Gipswijk April 2012
Another update from the evolving Gipswijk streets, this time with added description!
About this creation
The Orange Glassed building on the corner is the Gipswijk equivalent of Richard Roger's building for Lloyds Insurance. The buildings to the left are still in their shell like form, awaiting time and inspiration. On the opposite corner stands an Headquarters building for an unyet unimagined company, note the gold brick, won in a newspaper competition, incorporated in the design.

I've tried to allow a playing space in as many buildings as possible. The one in the foreground is above a small parade of shops, the interior is awaiting kitting out. The flat has a wonderful view of the far end of the platforms at the always changing Centraal station

St Natalia's station now overlooks a small wharf, with a lifting bridge crossing it. The houses to the sides are at the embryonic stages. The pirate aboard his 1970s vessel looks misguided and bewildered, likely to be something to do with the quick changes to his surroundings.

Another view of the lifting bridge, I quite like it but it isn't exactly finished. Underneath the spans of the railway arches you can see a small garage/workshop.

The intention is for this to become Stationstraat, full of lively bars, hotels and other buildings of importance. The shells are in place but await an injection of life and, er, completion. I need to put lots of signs up.

Centraal Station has changed again, probably the 15th time or so. It has now nestled happily between many buildings of similar height, it almost blends in. It'll get an entry of its own one day.

A minifigures view along an as yet un-named street. My tribute to the Kia Soul is mid picture, the main rail line passes in the background.

Centraal Station seen from the docks, the park occupies the mid ground.

A better view of the park, I need to find another white gate and obviously liven things up. I'm hoping to get a series 7 minifigure Neptune or something similar to adapt into a statue.

This is the far end of Stationstraat, where it turns the corner to become @$%^&*straat. The red building has survived unadulterated in the main for quite a while now. This'll change.

Seen this from quite a few angles now, not sure why I uploaded this, nice light I suppose.

The tram and the stable are points of note, although the tram has been seen many times before. The blue building in the foreground is intended to gain a few more floors but this area of town is fairly complete, it has existed for quite a while now.

This is more or less a duplicate of the last picture and not really needed.

This is pretty much the extent of the tram line until I think of a clever way of expanding it, this is unlikely, but as the line serves no real purpose it does annoy me, so this may need to be addressed.

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 don t forget to leave space for sidewalks and street parkings, or it will be cramped! looks to me you have a lot of work ahead of you lol!
Parking IS becoming an issue, the mayor will be spoken to. Yeah, I do seem to have a lot of work ahead.
