I haven’t built anything for the residential district of Micropolis recently, with my last few models being industrial, offices or leisure based. So this block is called High Cross, which accommodates a total of nine large apartment, one on each floor which is set at right angles to the one below.
This is Kiwi Court, a block of residential flats which I build a few weeks ago. Each cantilevered floor sits at right angles to the one below, while the different heights of the two blocks adds some visual variety.
I recently received some 1×1 trans black bricks from a BrickLink order, along with some 4×8 plates in an unusual colour – medium nogat. I began playing around with them along with some white grille bricks while I was chatting to LEGO buddy Jakob during video call. Eventually I settled on this L-shaped block with a diagonal window pattern, which I thought worked well. So this is Nougat Court, another residential block that will fit in very well in the city.
Recently, I was rummaging around my parts collection and came across two black plates – part 2401 – which Bricklink calls Plate, Modified 10 x 10 without Corner. I thought I could use them as the top and bottom of a new Micropolis model. Krikand Corner is a block of apartments, which will look very nice in the residential area of Micropolis.
Last year, I built Future Expo Park which showcased the technology and facilities which might be available in the a near Future version of Micropolis. Since then, I’ve been meaning to build an extension on a second complete block. Recently I found some of the half-built bits and pieces I had been keeping for the project, and decided I should get it finished.
This is the Dewlucks Estate, a new development of social housing for the residential area of Micropolis.
