Description

Skyscraper

The plaza on the east side of the Morningstar building in GTA III, prominently featuring a transparent star-shaped sculpture. Note also the Morningstar logo over an entrance into the Morningstar building.

Standing 191.5 m (628.2 ft) high and based on the Trump Tower in New York City, the building's floor plan is a truncated rectangle where one of the corners form a stepped garden. It has glass panel façade which gives it overall blue colour. When seen from far away, it practically seems invisible as it visually blends, with it's similar façade and small height, with the much larger Jefferson St. Credit Union building. Above the entrance, there is a white star logo, similar to the sculpture on the plaza in front.

The building is directly across the street from a local subway station on the western side.

Plaza

The signature plaza in front of the building contains steps encircling the denivelated plateau with the prominent transparent sculpture of a star (actually two blended triangular prisms), probably the "Morning Star", a logo of Morning Star Industries.

Trivia

In Saints Row The Third, a GTA clone released 10 years after GTA III, there is an enemy gang called the Morningstar that also occupy a skyscraper.
