To rotate buildings in Cities: Skylines II click and keep pressing the right mouse button on the building of choice. You can then adjust its position by moving the building from left to right. This might feel a bit weird since the building does not lock in place when trying to rotate it. You will see yourself going back on forth until the your building is facing the correct way. Quite a treat to the eyes, to be honest. Whenever you are next to a road, your building will snap in place. You can disable the snapping so you can have more freedom while trying to position your new building.

Correclty positioning buildings will not only favor the aesthetics of your town or city, but it will also impact in your citizens’ overall happiness as well as enabling the correct distribution of water, energy, and waste residuals. There’s nothing worst than building a new power plant, or even a college and have the entrance completely backwards. Personally, in my absolute noobness I ended up building many unnecesary streets to connect to my brand new high schools and hospitals. No wonder my citizens are so prone to overthrow me. Just make your positioning logical and not far from civilziation (unless it is a waste disposal center) and you will have no issues).

Go ahead and try and position your building the right way or in a very new and imaginative way! After all, not all streets need to be perfect squares and rectangles. Although they might as well be due to something called civil engineering. But anyway, make the best with the tools you have and create the best city of your dreams.
