The Las Venturas City Planning Department is a municipal government building featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Located near the Come-A-Lot casino in southeastern Las Venturas, the building, as its name implies, is the headquarters for Las Venturas' urban development. The building houses blueprints for several of the city's buildings, and is patrolled by armed security guards. Because of this, photography and the carrying of unconcealed weapons is prohibited within the building.

There is a clock behind the reception in the lobby, which reads and stays at 7:35.

There is a first aid room on the third floor, though no health or armour pickups are located in the room.

The building is only accessible during the mission Architectural Espionage. The player can also enter the building via the Hidden Interiors Universe.



  • In several rooms on the top floor, the blueprints of Starkweather's Estate from Manhunt can be seen.
  • If the player manages to enter the building in free roam, there will be random pedestrians seen working on computers in the second floor. Sometimes some of them will stop working temporarily and begin to walk around, then they will sit down in front of another computer desk and continue working.
    • Also, if the player attains a high wanted level while inside the department, police officers can still spawn and attack Carl. This is confirmed in the PC version.
  • The Caligula's blueprint can only be seen in Architectural Espionage. The player can not see the blueprint if they enter the building during free roam.
