The next modular build to be lit in the street is Grand Emporium. This is a three storey corner department store, featuring escalators to reach each floor, a revolving entrance doorway and top floor chandelier design.

As I've been hiding the view of the wall behind the modulars recently, with the addition of the Terrace Façade and Optician's Façade, I thought that the alleyway between the Highlander Pub and Al's barbershop needed to have something behind it. I decided a simple wall would be enough -... Continue reading

After the Terrace House façades that were added between two modular buildings to give depth to the display, I wanted something similar that could be seen between the units that is present in the Assembly Square build. As Assembly Square is full of commercial properties, I decided that a shop... Continue reading

To hide the wall behind the modular park I have added the façade of three terraced houses - based loosely on the terraced house that can be seen in the Pet Shop Modular building- and fitted each with a cosy porch light. These façades give the impression of a street... Continue reading

A little extra addition to the street using a 16x32 baseplate that sits between two modulars. The modular park contains a statue of the town founder, a beehive, numerous plants and a small tree. A spotlight lights the statue in the evenings. Continue reading

On the side of the Police Station modular there is a large billboard. This cannot be seen on the street due to its position, so I took the decision to remove it and place it on the corner MOC, adding two crystal lights above it to illuminate it. Continue reading

The next modular to be lit on the High Street is the Book Shop. This is a narrow build, as it was sold with the Book Shop House, but could be separated. This is a ground floor shop, with mezzanine floor above and a flat for the shopkeeper on the... Continue reading

The Palace Cinema modular was powered in January, but I was never happy with the canopy and 'Palace' sign area of the build. I really wanted to include lights on the 'Palace' sign, and have them chase like they would on a real old fashioned cinema building. I'd looked at... Continue reading

The next modular to be lit on the High Street is Assembly Square. Unlike any other modular, this build does not have a 32x32 block footprint, but instead has a 48x32 footprint. It was released to celebrate 10 years of the modular building range, and designed to be a little... Continue reading

The next build, Palace Cinema, is a two storey corner modular build and, like the Brick Bank modular, it has no baseplate space at the rear. The ground floor of the cinema is the main foyer area with ticket windows, a food area and stairs leading to the first floor.... Continue reading

The street is full. There is no more room for another modular to be added to it. This is a problem as I have the Corner Garage to build at some point, as well the Police Station that will be ordered once it is released. Add these two modulars to... Continue reading

With the completion of power to the Pet Shop House, the half way point had been reached, and a break in the modular layout. I had been wondering how to pass the power cable from the Pet Shop house to the Book Store house across the street within the wire... Continue reading
