Amenities and urban development. Simple right? Anything but! So how does a City simulator offer some tips? This crossover post with Ben’s Cities offers a cursory glance at amenities and residential developments.
A question often asked
A question often asked in the real world as well as Cities Skylines: How to upscale your residential area – that is how to trigger intensification or how to get a new residential area started.
This is a crossover post with my Talking Southern Auckland blog on amenities and residential areas.
