The districts that comprise the Corp Zone have the highest concentration of wealth and security in Night City. The corporate police are courteous, well trained and well equipped. Even entering the corp zone requires ID checks and body-scans - usually replicated again at the actual entrance to whatever corp you are visiting. Beyond that, many of the larger corps keep actual corporate troops on hand.

Corporate Plaza is a circular ornamental park space surrounded by towering skyscrapers. Only the very wealthiest and most influential corporations can afford to build their headquarters directly in Corporate Plaza, a sign of raw power and prestige. Many others make do with renting floorspace within the skyscrapers of other corps.

Most of the structures in Corporate Plaza are hardened to military levels, and sport a variety of concealed weapons and sensors. Looming over it all is Arasaka Tower, a pair of joined towers coated in black glass, and sporting a discrete corporate mon at the plaza level.

For those that can't make it onto the hallowed ground of the plaza, the Corp Centre is the next best thing. This is a crowded and bustling business centre, with excellent transit links and relatively little crime. There is also expensive housing, shopping and entertainments. Corp Centre is where most of the city's day-to-day business is done, and the majority of the executives in the city work there.

Bank block is mainly composed of older structures, but built with a sense of quality and durability. This is the financial capitol of the city, and even the corps tread more lightly around the banks. Its home to the NC stock exchange, although very few people feel the need to physically visit the site - the vast majority do their transactions over the Net. Security here is much more discrete and soberly dressed, but that doesn't mean it is any worse.

West Hill is an area of luxury corporate housing, shopping and entertainment. Security here is somewhat lower internally, but getting in is very tricky if you aren't on the list. West Hill Gardens is the most exclusive apartment complex in the city, while Pinewood Bazaar is a subterranean shopping centre for the wealthy. The area has a good deal of well-sculpted greenery, and also boasts an artistic community.
