The Las Venturas City Planning Department is a municipal government building located near the Come-A-Lot casino in southeastern Las Venturas. This is the main setting of the mission Architectural Espionage, and is only accessible to the player during this mission. Blueprints for major building sites are contained within these offices, which are closely watched by guards carrying pistols. Photography within this building is strictly prohibited, as are unconcealed weapons.
The clock behind the receptionist reads and stays at 7:35, even though time moves at one minute per second of real-time in the game. The "First Aid" room on the third floor does not contain a life-restoring power-up nor a bulletproof vest, as some players are led to believe by the signage of the door. Therefore, the only way to replenish your health in this building is by buying snacks from the snack machines for $1 each.
- The second floor's storeroom is destroyed by a fire caused by Carl Johnson as a diversion so that he can photograph the blueprints for Caligula's Casino.
Guard: Put that weapon away, sir, this is a public building!
(After a few moments of not putting it away) This is your last warning, sir. Put that weapon away!
- On the top floor blueprints of Starkweather's Estate from Manhunt can be seen.
