The above photo shows how the outside of the new Rathaus looks like at the moment. It is completed apart from a few details to fix, some textures and props.
I am aware that I haven’t kept up the blog updated on the building of this build, so I am planning to create clips which shows the different iterations of the various building parts.
There is still controversy about the rebuilding of this historically important giant. The CDS forum has been hot with replies to this project, some of our laws are in the process of being rewritten because of this rebuild, and all the while Mizou is just calmly using her measuring, cutting, sawing, drawing, painting tools and continuing to make this new Rathaus a building to be proud of as Kendra Bancroft wished in her 2005 proposal, which was kept all these years by one of our long time citizens.

Proposal from Guild for Revamped RATHAUS

2005-09-18 15:54:24 note card

FROM Gildemeister KENDRA:

RATHAUS

Building Plan and Budget proposed by DIE GILDE.

In short, DIE GILDE proposes on the former site of the Casino, a build
for the RATHAUS designed to impress.

Bordering on The Schloss and the Marktplatz, it will tie design from
both areas and integrate with the fountain which stands directly in
front.

Proposed is a recreation of the RATHAUS from Rothenburg, Germany.

see attached images. (attachments are lost)

With offices of deed management and a meeting place for Government
business on the 2nd and Third floors, The first floor will comprise a
grand lobby, an information center, translation service, and a
municipally owned Neualtenburg souvenir shop.

An ambitious project in scope and a build more complicated than either
the Kirche or The Schloss --requiring DIE GILDE to employ a
landscaper, an architect and a decorator (texture artist) as well as a
scripter. The RATHAUS, standing three stories tall with a footprint of
15m X 30m will in short, require adequate funding for the build.

In light of the complicated architecture and textures, and the sheer
amount of people involved, DIE GILDE sets the budget at $20,000
Lindens with DIE Gilde paying the artisans directly for their
contributions.

The RATHAUS is a purely municipal building and upon payment to DIE
GILDE will be owned by The City. All work to be set to "share with
group" under the Raumnutzer heading.

Respectfully,

Kendra Bancroft
Gildemeister

It really says it all, Kendra was planning to build something big, 15 x 30 m footprint is a lot bigger than the footprint of this 2017 rebuild of the Rathaus.

In light of the complicated architecture and textures, and the sheer
amount of people involved, DIE GILDE sets the budget at $20,000
Lindens with DIE Gilde paying the artisans directly for their
contributions.

Sadly this won’t be true, no more payments for builders, texture artists or scripters; I am doing it all for the pleasure of being a member of the oldest democracy in Second Life®.
Anyway, I think that Kendra is smiling at me from the other side for daring to take on this ‘ambitious project’ as she puts it in her notecard!
