The (soon to be) City of Philomena

I was a bit disappointed when Antique Square closed up, being a seasonal-only build. I think Thaddeus Nadeau (of Antiques Grid Show fame) is one of the better city planners and architects out there and he’s got a real talent for making a parcel feel like home.

So when I learned that he (along with Zaida Gearbox, Nichus Berman, Charles-Phillippe de Tancarville, Steadman Kondor, and Krystine Qinan) had a new project in the works I had just three words to say: I want in. That project is the City of Philomena, a city in the skies above Love Dolls Island which takes up 5/8 of the sim. Each of the founders has a parcel in the form of a city block, and together they are collaboratively creating an early 20th century (but not really steampunk) setting.

Each of the founding members I’ve spoken to (Thaddeus, Zaida, and Charles-Phillippe) have stated how important it is to build a community and not just a series of buildings in Philomena, and each one plans at least one hangout for visitors. A park, a church, and a restaurant are among the gathering places in the works.
