It is located in Hillwood, northeast of Empire Bay. Named after Peter Zavesky, it has a planetarium inside, and the outside features a picturesque park with a view of the city. There is also an older, abandoned observatory located nearby. The construction costs were funded by Carlo Falcone, who's known as a generous benefactor with an apparent love of astronomy.
The facility is the setting for the final mission in Mafia II in which Vito Scaletta kills Carlo Falcone and his men on orders from Leo Galante in order to make up for the war he started with the Triads.
- The observatory is based on the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA.
