I have been asked to turn my Beginning Hoods into "Shopping Districts" so I have done so.
I have also made Old Town into a Shopping District.

Only the playable Sims in all the "Shopping District", there are no townies or NPC in any of these but for Old Town, there are 5 NPC, 3 paper boys, 1 fireman and 1 taxi driver.

To install: (Open for Business Expansion Pack required.)
1. Place the folder B*** for each one that you want into your "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Open For Business\TSData\Res\NeighborhoodTemplate" folder. (This must be placed in the programs folder for it to work.)
Yes you can have all of them attached to any hood you want, it is best if you don't put both same named hood/sub hood together IE: "The Beginning of Pleasantview" (main hood) with "Pleasantview Beginnings" (sub hood), who would want 2 of each in a hood any way.

You will need to use Mootilda's mod "Fix Subhood Selection" to fix subhood selection button: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=420924
No camera mod needed for all but 1 of these Shopping Districts, Pleasantview Beginnings will need a camera mod to use the small island in the upper conner.
