Phoenix Tower is an apartment complex in New Beijing, Eastern Commonwealth, in which Cinder and her step-family lived on the 18th floor, in apartment number 1820. One must swipe their ID chip in their wrist in order to gain access. Its lobby is gray, and decorated solely with a netscreen with announcements for the residents, ie. petitions, missing pets, and price changes. Cinder described it as "a crawling hive - children chasing each other down the corridors, both domestic and stray cats creeping tight against the walls, the ever-constant blur of netscreen chatter spilling from the doorways." The elevator is "loud with the clunking of old machinery."
