The Jefferson Street Credit Union building is located in Staunton Island in Torrington. Beside the building on the same block is the Morningstar Building and its plaza. The building was partially constructed before 1998, and between 1998 and 2001 it was extended to become the tallest building in Liberty City, surpassing the Empire State Building equivalent. The building is connected with a large commercial building, a property of FCB AMCO Bank. A package is also hidden (behind the figure of space) in Grand Theft Auto III. In 1998, before this skyscraper was completed the unnamed Empire State Building was the highest building before 2001.
Jefferson Street Credit Union
Jefferson Street Credit Union is probably a credit card company or society as the name implies, but also as a bank. The company or society is not well known, but is characterized by having to accommodate the tallest building in the city.
It has been noted many times that the building has similarities to the original World Trade Center Twin Towers, being the tallest building in Liberty City, surpassing that of the Empire State Building equivalent, similarly to the real NYC. However, there is only one tower, and the building is even taller with a 437.6 meter roof, comparing to the North WTC Tower's 417 meter roof. However, there is much speculation about the GTA III beta that the character Darkel who was removed because of the events of 9/11 was going to have the player fly the fully-winged Dodo into these buildings. This also would explain the mysterious disappearance of Donald Love and have potentially caused the buildings to be changed. Some players have even speculated that the building looks as if the Twin Towers were merged together into a single building block.
