Gta-mysteriesAdded by Gta-mysteries

The Hyman Condo is a residential tower block in Downtown, Vice City, prominently used in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City as the player's safehouse.

Description Edit

Located on the northwestern corner of Downtown Vice City, the condo is presumably named after the nearby Hyman Memorial Stadium, which is only located down the road to the west of the condo. The building is identifiable by its C-shaped upper structure, green and white facade, and a relatively well decorated rooftop (complete with a helipad, a satellite dish, and various other roof equipment). The name Hyman is possibly a play on Hymen, a part of the female anatomy, in keeping with Rockstar's humor.

In GTA Vice City, the player may purchase the safehouse for $14,000 after unlocking mainland Vice City following Phnom Penh '86; the condo is actually available for purchase from the start as it's only a matter of being able to venture into the mainland using unconventional means. After purchase, the condo becomes a save point for the player. In addition, the player will have access to the condo's three garages, the western garage being capable of storing up to four cars, while the two garages to the east can store up to two cars each; storing more than the permitted numbers of vehicles will result in some of the stored vehicles disappearing. The player will also gain access to the building's rooftop, which helipad may spawn a Maverick (even before the player purchases the safehouse); hidden package weapons and items rewards will spawn on the roof, as is a change of clothes to Tommy's Street outfit.

In conjunction with the condo's features in GTA Vice City, the driveway contains a police bribe, a Molotov Cocktail spawn at the Tacopalypse restaurant to the east of the safe house, and a dead end alleyway to the south contains a hidden package pickup. The exit to the east is partially blocked off with fold-up barricades, however these can be destroyed by driving through them at high speed.

GlitchEdit

  • A glitch specific to the original PS2 version involves hidden package rewards. Only weapons gained before you buy the condo will appear at the safehouse, to have all of the weapons at the safehouse, wait until you have collected at least 70 hidden packages before buying the condo.
  • Another glitch can sometimes occur when you enter the Maverick on the roof, if any cops are around the area on the street below, you'll still end up getting a 1-star wanted level for getting in the helicopter, even if you do own the Hyman Condo.

TriviaEdit

  • The condo is one of only two properties that can carry the most amount of cars in the 3D Universe (The other property being the Sunshine Autos location), being capable of carrying 8.
  • As weapons are delivered to here, Hyman Condo could be considered as 1 of 3 Tommy's hideouts, beside Ocean View Hotel and Vercetti Estate.
  • It is a good idea to buy this safehouse when doing the Love Fist missions and also store robberies in Downtown.
  • Other than piloting the Hunter helicopter or driving the Rhino, Hyman Condo is the best place to do some mayhem. This is because it offers a long narrow passage way where police can't enter (unless the player strays too close to the main street) and is easily guarded. The garages offers a nice shelter from helicopters in case the player has no weapons to shoot it down. The save point is an easy "checkpoint" to save the criminal points and the roof has weapons and armor spawns from collecting the hidden packages.
