The Triskelion

The Triskelion was built along the Potomac River on Theodore Roosevelt Island as an enormous complex that occupied almost all of the island. Its central structure was composed of three tall, thin, columnar buildings supporting a shared circular top floor. After completion, the Triskelion served as the primary headquarters of S.H.I.E.L.D. and housed many of its agents and operations. It was severely damaged after an Insight Helicarrier veered into one of its columns during the HYDRA Uprising.

-Project Insight Hangar: The Triskelion contained three hidden Helicarrier bays below the Potomac that were used for Project Insight.
-Control Rooms: The Triskelion has several control rooms to carry out missions as well as control Project Insight
-Heli Pad/Launch Bays: Both on and outside of the structure itself, helipads and Quinjet launch bays had been built on the Island.
-Main Atrium: There was a main atrium as well as many operation rooms.
-Personal Offices: It contained Director Nick Fury's office as well the chambers of the World Security Council, which included Alexander Pierce's office. Presumably several other high ranking members had offices in the building.
-Security Protection: The Triskelion was a high-security facility, and certain parts were only accessible to agents with the proper Clearance Level.
