First tower

The first tower was built by Cyborg's father, Dr. Milas Stone after his son's accident. It was sited on an island in the East River, New York City. This tower was used as the headquarters for the team throughout the The New Teen Titans and New Titans series. At one point it was destroyed by Trigon, but rebuilt to Dr. Stone's design with some enhancements. It was eventually and ultimately destroyed by the Wildebeest Society and, owing to the Titans having fallen out of favor with the authorities, not rebuilt.

Second tower

The second tower was built in the same location by Cyborg himself in the JLA/Titans miniseries. It was not an actual tower, but a hologram, with the real headquarters far beneath the ground. This was done to confuse supervillains and to keep them from attacking the real base. It was the team's base during the 19992002 Titans series, before being destroyed by a villain named Epsilon. This incarnation of the team disbanded before the headquarters could be rebuilt.

Third tower

The current Titans Tower is located in San Francisco Bay.

Memorial

The current tower houses a memorial for fallen Titans. It contains statues of almost all of the dead Titans, including those who had served with the team very briefly.

Angered at himself not having a statue (despite inclusion of other brief Titans such as Kole), he destroyed Donna Troy's statue. In issue #30, Jericho's statue was destroyed likewise. Ironically, both of these characters had returned from the dead in one way or another since the current series began.
