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:

Thanks to Blueprint for allowing me to spread my wings on your wonderful server alongside with the pack used to create this!

Also would like to send thanks out to the creators of the shaders pack I used!

Just for note to whoever may read this. This build is well over the 255 block limit. It's a cool little technique we have been working on.

Anyways West, this build is really good. Despite the simple design, you managed an incredible amount of detail in the exterior.

I had already showed you where I got the idea from, and that was meerly a precedent. I've had this idea for years, just never did it xD :P

Scratch that, I did once try it... Almost 4 years ago. imgur.com/fXu3CRA .(Nakheel Tower, 1:1 scale)

I should redo that build... It's lost by now but I could rebuild it easily.
