Epic Skyscraper
#1
As mentioned in server chat, I'm planning on building an EPIC skyscraper at spawn. This will be huge. We're talking 5x5 CHUNK footprint (thats 80x80 blocks) and will stretch all the way from sea level to height limit.

Walls will be 3 blocks thick with an obsidian layer in middle.
There will be a new floor every 10 blocks.

No way will i be able to build this by myself. I have the materials for it but not the man power. What I plan to do is pay people with duped gear.

The location I've picked for this obnoxious tower will be 55,555.
I know this is a historic location to many, but it is currently ripe for redevelopment. We can have a melon floor in the skyscraper in memory of our famous noob farm if desired.

This old render pic from a year ago shows the location (yellow square)

The lavacasts in the above pic have long since been removed... this is a pic of the location today

The next day I log on to find someone has stolen all the shulkers of materials and blown up the road

However a new and improved road was quickly built in it's place (extra thanks to Traintle for helping)

The tower itself is also starting to take shape

Evanlegota removed the wall that was blocking view and really widened the place up

The obsidian lining snaps to chunk lines for easier building

I was going to call this place the Party Palace because of the events that are planned here, but I think "The Five Fives Building" is a better name. I mean heck its a 5x5 chunk tower at 55 555.

PriorityQueue says the skyscraper is too blocky and square. He's got a point.
