Lego Downtown Bank
I built this modular building to replace the Lego Bank and Money Transfer Set. Initially, I expanded the Bank and Money Transfer set into a modular building, but it didn't really have the same "feel" as the rest of the buildings in our town. I incorporated many of the cool features from the Bank and Money Transfer set into this building.
About this creation


My six year old son demanding that I build a huge dollar sign, similar to the dollar signs on the bank in the Lego Police Chase animation shorts.







This is a deceptively simple bay window. When designing this piece, I imagined that City Bank converted a downtown house. The construction crew tore out one of the two second story windows to build a reinforced wall for the safe and bank sign.







I'm not sure I would use this ATM to withdraw money.





These guys are up to no good.









Surprisingly, these are very sturdy stairs and easy to build once I figured out its design. It is a modification from other spiral stairs found in other modular buildings. The rail actually lends much to its support although its not actually attached to the structure, save for the first and last stair. A few supporting beams from underneath also help maintain its shape.















Inside the vault.



Here are the two paintings I built for the interior. Fear not Lego purists, these are actually Lego stickers we received for free with a purchase of a small farm set.

Quoting Alaina Kerr Cool bank! I really like the details on the outside. Why is the dog behind the bank watching the guy getting his money?
Probably looking for a handout - I have a bunch of dogs and need places to stick 'em.

Quoting Mart de Wolff Any building instructions perhaps available??
Thanks for the compliment - when I have time I would like to at least put some instructions for the staircase.

Great building! Excellent job! Fits very well in the row of pet shops etc. You should ask Lego if they will produce this design as the next modular house.... Any building instructions perhaps available??

Great building with tons of details both inside and out. Those stairs are especially nice - much better than any of my attempts to do curved or spiral stairs. I've blogger this on Brick Town Talk!

Quoting Gabor Horvath Nice building! The best are the paintings and the dollar sign. But why is money machine (I don't know the english world) the behind the building?
I wanted to keep the ATM (the english acronym for Automated Teller Machine) from the Money Transfer Set, but I had no room in the front. Initially, I put it facing into the bank, but it proved awkward because of the staircase. So, I flipped it around so that it faces the back alley. It makes for interesting play - a perfect place for robbers to set up an ambush. In real life, though, in makes no sense.

Quoting El Barto ! I think the giant dollar sign give it away, that it's a bank and all. Very nice interior details!
Yeah - it's hard to miss. Well, I had reservations when my son asked how many dollar signs I was going to build for the top - but in the end, I gave in. Thanks for the compliments.
