A 19th Century office tower typical of the period between 1880 and 1910. This design incorporates the use of light and dark contrasting to emphasize form and conceals roof structures with a decorative crowning parapet.
About this creation
This model was primary built using three Town House kits from the Creator series and is of modular design. The rear of the building is not detailed as its main purpose is to provide a backdrop to a rail yard and will not be visible to the observer. The building translates well into a contemporary scene as many buildings of this type still exist all around the world. Buildings of this type are commonly occupied by financial institutions, insurance companies, government departments, or law firms.
SNOT = studs not on top. There are several method how to come to this (just use Google or search on MOCpages for that). Usually this methods leads to smoother MOCs. Nice details are in the entrance area: the lamp, the front with the use of the small slope parts. Perhaps someone sitting naked on a ledge, someone sliping on a banana or something like that would enahnce the MOC. Just something - unusual.

Great MOC! Can you add a top view picture? And did you set up the interior or is it one of many empty, commercial real estate objects that are for rent but can't be filled? ;-)
Thank you! I will add some more pictures soon including a roof shot, but there isn't much up there, just a low pitch roof with a water tank and sometimes a radio tower. As for the interior, I don't often detail interiors unless it has an obvious impact on the external view, so yes, this building is currently for lease.

o.k., well done. Some SNOT tech, some nice details. But the real highlight iis missing, so its 4/5. But by far the best new MOC today!
Thank you for your appraisal. I'm wondering if you might clarify the meaning of the term SNOT tech and what the missing detail is as you see it. You may just inspire me to make some alterations. Thanks again!
