|For the safehouse in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, see Portland Safehouse (GTA LCS).|
The Portland Safehouse in Grand Theft Auto III is the first safehouse used in the game.
Used by Claude to "lay low" after escaping from police custody, the safehouse is situated in a back alley in the Red Light District, consisting of one rudimentary living space (featuring a bed, stove, washing machine, microwave and television, and a garage capable of containing up to one moderately sized vehicle). An Eddie's sign can be seen hanging above the garage.
A baseball bat, police bribes, a health pickup, an adrenaline pill, as well as pickups attained by collecting hidden packages are usually sorted within the back alley. Following Big'n'Veiny, stacks of bestiality pornography magazines (presumably a gift from El Burro) appear inside the safehouse.
- The exterior of the Hashbury Safehouse in GTA San Andreas is similar to the Portland Safehouse.
- In the PC and Xbox versions of GTA III two fire escapes and a water tower can be seen on the exterior of the building. These are not present on the PS2 version.
