In 2552, the City Center, along with every other sector in the city, was closed when the Covenant invaded during the Battle of Earth. The city center was seriously damaged when the High Prophet of Regret's Assault Carrier initiated a Slipspace jump in the city. Immediately after the slipspace event, the city center was occupied by a Jiralhanae-led invasion fleet and was eventually glassed.
The City Center was located at the very heart of New Mombasa, where the city's tallest skyscrapers were located. It is bordered on the southeast by the Tanaga district. In the center was the tallest skyscraper; Vyrant Telecom Tower. It soared to approximately two kilometers in height.[note 1]
