500 Fifth Avenue sm

500 Fifth Avenue building in Midtown Manhattan.

SC3000 - Corporate Ground Zero Plaza

Corporate Ground Zero Plaza as it appears in SimCity 3000 and its updated version

The Corporate Ground Zero Plaza is a growable Commercial building that appeared for the first time in SimCity 3000. It also appeared in SimCity 3000: Unlimited (known as World Edition in some places), an updated version of the previous game. It is the second tallest 4x4 growable Commercial building in both games (not including other building sets from Unlimited -European and East Asian sets), only surpassed by the Quigley Insurance. The other 4x4 skyscrapers are the Quigley Insurance and Gray Matter Place

This building has a striking resemblance to the 500 Fifth Avenue, an Art Deco skyscraper built in 1931 located in New York City.

Despite not being in SimCity 4, it can be considered an High Wealth building. In order for it to grow, the land value must be "Very High" or "Astronomical". Once the building is constructed, the land value must stay at or above "High", otherwise the building will become abandoned.

Note: It is possible that Wren Insurance replaced the Coporate Ground Zero Plaza due to their similarites but it is unconfirmed.
