The Residential Zone Landmark is a Pedestrian Areas Landmark unique building from the Cities: Skylines Plazas and Promenades DLC.
To unlock it, you’ll need a couple things:
- In a pedestrian area with residential focus, have 2,000 residents living in residential buildings on pedestrian streets
- Reach the Tiny Town milestone (360 – 1,500 population, depending on the map)
Once you’ve accomplished these tasks, you’ll be able to build the Residential Zone Landmark from the Pedestrian Areas Landmarks tab of the Unique Buildings menu for ₡80,000.
Until then, hovering over its silhouette in the menu will show you your progress towards unlocking it.
Below is a step-by-step for creating a residential focused pedestrian area for the unlock:
Creating a Pedestrian Area with Residential Focus
Step #1: Paint the Pedestrian Area
Go to the Districts and Areas menu, and use the Paint Pedestrian Area tool to mark your area on the map.
Step #2: Build a Service Point
Your pedestrian area will need a service point in order to work.
Build a small pedestrian area service point from the Pedestrian Areas tab of the Parks and Plazas menu.
Service points allow the buildings in your pedestrian area to receive cargo deliveries and get their garbage collected despite being built on pedestrian-only streets.
Step #3: Build Pedestrian Streets
You’ll find a variety of pedestrian streets in the Pedestrian Areas tab of both the Parks & Plazas menu and the Roads menu.
You can also have regular roads (ones that allow vehicles) going through your pedestrian area.
But remember that your residential zones will need to be along pedestrian-only streets for this unlock.
Step #4: Zone Residential
For your newly created pedestrian area to be designated a residential focused one, you’ll need at least 150 squares of residential zoning.
You can use either low-density or high-density residential zoning for this.
From there it’s basically a matter of waiting for 2,000 residents to move in to unlock the landmark.
Tip #1: You’ll Need Demand for Residential Zoning
Since the unlock requires a certain number of residents to move in, you’ll need to have residential demand.
The green bar indicates residential demand.
If there’s no residential demand, make sure your industrial/office demand (orange bar) isn’t too high.
A very high demand for industry or office indicates a lack of workplaces, which will make people hesitant to move in.
Tip #2: Try to Level Up Your Residential Buildings
It’s a good idea to get the residences in your pedestrian area to level up, especially if you’re working with limited space.
That’s because higher level residential buildings can house more people per building compared to lower level ones.
Provide access to educational facilities and services (fire, police, healthcare), and don’t skimp on leisure buildings such as parks and plazas.
This will help if you’re struggling to reach 2,000 residents but don’t want to keep expanding your pedestrian area (or don’t have the space).
