Miami Malls Content Pack Released!

Welcome to Miami

In the Miami Malls content pack you’ll strive to establish a mall that rivals some of the world’s great shopping centers.

The Miami Malls content pack features:
  • 15 additional stores and restaurants! Now you’ll be able to create shopping centers that no longer need offices, apartments or hotels to draw in visitors.
  • Bus terminals and train stations that will bring even larger crowds to fill your malls and shopping centers.
  • An observation deck to draw in droves of tourists who might just stop by a food court or a souvenir shop while they’re heading up to take in the panoramic city views.
  • Towering mall fountains, decorations and wallpapers with tropical flair to match the new Miami Malls stores and restaurants.
  • ...and even more features to help you build a magnificent Miami Mall!
Even if you're not ready to head to Miami, we've got some additions and changes that are available to everyone!

  • Add your own bit of Miami flavor to your skyscrapers with six new summertime decos in the "Seasonal" tab of the decos menu.
  • We've redone the logic for visitor generation for retail stores and for some restaurants. You should see a better balance of visitors in all of those.

  • New keyboard shortcuts
    • Infrastructure: Z (bulldoze), X (build floor), C (build standard elevator)

About This Game

Your job as the architect and developer is to build world-famous skyscrapers that will be the envy of the entire city, masterpieces of art and engineering. But a skyscraper is more than just steel and glass, it’s an intricate ecosystem, full of people that live and work in the building. They become a complex machine that needs your steady hand to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.

From the moment you break ground, every decision rests with you. As the architect you must coordinate the construction of everything - every wall and wire, every office and apartment. As the building owner you must keep your tenants happy - and paying rent on time. As a savvy developer you must keep an eye on the bottom line and invest in the future. Succeed and you will reap the rewards of a prestigious address where everyone will clamor to live and work. Fail and you will watch tenants leave in disgust, taking their business elsewhere and leaving your reputation in tatters.

Will you create an exclusive office highrise that attracts business leaders from around the world? Will you construct luxury apartments in the sky, penthouses for the elite and playgrounds for the famous? Perhaps greed will get the better of you and you’ll build a tenement building that trades tenant happiness for loads of cash? All these choices and more are yours. Success is entirely in your hands.


  • Deep and complex simulation of a modern skyscraper.
  • Huge variety of tenants with their own unique characteristics, from restaurants, to offices, retail stores, or residential apartments.
  • Open sandbox play with several difficulty levels and starting conditions allowing you to build your dream skyscraper towering above the surrounding city.
  • Campaign mode that tests your skill at building a successful highrise in challenging scenarios.
  • Test your management mettle by keeping up with your buildings diverse population and their ever-increasing demands.
  • Hire specialized consultants to increase your building's curb appeal, operational efficiency, and pull with city hall.
