Project Highrise – MARCH 2016 Architect's Notes


When it comes to getting things done, we need fewer architects and more bricklayers. -Colleen C. Barrett

In previous notes, we’ve met workers who will help you build and run your tower – such as construction workers and service workers. Today we’d like to introduce you to your management team – the consultants who will assist you with various aspects of building management and improvement.

Good building management is key to becoming a highly prestigious, sought-after address. To project an aura of sophistication and modernity, and to improve the aesthetics of your building, you will want to hire an interior designer who has the right connections with all the right galleries. Good relations with City Hall will also prove invaluable, and you should hire a lobbyist who has the ear of City Hall to arrange for certain lucrative concessions or exceptions from pesky city regulations. Finally, you should optimize your building through experienced building management. From hiring more construction workers to increasing service capacity, a good building manager can make things in your building happen more efficiently and with greater speed.


Building managers managing a building.

These consultants are essentially management mercenaries. But while they’ll work for cash, they won’t work for just anyone. In Project Highrise, you need to prove that you have enough cachet to attract them and their services. In other words, you need to have influence.

So, how do you get it? Influence comes from having important tenants in your building, such as big corporations or rich residents, and keeping them happy. The more important tenants you have, the more influence you will have, which in turn will make your building an attractive place for consultants to ply their trade. Once you have the right management team in place, you can then begin to parlay your accumulated influence into various building improvements, amazing artworks, or valuable exemptions to city regulations.
