The GCPD Headquarters is a municipal building which serves as the main administrative location and base of operations to the Gotham City Police Department.
The GCPD HQ was built in 1899 and was located at the junction of the area called Five Points, on the lower East Side of Gotham. The building was erected over an entire underground cellar, which was connected to the cities sewer system by an extensive network of tunnels. The cellar served as a prison in ancient times, but after several escape attempts, the place was locked down and never used again. Eventually, some parts of the cellar were transformed into a safe bunker, to hold people inside during emergencies.
Gotham City Police Headquarters is located at the junction of the area called Five Points on the lower east side of Gotham City. The main building was first constructed in 1899. It was part of Old Gotham, an architectural scheme for Gotham City designed by Cyrus Pinkney and promoted by Judge Solomon Wayne.
It was left vacant for years in the 1900's when the Gotham City Police Department moved to a newer building. The GCPD returned to it after the modern one was imploded. The old building was destroyed in the earthquake that shattered the city.
