Hey all!

It has been a few months since the mammoth high school project "Westfield High School" which is now getting the work it has been lacking due to some server changes! Anyways I have taken on to a new front of builds in the Minecraft community which includes this tower. The build ratio is 1:1.5 which is very realistic sized for interiors and comfortable heights. This has been done in 2 different chunks that get rendered together thanks to "Ryer" The first chunk includes the 5 parts of the irl complex including the IDS Tower, Marquette Hotel, Crystal Court and the 8 story annex alongside with the 2 story shopping center.

CLARIFICATION:
Yes, The build height is 256m
Yes, I know the irl build is higher than 256
Yes, It is in 2 chunks of 250 and 220 to fit into the world
Yes, "Not Possible" but look its here, rendered together
Yes, I did use 1:1.5 (I Like it)
No, I did not hack
No, I did not use mods (besides shaders & optifine)
No, I will not build like this in every project
No, This is not open the the direct public on Blueprint
No, I will not warp you there


Now now enough of me. Here are some stats:
