This is my project for the Sky Limit Building Contest.

In real life this tower would be 726 ft tall, a 72 story building, in addition to the main tower, you will find housing for the workers, a small factory, a moving house, a giant airship and a Museum with real mob exhibits. In the main tower you will find a luxury interior suited for you comfort which includes 5 bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining hall, a working piano, a kennel, a playroom, a spa and a study plus a customizable room of your choosing. Above this you will find a training center fit with a room for alchemy, smithing, enchanting and your own mob arena for harvesting EXP! Above this is the portal room to the Nether, then a library and finally a roller coaster! But this is no ordinary roller coaster! It takes you to the top of the tower, where a surprise fit for KINGS awaits you! Have fun! And feel free to read the story I wrote below!

Steve stumbled through a dark, wet cobblestone street. The rain came down in torrents. A bottle of Gin in one hand and a bandage covering the other, Steve felt along the walls of the alley way until he found the corner. He turned onto the gas lit broadway and until he fell into an apartment building that was squeezed between two others like a book in a bookshelf. His footsteps fell hard on the creaking wooden staircase. When he got to his room, he collapsed on his torn matress and tried to sleep the pain of loss away. But then the phone rang. It was the bank. An great flood of anxiety poured into Steve's heart as he braced for more bad news about the Iron market. He should've trusted his instincts and invested in Gold and Diamond, not Iron and Emerald. A shaky voice belted through the phone, almost stifled by the ecstacy of the message it bore. "The price of emerald increased 700 fold today! 700 fold! You are a trillionare! The likes of you deserves more than this planet!" Steve not knowing what to make of it, stared at the cracked wall in front of him. All the barriers he had once ran away from, suddenly shattered. He passed out.
The Big Build
When Steve woke up. He immediatly called the bank back, he said to the clerk, "I'd like to make a withdrawal.", "For how much, sir?" "1 Trillion dollars." The line fell silent. The next thing Steve knew, he was riding in a luxury airship up to the most valuable real estate in the world. These floating islands were a geological mystery! When the banker had told Steve that this world was not fit for him, Steve took that advice. So wanting to build a complex like no other, Steve hired my architecture firm, Jim Rainy and Sons Architects Inc., to build him the ultimate floating complex. It took years, but the wait was worth it, Steve had all he ever dreamed for. And with that beauty came functionallity, everything Steve wanted, he had. So many features, a spa, a working piano, a throne!
End Remark
Explore the vastness of this creation, there will always be something for you to discover.

I did alot of Research for my project, here is a list of the styles of architecture I used.
Architecture Style
The base of the tower is my own style. The Mansion layer is Second Empire Style. The Training Layer is Baroque Revival. The Tower Layer is Brick Gothic. The Moving House is Steampunk/Timber Frame Revival. The Workers housing Manor is Gothic/Timber Frame Revival. The Airship is Steampunk. And, finally, the Museum is Neo-Byzantine.

Finally, Download the World Save to explore it! :D

This project was done 100% by yours truly, Jimbo-Rainy.

Additional Notes

75% of the build was built by hand. The rest was MCEdit.

You cannot post this anywhere on the Internet without my Explicit Consent.

After downloading the World Save, un-zip (extract) it to your saves file in the .minecraft folder.

Thanks to SnowyLips for the AWESOME render! Check her stuff out!

If the download link doesn't start right away, refresh the download page and try again. That seems to work for me.
