The first ones are most likely renders as opposed to ingame pictures. The last one is ingame and I'd presume it's in Chinatown or the surrounding areas (judging from the floor pattern).

The first official screenshot of GTAIII, taken January 2001.

This is the area where the subway station is. In the Alpha it was much larger and there was no subway station.

 

Here is another view

Damn that looks strange but kinda cool; makes you wonder where the station would have been (or if it had even been implemented at all).

The game sure was a lot brighter and "cleaner" looking in early development. I remember someone posting a comparison picture at this location in the final game, it's a lot grittier now than it was then. It almost looks like Liberty City Stories.

 

Here's the HUD from back then, too.

Looks like the windows were also breakable, unless they're just sh*tty textures.

 

Another old HUD image.

As awesome as it is, it seems a bit weird how we're finding more and more out about III's early development each year.

I found out that the Portland extension was some sort of penitentiary along with a power plant. I'm not sure if it's a power plant or not but one thing's for certain, there should be the penitentiary. I've added some rendered models (plant parts) just for reference.

Is it just me, or does the parking lot at FIA look a lot bigger?

The Dam didn't have any containers and other clutter on it.

Beta Donald Love. Most people didn't know about this. He was skinny and had a white shirt and a pink, striped tie. It is not confirmed yet if it was Donald or not but in the game script there's a character called "Nick Love". Could be DL's beta name.

How'd you get those pictures? Reminds me of what I mentioned earlier about this kind of stuff just popping oddly out of the blue.

Rockstar Games' III wallpapers. The Love Media one had these renders of beta DL on it. It's nice, huh? Such small stuff bringing up so much.

It's not something new but it is something forgotten.

I know this question is probably going to lead to a dead end but who knows, there's probably a glimmer of hope - does anyone know or or have any more pictures of this sort of building? I saw it from one of the early renders and decided to make it myself, and I was wondering if there were any other pictures of the model or if the render was the only picture of it ever.

This is the only mall I'm thinking of.
