The WTF Center in GTA IV, as viewed to the northeast from the mouth of the West River.

The WTF Center is a complex of buildings in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, located in Castle Garden City, on the island of Algonquin in Liberty City.

Description

Prominently depicted with three modern buildings with near-identical facades (two of which are skyscrapers), and a greenhouse-like atrium between the WTF Center's two towers, the WTF Center complex is clearly based on Manhattan's World Financial Center, specifically consisting of recreations of Two World Financial Center, Three World Financial Center, the New York Mercantile Exchange and the Winter Garden Atrium. None of the WTF's center's buildings are accessible, although the interior of the atrium, while obscured, is still visible.

Located on a shoreline, the WTF Center is fronted by a marina where multiple boats typically spawn. A miniature outdoor garden is also located on the southern end of the complex.

The "WTF Center" name is derived from the signage of the northernmost building's northern parking entrance.

Trivia

  • The name of the complex is an obvious reference to the abbreviation of "what the fuck" commonly used in Internet lingo, as well as the World Financial Center's "WFC" abbreviation.
  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, a parachute spawn can be found on top of the dome-crowned skyscraper.
