The Viceroyalty of Perseus - Passau Island | An Introduction
« Reply #260 on: June 08, 2019, 02:38:57 PM »


Passau Island is the largest land reclamation project ever undertaken in Perseus and at 10km2 it's also one of the largest artificial islands in the world.

The location was selected due to the shallow waters and presence of an existing sandbank atop bedrock and it's proximity to Passau and the existing business district of Caledon Quay. Construction started in 2004 and was financed by primarily by the Persusian Government and Perseus Sovereign Wealth Fund. Significant investment was also leveraged from the private sector and sale of development plots.







Perseus is a seismically active region and this was factored into the design and construction of Passau Island. The existing sandbank was build up before being reinforced by means of densification, piling into the bedrock and the installation of innovative earthquake drains to combat liquefaction. The island also has a sophisticated surface drainage network to ensure surface water during wet weather is managed efficiently and effectively.

Passau Island was officially dedicated on 16th August 2014 by His Imperial Highness Prince Julius where he presided over an official ground-breaking ceremony and the dedication of a cornerstone for the Imperator Tower which is the tallest building on Passau Island.







Passau Island has also been designed with rising sea levels and an increasing number of tidal surges in mind. The entire island is ringed by a park which has been planted with trees and plants which can survive flooding events and contamination of the soil by sea water using an innovative freshwater flushing system to remove excess salt. The park also acts as sacrificial land in times of storm surge flooding and when combined with the barriers at full height affords protection of over 25 metres.

The barriers operate in conjunction with a series of sea buoys and a ring of various hydrological sensors that tell the system when to raise and lower the barriers. The barriers can operate at various heights up to a current maximum of 10 meters. When they aren't in operation the barriers are hidden within the quay embankment and don't restrict access in any form.





 

Passau Island is a landmark project delivering 25,000 new apartments with residential amenities, 50 million square feet of new office, retail and leisure space, landmark cultural attractions, new cruise terminal, marina facilities, expansion of Passau Metro and significant additional infrastructure investment.

A MD that takes climactic changes and seismic risks into into account ! Wonderfully innovative. I like the way Passau Island was conceived, the way it was built and what you show of the construction ! (also, that the high rise development is not packed full but visually breathing.)  &apls

Oh, man awesome images. What have you done with that train station on the 11th image  ???  &apls &apls &apls &apls That building could be awesome office stuff and you hijacked it in a very nice way!
By-the-way the previous incarnations of this showcase inspirated me to make my plaza set, what was released 1,5 years ago, but some of your custom lots on these images would worth a release for sure. Those plaza walks with the custom textures are awesome! I hope one day you'll decide to share them with the public in some way!
Thank you for this nice showcase!

Great work, ended up with a stunnig metropolian area!  &apls

The concept of the sea barriers is just great, and the execution is perfect too! Must taken quite some work for just a few pictures but well worth it.  :thumbsup:

Hey, nice to see that you still post there!
 
The overview of that forest of skyscrapers is stunning. However, I think that it must by quite shadow-y among them :D I always like such detailed plazas around modern development, looks great!  :thumbsup:

I also like the brick retaining walls from the picture no 11 in the last update. Could I ask, where is it possible to find them? :)

Nicely described the story behind the island. The idea of flood wall around all of it is interesting. However, it must have been tremendously expensive. As well, as quite prone to single-device failure  &Thk/(

Beautiful city tile, wonderful set-ups and custom lots. Probably will return with a handful of request, which lot or building can be found where. Thanks for sharing these images!

The final instalment of this tour around Passau Island. It's been a delight to showcase this project and one I didn't think I'd be able to thanks to errors and CTDs that plagued my gaming experience for over a year.

A massive thanks to be very talented creators that made this modern development possible. Without the fantastic buildings from the likes of mattb325, Diego Del Llano, Reddonquixote, kellydale2003, JP Schriefer, Girafe, kingofsimcity, on001222, Huston, Xyloxadoria, SimFox, AndisArt and Cockatoo this project couldn't have been realised in the way I hoped it could

The next updates will come from the Illford West area of Passau that you've seen in previous updates. Unfortunately this game file has serious problems and errors so I've had to move on from it as any new saves result in corruption. I have been able to do a little work and take some images but they are not up to my standard but I want to show them regardless as a lot of work went into this city tile.

@belfastsocrates:  Thanks for the info.  The link is not coming up at the moment.  Maybe their site is having problems this morning.  I'll check back later.

Thanks again.

The Viceroyalty of Perseus - University of Passau Sports Campus
« Reply #276 on: September 28, 2019, 09:20:05 AM »


I'd been meaning to showcase this area a long time ago but this game file has serious problems and errors so I've had to move on from it as any new saves result in corruption. I have been able to do a little work thanks to recent game stability and take some images but they are not up to my standard but I want to show them regardless as a lot of work went into this city tile.

There will be two final updates from the West Illford area of Passau and this update will focus on the University of Passau's sports campus. The campus is a world-class centre encompassing a range of facilities such as a velodrome, aquatics centre, strength and conditioning suites, outdoor training pitches, gymnastics, acclimatisation chambers and research labs. Most facilities are also open to the public and are used by the Passau Olympic and Paralympic Teams for training.

Nice sport zone. I imagine that the problems with saves must have been really annoying, but the result is really good  :thumbsup: I keep my fingers crossed for you to come over the technical troubles!

I haven't seen that dmscopio building with the large blue roof used in a long time. Nice. That looks really good, excellent lotting.
