  1. I think it took longer than this to build the Chicago Water Tower. What a beautiful emporium. Looking forward to seeing the photo shots of the shoppers inside. Hope that won’t be too tricky.😉

  7. These sets just keep getting better and better. This has got to be one of my favorites as well as the Green Grocer. Great job!

  9. Have you seen the Pet Store?

    May 15, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    • yup. i’ll probably get the fire station first, since that won’t be around much longer. i’ll get the condo/pet store sometime later this summer.

      wish i could get the green grocer. but they don’t make it anymore. i could try to get a complete set from someone on amazon, used, for like $400. but, uh, no.

  12. Took my wife and I about the same amount of time, maybe more. I kept playing with it the whole time. She was getting very frustrated. LOL. It’s very fun build. Thanks for sharing your experience.
