Once the home of the less fortunate and other outsiders at the fringe of society,
taken away from them by the few of the rich upper-class,
collaborating with state and city authorities,
to forcefully push through their interests.
A security risk, a lost investment opportunity.
However, those times have long passed. The tower has been reclaimed,
as has much of the city since the crash of the neolib capitalist economy.
Nowadays, the tower once more provides some basic form of shelter
and securities of a lose social group for the few who managed
to arrange themselves with the situation in the cold
walls of the core.

The idea was to capture its rougher and darker times ported into a possible future.
