, and has built over 75% of the city log cabins.
These two buildings happen to be in the same picture, so to conserve space, I am putting them together. The white and blue building is one of the biggest paper manufacturing companies in the nation. To keep costs down, they use their own paper for documents.
The gray building is the Happy Fun Office Building, a company designed solely to supply cheesy birthday parties for little kids. The costumes for the staff fall apart and they have artificial icing for the cakes, whatever that means. Despite the bad quality, I like this building a large amount more than some of them.
The Random Yellow. It is only called 'Random Yellow' because it is a vacant building. It isn't an office, hotel, house, restaurant, or anything else. Just an empty building with ugly tile patterns.
The Ocean Lovers Seafood Restaurant. They serve gourmet seafood. This fancy eating establishment is run my the Ocean Lovers Headquarters, which is sad because they apparently are trying to save sea life.
The Ocean Lover Headquarters, which is full of mysterious offices. Their slogan is "Dolphins are good" but no one knows what direction that statement goes in. Although rumor has it that it has something to do with the branch of the company next door....
Tree Huggers Guild. The members here LOVE trees. They say without them, there aren't any animal habitats. But there is NO way that could be true.... Not.
Luke's Luxury Lodges. Rumor has it that these buildings are owned by the fabled Luke Skywalker, although no one knows how he got here from a galaxy far, far away.
The Red Flame Apartments. Good priced housing with friendly neighbors. Ironically, no one here owns coats. It could be because the thermostats never drops below 85 Fahrenheit.
The Section 1 Jail. This may look a bit horrifying, but this is nothing compared to the Criminal Municipal Containment Center in the middle of the city.
Thanks for visiting! Please come again for the first expansion, and I hoped you like it so far! Thanks also to Shannon Young, who has the best microcity there is, Shannonia.
Very nice, and, yes, you may join the group. I kind of ceased and haulted on my Micros. However, it seems no one understands the difference between Micro and Mini. Mini is 4 stud road, cars 1 stud. Many details are included. Micro is 1 stud road. Buildings make up most of the detail.
Hey, I like this! It's quite good for being so small, and the commentary is excellent. (Gotta love a company that manufactures log cabins!)

Let me be the first to welcome you to the brotherhood of microcities. prepare for long months of pain that you can't find that "One more piece". Money flowing to bricklink and the like. And agonizing hours spent trying to come up with a new design when you've already done so many and you don't want to repeat. You have been warned. On a brighter side, this is great, I like your approach to make your buildings that tall, its taller than most others do in their microcities. Looks very good. ~T
Thank you. I already know what you mean, because I have no road tiles or water tiles, and I need a yellow grill tile for one of my buildings. I am actually already having trouble making a third addition (second already built). And the reason for my tall buildings is because I noticed some of mine were shorter than others, and some have actually doubled in size.
