"…Maybe it wasn’t a place for people anyway. It was a place for things. You make a place for things… things come."
The Clamp Premiere Regency Trade Center and Retail Concourse, commonly referred to as the Clamp Center is a major building in New York City that is owned by the eccentric billionaire Daniel Clamp. It is the location of nearly every scene in Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
It is described by Kate Peltzer as being the largest "smart building" in North America with the latest in security, communications, and climate control. It is also only one part of Daniel Clamp's worldwide business network, which includes construction, sports, finance, and a very popular line of jams and jellies. The Clamp Cable Network is located in the building as well. It is a major tourist attraction, possibly one of the largest in the United States. The building also sells copies of Mr. Clamp's bestselling book, I Took Manhattan, at their newsstand for $19.95. Business normally thrived, but it lost much of its business and almost the building itself when it was savagely overrun by a large amount of malicious and evil little creatures known as Gremlins.
The chaos was soon stopped, however, by Billy Peltzer, Marla Bloodstone, Kate Peltzer, Murray Futterman, Daniel Clamp, and Gizmo the Mogwai. It's currently unknown if the building was demolished or repaired following the gremlin attack.
In real life the Clamp Center is portrayed by 101 Park Avenue
