This gorgeous tall building was once an architectural highlight of the city. It was also one of the centers of business activity, usually overcrowded by citizens. Everything changed when alien invaders suddenly came from the darkest depths of Earth...

Characteristics:
→ 32 x 32 corner building. It is a classic modular building with an interesting twist.
→ Building comprises 3 stories, an attic and a shed on the roof resulting in an overall height of 45 bricks.
→ Fully furnished interior including a bookshop, a private apartment, a bank office and a courtroom.
→ Model consists of over 8500 parts in 36 colors.
→ Instructions consist of over 1100 pages with high resolution (300 dpi) pictures.

Building tips:
→ Please pay attention to mold variations of parts in the inventory. Some of them cannot be replaced with alternates. In cases when mold type is not important, the most common one is used. Consider jumper plates (3794) for example. A version without groove is primary for most colors in the inventory. A version with groove is used solely for decoration purposes and can be replaced by the former version, or vice versa. On the contrary, a version with bottom stud holder is used only when the stud holder is required. Such occasions are specially indicated in the instructions.
→ Printed parts are not mandatory. You may use different decorations or plain parts instead.
→ Some minifig parts lack decorations in the instructions. Please refer to the inventory for suggested decoration variants.
→ You may replace 3 dark bluish gray parts 18674 'Tile 2 x 2 Round with Center Stud' with parts 4150 'Tile Round 2 x 2'.
→ It is possible to replace most of parts 6005 'Brick Arch 1 x 3 x 2 Curved Top' with parts 6183 'Brick Arch 1 x 6 x 2 Curved Top' (2 by 1). Only small modifications are required.
