The Woodworld Building, also known as the Civic Citadel, is a skyscraper featured in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Overview

It is located in City Hall, Algonquin. The building is clearly based on the Woolworth Building in New York City.

The "Woodworld Building" is derived from the static neon signage of the building's main entrances, although the poor quality of the texture illustrating the sign could lead to other possible names. The building is also referred to as the "Civic Citadel" by the game's hard copy map.

Description

Bordered by Diamond Street, Calcium Street, Union Drive West, and Liberty Lane, the Woodworld Building is a large skyscraper presumably built during the early 20th century, distinguishable by its ornate neo-Gothic style facade, use of mansard roofs and a elaborate crown. The building is a major feature of the Lower Algonquin skyline, appearing very much visible from the mouth of the West River, Suffolk, and Star Junction, which is seen when driving southbound on Denver-Exeter Avenue.

The existence of retail businesses implies the building is primarily intended for commercial use, although its proximity with other municipal buildings in the district may suggest city governmental departments may be operating within the building (Kiki works as a public defender in the "Civic Citadel", although it could be implied she actually works at the city hall building).

Additionally, there are jump ramps at the northern and southern sides of the building. Players can execute a stunt jump using these ramps.

Trivia

  • The main entrances of the building bear building number "233", the same as the Woolworth Building (the Woolworth Building's complete street address is 233 Broadway).
  • The building's name, Woodworld Building, is a reference to its real life counterpart's name, Woolworth Building. It is likely the texture bearing the name (the aforementioned neon sign) was simply Photoshopped with several letters changed.
  • A scene taking place inside the building is featured in GTA V's movie "Meltdown".
