Springfield Heights 101: Deluxe Condo, Valet Parking, & Business Center

Hey there Hoppereenos!

With all the New Additions and items added to our games for Springfield Heights, it can be difficult to keep track of what each individual item has to offer you in the game.

In this post, we are going to be taking a look at some of the Buildings that you can Upgrade to not only add to the look of your town, but to also help you with Real Estate Points to unlock even MORE items. Buildings like Deluxe Condos, Valet Parking, and the Business Center.

HOW DO I UNLOCK THE BUILDINGS?

First off, each one of these Buildings will require certain “Unlock” points in the Springfield Heights Questlines. So it will take you some time to get through all the Questlines and Dialog to completely unlock the access to these Buildings. No worries. It is a permanent addition to our games, so you have all the time you need to get to them. No need to rush.

Just take a peek at the Springfield Heights Menu. You will first see the Real Estateico_heights_realestate_lg Requirement to Unlock a Building.

Then once you have reached the Real Estateico_heights_realestate_lg Requirement, it will then show you the Questline Requirement to gain access to the Building.

Now let’s take a look at each of these 3 Buildings, what it will take to Upgrade them, and what you can get out of those Upgrades.

HOW MANY TOTAL OF EACH BUILDING CAN I HAVE?

10 Building Count Down

The Buildings all have a MAX Total of 10 Each. You can keep track of how many you have purchased and how many are left by going to the Springfield Heights Menu and looking at the Counter Icon on the Building.

Deluxe Condo 10 Counter

 


WHY CAN’T I UPGRADE A BUILDING?

There are several requirements you must meet in order to be able to Upgrade your Building Levels.

First thing you need to look for is what you need to Upgrade the Building. If it is a Material from a Location you have not Unlocked into the game yet, you will have to wait until you gain access to the Location and those Materials before you can go any further.

In this Example, I did not have the Coffee Shop Unlocked yet, so I could not get any Latte’s to help with the Upgrade. Due to this, the “Upgrade” button was grayed out.

Deluxe Condo Level Not Enough

You will also see this if you have the Location but your Storage is not high enough to cover the amount. For instance, if the amount was 50 Latte’s and I only had my Latte Storage to 20… I could not Upgrade. There has to be enough room in Storage for the amount Requirements. Tapping on a grayed out “Upgrade” icon will just tell you that you need to gain more Storage in order to Upgrade.

 

If you have a Location Unlocked, enough Storage space to cover the amount of Material you need, but have not earned enough of that Material yet… you will have the option to use your Donuts to process the Upgrade. I would advise highly against this. You will get there eventually and this is here to stay, so save those Donuts for other items that will be better for your game.

Business Center Level Donut Upgrade

 

If you have the Location Unlocked, plenty of Storage space, and enough of the Material you need… you will see the “Upgrade” button turned to Green.

Deluxe Condo Level Upgrade

Tapping on the Green “Upgrade” button will bring up the Confirmation Screen asking you if you are SURE you want to spend the Materials to Upgrade the Building. Tapping on “Yes” will complete the Upgrade.

Deluxe Condo Use Materials Confirmation

 

So if you can’t Upgrade a Building, check out these points:

  1. Do you have the Location Unlocked that makes the Materials?
  2. Do you have enough Storage space for the required amount of Materials?
  3. Do you have enough Materials Collected?

 

You can learn more information about Storage HERE.

There you have it. A break down of 3 of the Buildings you can Upgrade to add to the overall look of your Springfield.

  3. On the Level 4 Deluxe Condo: How does anybody actually get onto that smaller 2nd floor porch? I don’t see a door (it has a door in the other level versions) or a walkway to the other larger porch. And what is that hopper attached to the wall of that porch? (Please don’t tell me they crawl through it and drop down to access the porch …)

    • Interesting question! Upon closer examination, it appears that the walk on that side of the building is actually one of those climbing walls…notice the hand/foot holds scattering around the face of it and the rope dangling down from the roof. So, I guess that, to get to it, one needs to use the rope to rappel down and then the climb back up to the roof to leave it.

      Thanks for pointing that out… Now that I figured it out, it’s actually rather amusing! 😀

      • I don’t get out much, so I thought the foot/hand holds and rope were just decorations…. But you’re right, that’s what it is. Those rich people have too much time on their hands. I guess there must be a trap door on the roof unless they have to swing sideways to the other porch. They must lose more rich people that way!

        Do you get donuts for figuring it out?

  4. Question about the deluxe condo; I bought one extra condo and was upgrading the one I bought, not the original I got from the game, the game wants me to upgrade to level 5, will it count if I upgrade the bought one and not the original? Or will it still be in my task box?
    Any help will be grateful, thanks!

  5. I didn’t play for a few months and am playing again…I don’t like the monorail event so am not joining it but love the Springfield heights expansion. Do you by chance know how I can buy building etc to place in this area? I can’t find them in the build menu and I can only buy the buildings when there is a task for it like “buy valet parking.” Then at that time I don’t buy it right away and place as many buildings as possible because I cannot find it again later! And when I click the reality building and click ? It shows me that there are ways to exchange the goods for buildings but nowhere can I find how to do it without a task. Thanks in advance for ur help.

    • Let’s get you acquainted with The Heights area first. I am going to link you to the main hub of posts. Start going through them to get a feel… it will be the best way to answer a LOT of questions at once. Then… see if there are still things you are trying to understand and we will go from there. 😉

        • The way it was worded is you were asking for the basic “How To” of the area since you hadn’t played for a while, so that’s why I offered the posts. Those post links also cover each individual item and area that you are looking for information on. Where each one unlocks, how to get MORE of them, how to get any of them in general.

          As the question was kind of vague… I offered an overall “answers” to the entire area. 😉

  6. Have you noticed that valet parkings actually increase in size when you upgrade them to level 5? Not sure about condos or business centers, but valets definitely do. If you have placed several next to each other, they will remain there (each slightly overlapping with the next), but when you select them they will turn red, and if you move one of them you’ll never be able to put it back where it was!

    Another odd glitch: haven’t checked other plants/decorations, but you can also place the “fancy gold trees” with a one-row overlap between them, as if they occupied only one square rather than 4.

  9. So I know there has been an issue with disappearing SH buildings while in storage…and this just happened to me but, I also got 2 EXTRA BC’s. So I’m assuming as long as I don’t place them in storage, will I have 12 BC’s forever? Also any rumor if there will be a patch for this issue? We do get extra real estate value I guess from this glitch!

  14. I haven’t been on for awhile (quelle horreur, i know), so i am sorry if this has already been mentioned…..

    I really like the un-upgraded versions (and each level) of the new buildings. I would like it if once the buildings were level 5, that we could chose which version to display (a la that super hero statue mausoleum thing or Christmas lights). Any way to suggest that to EA? Or am I the only one who feels this way?

    Since we are limited to 10 of each type of building, i plan on keeping 2 at each level for variety.

  16. I just saw something that I had not seen before – my level 5 business center went from having blue windows to having gold ones (as if lit from the inside), displaying animations of the people inside (like the lady using the copier machine). Also, the landing lights on the helipad up top are now animated. I compared it to my other level 5 business center, which is still as before. I believe that this animation is just a temporary random thing, like when an unseen citizen rides a Krustyland ride and causes it to briefly animate. I’m assuming that this was a change that came with the recent update patch…

    I’ve never liked house farms in my Springfield, because I always thought of that town as being “organic,” like most off the towns in the east coast. But I’m treating Springfield Heights as a “developed” town, like the one my mother-in-law lives in in Texas, where most of the houses are in fancy developments and have a similar (but not necessarily identical” look to one another) and each development has a name.

    So my town has a Springfield Heights Promenade development (named for the promenade that runs through it), which is all made of the condos in various stages, and a Springfield Park development, which has the classic mansions in it. I don’t consider them house farms, because the have walkways and such (they’re not just a bunch of buildings crammed together for money-making purposes).

    The modern mansions will go in the more “downtown” area, and probably won’t be the same kind of enclosed development as the others (aside from everything else, the game only provides two types of labeled entrance days – Springfield Heights Promenade and Springfield Park – so there’s no way to pot them in a named development).

    • You definitely have one of the best looking SH. I was still working out my design concept when I changed strategy thanks to LJ’s XP multiplier notice. It’s a real puzzle on how to make this area attractive and make scale look cohesive (I wanted my mansion row to relocate but their houses are miniscule next to the SH upgradeables). Good Job. I’ll figure mine out eventually.

      • Me? Really?? Thanks!!! 😀

        I don’t know to to do “fancy” stuff, and I’m not always as good at thinking “out of the box,” like one of my neighbors who made a “super mansion” by shoving a while bunch of classic mansion main buildings up against each other (an idea I’m using a version of for my modern mansions), but I do try to give it some thought and a certain level of “realness.”

        At any rate, your comment just made my day! 🙂

  19. You should probably also note that having these buildings placed in your town gives you a hidden XP bonus.
    – Deluxe Condo – 1% each
    – Business Center – 2% each
    – Valet Parking – 3% each

    And then for the mansion posts later:
    – Classic Mansion – 4% each
    – Modern Mansion – 5% each

    This doesn’t show up in the Conform-o-meter and doesn’t effect cash.
    If you have all 50 buildings placed in your town it gives you a 150% boost to your XP earning which for me is more than double what I was getting as a freemium player with very few premium decorations. Which means I can get level up donuts twice as quickly!

    I’d built ten each of all five buildings and bunged them in storage

    I’ve moved some of them out back into Springfield Heights as I’m redesigning my town and some of my classic and modern mansions disappeared out of my inventory. The upgraded parts are still there so I’ve had to rebuild the main buildings

    Anybody else had this problem? They were only level 2, but it’s cost me resources to rebuild them and then upgrade them again
