Hi found a workaround for this problem - when you bulldoze the lot it removes a boundary wall near the elevator.  In build mode, with (MOO) just replace the wall and you should be able to place the room /lot.

Sadly today's bugfix patch didn't resolve this issue. Bulldozing Pinecrest apartments still break them.

I was trying to move a new family into an apartment in the eco lifestyle pack and i Bulldozed it in the move in menu. While trying to decorate the apartment i noticed the floors would not place even though it was charging money. Since it was bugged i decided to move them to the other apartments across town and when They moved in the entire apartment was invisible.

I have this exact same issue but i find a work around it. it seems that when you bulldoze pinecrest apartment both 404 & 402 the whole floor sunk to the bottom it certainly need a fix but when i apply a wall on existing wall apartment where the floor is now sunken to the bottom the apartment floor will become visible once again & now i can build in the apartment once again. You just need to apply a wall where there is already an existing wall & the whole apartment will pop back up on the right floor again, very strange but this somewhat fixed it!

 

on 402 apartment the easiest way is to build a wall right next to the lift, once you do that the whole apartment will reappear once again. (refer to attachment picture)

 

on 404 apartment build a wall where the front door is, on the already existing wall itself, the whole apartment should reappear once again. (refer to attachment picture)

 

I hope this helps

I had this same issue on Windows 10 PC after I bulldozed that apartment but was able to fix mine. From Build mode if you redraw the walls both on outer edge and inner rooms it should become playable again. 

 

Initially I only redrew the inner walls cause it looked like outer wall was there with building shell but it would not let me put in flooring as it did not recognize the room. I retraced the outer building wall (also includes wall in middle between it and other apartment) all the way around to apartment and was able to place flooring.

 

I don't work for EA but just letting you know what worked to resolve it in my case, in case it works for others.

 

By the way I used custom draw tool for wall to redraw walls around the apartment shell and to redraw the rooms. Just to clarify that part.

So ... even after the Star Wars pack release this is still a thing. Please, fix this issue, it's so frustrating.

 

I know, there's a workaround by using the hammer tool to remove all furniture and inner walls without break the apartment lot but this should not be the solution for an 40 dollar/euro EP I paid for! It's really frustrating to wait so long for a fix and not to be sure a fix will ever come. Yeah, I'm kind of angry, sad ... and ... tired to give more money into this bugged franchise which turned into a Disney/Star Wars ad ... sorry for the rant.

 

Get back into the real Sims 4 and fix your things, please!
