City Center is the showcase of Night City. It's hard to believe that a few decades ago it used to be a smoldering battlefield after the 4th Corporate War and the nuclear attack on Arasaka Tower. Restoration of the district was a lengthy and costly process — it started in the 2030s and ended just recently, when the Arasaka Tower was rebuilt in the 2070s. Now it is the most fortified and secure part of the city.
Filled with modern, cutting-edge architecture, City Center is where you can witness the unrivaled might of megacorps in all its arrogance. This is where the rich and overworked spend their lives, building Night City's economic power.
The Corpo Plaza is reaching for the sky with its brutalist corporate skyscrapers and blinding floodlights. This is the heart of the district and the address of the biggest corporations such as Arasaka, Militech, Biotechnica, Petrochem, and Kang Tao.
Next to the Corpo Plaza is the Downtown — full of narrow alleys, night clubs, celebrities, and corporate stiffs. Here you'll find an abundance of office buildings and eccentrically shaped architecture — as well as exclusive apartments, hotels, and restaurants. Its northern waterfront is a mecca for artists and snobs, with galleries, concert halls and ateliers around every corner. But despite all its elegance and power, Downtown isn’t always as secure as it seems: turn down the wrong alley and you’ll find yourself en-route to sleazy love hotels, dive bars, and shadowy corners where drug deals — and worse — are a common occurrence.
