The Empire State Building (unofficial name) is a skyscraper located in Bedford Point, Staunton Island, Liberty City. Although unnamed in the game, it is nicknamed the Empire State Building by players because it appears to be the closest inspiration behind the building's design.
The building is 391 m ( 1 282,8 ft) tall and is the second tallest building in the 3D Universe, the tallest being the Jefferson St. Credit Union building. However, during the events of GTA: Liberty City Stories, the Jefferson St. Credit Union building is under construction, so the Empire State Building is the tallest building during that game.
The building is very tall and slender, appearing to be a mix between the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, both located in New York City. The game's rendition shares a similar facade design as part of the Empire State Building, and is somewhat similar in terms of structural design as the Chrysler Building, with a crowned roof topped with a pinnacle. However, the building's design is somewhat simplified. The design of the upper tower in the game deviates by featuring additional extended layers towards the top, and the roof is shallower than its real-life counterparts.
