Standing Vice Point in GTA Vice City.

Standing Vice Point refers to a building complex of two massive towers in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, situated in southern Vice Point, at the border with Washington Beach.

During the events of GTA Vice City it has a minor role in the storyline. However in GTA Vice City Stories it would become the second setting of the mission Unfriendly Competition for the Mendez Brothers.

Standing Vice Point is located up on a hill and is the first building going south of the Malibu Club and the first building going north from the Washington Beach Police Station. The entire complex consists of two structures: A single tower to the north, and a taller terraced structure to the south; the main entrance is only seen at the northern wing. The back of the building is a point of interest. It features numerous tables, palm trees, bushes, and a sloped pool with a series of diving boards in order of size from smallest to biggest. It also has a boardwalk in the back leading to the beach. These features imply that Standing Vice Point functions as either a hotel, an upscale apartment, or both.

Due to the earlier setting of GTA Vice City Stories, certain features in the building have yet to be constructed or put in. The large glass dome appearing between the pool and leisure area and the backside of the building is still under construction, and some smaller details such as ladders, and Sprunk machines are visible.

The building includes at least two red signage displaying its name, one at the base of the northern tower, and another on top of it. A stone pillar has also been included at the main entrance, displaying a large yellow S logo, presumably denoting the "Standing" portion of the building's name. In GTA Vice City Stories, these features are absent.

Vehicles

GTA Vice City
  • BF Injection: Up north beside the boardwalk running behind the structure.
  • PCJ-600: In a corner of the building at the south end. Automatically starts PCJ Playground.
GTA Vice City Stories
  • Quad: Can be purchased at the entrance of the boardwalk coming up to the pool.

Pickups

GTA Vice City
  • Body Armor: In front of the large rock in the front of the building.
  • One Rampage: On top of the largest diving board behind the building.

Glitch

In GTA Vice City Stories there is a glitch involving a large tree and the wall towards the back. This glitch will cause you to run through the wall and end up outside of the walled-in area. To do this go to the gate leading down to the beach. When you're there locate the biggest tree just north of it. When you find it, run in between the wall and the tree to where your facing the wall. If done right you will end up on the boardwalk.

Trivia

  • Standing Vice Point is a unique building, as it is the point where Ocean Drive and Washington Avenue end.
  • In both games, there is a sign that says "Don't pee in our pool" along with a picture of yellow water.
