Unique buildings

This article is considered accurate for the current version of the game.

Unique Buildings improve cities. Each unique building can only be built once. Unique buildings are divided into six levels which are are unlocked at different milestones, but all require additional conditions to be met (see Unlocking Requirements in the table below), often for a sustained period of time. Some of these conditions are easy to achieve and may be met without deliberate effort, others are much harder. Although most are rewards for good city management and growth, a few require negative conditions to exist in the city; the Lazaret Plaza, for example, can only be unlocked by having an extremely unhealthy populace.

With the Deluxe Edition and when playing on the European Map Theme, several unique buildings called Landmarks are available. These are available from the beginning and have no requirement for milestones. They still have to be unlocked by reaching required conditions.

Once you have unlocked a unique building in one city, you will be able to build it in all other cities, providing you have reached the required milestone.

Monuments are also unique buildings. They are unlocked at the last milestone, but unlocking a monument requires a specific unique building from each level to be built (see Required For).

Custom unique buildings are available on the Steam Workshop, but none of those buildings can unlock any Monuments.
