Location: Torrington, Staunton Island
Use: Offices
Height: 191,5 m (628,2 ft)

The Morninstar Building is a skyscraper located in Torrington on Staunton Island, Liberty City, just beside in the same block as the Jefferson St. Credit Union building, where they share the same plaza. The building is owned by the Morningstar Industries, as seen on the billboard nearby.

Design

The skyscraper is 191,5 m (628,2 ft) tall, and it'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 skyscraper's name is not official, but taken from it's model file mrngstarbuild. It's similar counterpart, Cleethorpes Tower is found in Grand Theft Auto IV, and both of them are based on the design of real Trump Tower in New York City.

The plaza in front of the Morningstar Building

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 the industrial magnate, the Morning Star Industries. The plaza is a popular place for businessmen to relax during work brakes and enjoy the view towards the ocean.
