Since 1999, SkyscraperPage.com's forum has been one of the most active skyscraper enthusiast communities on the web. The global membership discusses development news and construction activity on projects from around the world, alongside discussions on urban design, architecture, transportation and many other topics. SkyscraperPage.com also features unique skyscraper diagrams, a database of construction activity, and publishes popular skyscraper posters.
This is a project I've been working on and off for the past couple years. Prior to my starting this project, there was only a few buildings downtown modeled by the WEDC. For the most part, I'm working on modeling the WPI campus and surroundings, although I hope to eventually work my way down town by the time I graduate.
Some of the textures are so good - for example the Thule Building - that I'd really like to see a more detailed version of the building (more extrusions and intrusions on the facade) than just the flat surfaced Google Earth version.
