Custom LEGO Skyscraper MOC #1 complete... for now


As noted very early in the video, this first skyscraper of mine was required to be simple in its design so that I could get it done as quickly as possible.  Without that self-imposed mandate, this project could have taken months.  Instead, it used up about 4 evenings of initial design work, another couple sessions of optimization for parts efficiency, strength, and ease of assembly, a single long evening on Bricklink, and less than 12 total hours of actual building.  The end result is comprised of nearly 8,000 pieces & has a nearly 47" high roofline, not including stuff on the roof.

One down (up?), several more to go.  For the moment, however, I'm going to take a break from building towards the ceiling and do a little more work under the tables!

  1. I recently completed my own skyscraper as well, a 10 tier Japanese inspired pagoda (well, I guess only a skyscraper in height), which is very close to the same height (46 7/8 ", not including the spire!).

    I love your videos, your MOCs give me some great building techniques I've never thought of, and your city inspires my to grow mine! I appreciate your family friendly vibe, as I feel comfortable watching with my young sister!

    Keep up the great work!
