The Forum Drive safehouse (also known as the Clinton Residence) is the first safehouse used by protagonist Franklin Clinton in GTA V.


The safehouse is located on Forum Drive, Strawberry, and is unlocked after Franklin and Lamar. Following Franklin's move to 3671 Whispymound Drive, Vinewood Hills after the Hotel Assassination, the safehouse is turned into a 'center for women' by Denise Clinton, and the interior and garage are made inaccessible to the player (PS3/360). In the enhanced version of the game, the garage remains accessible to the player but the house cannot be accessed.


The safehouse is a single-story, 3-room (excluding the kitchen and bathroom) bungalow. The player can save their game in Franklin's bedroom, on the first door to the left of the main entrance. Across the hallway is a small living room with a television that can be interacted with and a supply of weed joints that Franklin can take a hit from. The living room leads on to a small kitchen, where Franklin can drink a beer or collect a first-aid kit. The interior of the house is characterized by retro design and decorated with various spiritual and tribal ornaments and artwork. A garage can be found to the left of the main entrance, which is large enough to store one car and one motorcycle (Franklin's Buffalo S and a Bagger obtained in an early mission spawn in the driveway). When replaying a mission (after beating The Hotel Assassination, depending on the mission if Franklin is by his house), Franklin can enter his house and find his room cleared out (since he moved to Vinewood Hills). Chop can be interacted with behind the house.


Mission Appearances




  • In the kitchen there is a back door leading out to the back yard, which cannot be used.
  • When Franklin has moved to his new safehouse in Vinewood Hills:
    • When switching to Franklin, he may be found driving away from his older safehouse along Forum Drive, suggesting "off-screen" visits. It is possible Franklin was visiting his old house to retrieve some of his left behind items from the move, or to make sure his aunt hadn't done anything to the house.
    • If he returns to the Clinton residence, Aunt Denise's voice can be heard from inside the house, chiding Franklin and telling him to go away. The two may exchange a few words.
    • Denise will send Franklin an e-mail forbidding him from re-entering the house. Once he has replied, Franklin mentions that one of the mistakes that his mother made was giving her the house.
  • The radio station playing inside the house is Radio Los Santos.
