The EBM American Division Headquarters is a location featured in the pen and paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020.

Overview[]

The EBM HQ in Night City is the main office for the American division EBM corporation. The architecture is striking, with the cross section of the building resembling a jagged sided square with truncated comers. The exterior is equally interesting, with a latticework of black, tubular girders crossing over the recessed, mirrored windows. At either side of all four flattened comers, glass-walled exterior elevators travel in the first groove formed by the angular walls. There are also interior elevators and stairways. The white EBM logo is prominently displayed on the top stories of all four of the walls formed by the flattened corners.

There is a combination heliport/AV-4 pad on the roof. There is a subterranean parking lot and loading area and ten underground manufacturing levels below that. (The underground levels are in addition to the 112 above ground stories.)

EBM prides itself on its public relations and paternal image, and consequently, there are many public service areas in the building. There is a grand reception area on the ground floor, in the center of a mall-like indoor pavilion. From there, with proper authorization, one may use the interior elevators, which go to the corporate floors and subterranean levels. The exterior glass elevators service only the first eight pavilion floors, the 9th through 15th floor (which are subcontracted out as office space to other businesses), and the rooftop restaurant and observation deck on the 112th floor. They will stop at the intervening EBM floors only if one has the appropriate card-key. The pavilion itself is composed of wide walkways circling the insides of the first eight floors. The fourth side of this enormous, open space is dominated by a huge marble-walled cylinder, encasing the interior elevators, stairwells, building service ducts, and the structural core.[1]

The EBM HQ is situated in Night City's Corporate Center sector of downtown, in the Corporate Plaza district.
