Wow, not gonna lie I didn't expect such a swift response
Hmm... Toad's Turnpike always was quite a simple looking track, but I fully support your idea to add buildings to the background for decoration. It's definitely what the track needs in order to increase its visual appeal! However I think it'd be all too easy to go overboard with stuff that could be added, keeping a fair degree of simplicity is in-keeping with this track's design. With that said, I think a few minor additions like streetlights, MAYBE animated textures on signs (though you would ofc need to release a _d version of the track if you were to take this course of action), or even some boost pads to add to the strategy here (Nintendo added extra boost pads to DS Waluigi Pinball and Wii Mushroom Gorge for MK7 for this reason).
These alone would in my opinion give the track all it needs to become an instant hit :D I can't wait to play it!
