Corporate center
A 7-story building designed after the Western Union Building on Union Square, one of Fifth Avenue's oldest commercial buildings. It has real working electric lights, a florist, a general store, a laundromat, and a graphic design studio.
About this creation
These photos feature a 7-story model that contains real working electric lights! The building was originally built in 1998, and rebuilt from the ground up in 2000 to incorporate the electric lighting, as well as make access to the various floors easier.

Design Notes

The building is 7 stories high, which includes a peaked "attic". It's base is 16x48 studs.

Many of the rooms and stores contains real electric lights, which looks awesome in the dark!

The lower floors have "drop cielings" that allow electrical wiring to run across the building and into the various offices.  There are also vertical ducts enclosed in the rear of the building to allow wiring to run to the upper floors.

The whole building hinges open on its center to allow access to the offices indoors.


What's Inside

   Victoria's Fine Florist has got lots of cool pieces like 1x1 circluar grey plates, and a floor built of tiles. It also slides out of the building for easy access.

   The General Store has tons of great stuff for sale, like hardware, kitchenware, and more. It is located on the first floor and slides out of the building for easy access.

The owner is a cool old guy; check out that closeup! :) This is perhaps the coolest minifig face I've ever seen.

   An employee is waiting to grab something off the shared laser printer at Bossinger Design Studios. Next to him are 2 iMacs .. strawberry and tangerine. Bossinger Design Studios takes up the entire second floor. There's also a drafting board, some iMacs, and an easel. (See the Brickshelf gallery.)

   Not many Manhattanites have their own washer/dryer! Here's a closeup of a woman doing her laundry at the laundromat on the first floor. The laundry machines were assembled using pieces from a Divers submarine, which I bought with the sole intent of making laundry machines. :)
