Believe it or not, I think I know what Stefan's getting at with his Arcology
Corp. I don't know about Shadowrun, but in Iron Crown's Chicago Arcology
there's a similar set-up.

The Arcology was built by New Edison and houses various offices and living
space for employees. It's also attached to a mall. The mall is run by the
Valris Foundation, another corp whose only job is to run the mall effectively.
They are not affiliated with New Ed otherwise. This leads to interesting
political battles at the top because Valris is looking out for Valris, not New
Ed. In the book, Valris is depisted as pretty greedy and evil compared to New
Ed, but New Ed described elsewhere as Big Bad Corp-the Space Nazis of the

You could 'expand' on the background, making up an outside corp to fulfill the
role of Valris if you like. I suggest reading through Corp Shadowfiles if
you can get ahold of it-Ed or Steve probably have it.
