My group is almost done with the Lost Mines of Phandelver and looking at settling down. There is sure to be an explosion of growth.

Can someone recommend a set of assets for buildings and such structures to build a town/city?

I create my maps in CC3+ (www.profantasy.com), so I use those assets. A couple of sources I use for other assets include;
- You can find more assets is you Google CSUAC
- www.cartographersguild.com

Thank you. I will check them out. I have CC3+ but was disappointed in the assets. Found an artist On DeviantArt I really like but he is a devout D20 roller. Wish he would see the light. I guess I could make my own but I already have a fest hall to design and remake Tresendar Manor.

It depends how detailed you want to get and what assets you actually want. CC3+ (with City Designer) will allow you to make high level settlement plans.

Here's an early effort I did: https://www.cartographersguild.com/album.php?albumid=3460&attachmentid=41424

Some of the annuals have some great city styles. Like the Jonathan Roberts style: http://www.profantasy.com/annual/2012/march12.html
Or Alyssa Faden: http://www.profantasy.com/annual/2016/september16.html

Heroic Maps (linked by Nickademus above) have a lot of excellent settlement maps, in great detail (remember to keep total image size and dimensaions down when using in FG).
