Now that everyone here has seen the trailer, it is evident that many building from the old Los Santos will be returning.

Which building would you like to see return?


Some confirmed from the trailer include:

Los Santos tower:

is that really the observatory? I always imagined that area was where the guy who was jumping off the cliff at Verdant Bluffs was calling from

Seeing a redone Madd Ddog's mansion would be pretty sweet.

Yeah, that's definitely the observatory.

Many people will want to see a hi-def Grove Street cul-de-sac backed by the Los Santos (concrete) river, just for old time's sake. I think that was mentioned in other threads.

I will surely think of more later, but some places that come to mind are Union Station (and the trains), the cabin on the lake where you met the mysterious government guy,improved, hi-def versions of the fancy hillside houses including the Stahl House and (as mentioned) an interior of a place like Madd Dog's mansion.

Another thing is to have the row of beach houses just north of the Pleasure Pier (Santa Monica Pier) when CJ had a safehouse. Even the crude GTA-SA representation of that area felt like the real place. It would look so good in hi-def.

Los Santos International Airport, with the iconic arched restaurant (hopefully enterable) would be great. I woudl also like to see a full scale terminal loop in the airport, probably with the parking garages in the center of the loop.

A re-imagined version of Mad Dog's Mansion would be amazing, especially if it wasv a useable safehouse in the game!

The things I would like to see back/redone:

Los Santos-
International Airport- Enterable terminal and book flights with check-in people instead of outside the airport. Also made modern and redone.
Madd Dogg Mansion- Have it as a safehouse and the garages open to store cars in, also a redone interior making it even better.
Grove Street- Carl and Sweets gang, Grove Street should stay how it was.

San Fierro
Bridges- The bridges should stay with the same structure but redone modernized.

Las Venturas
Abandoned Air Strip- The old abandoned airstrip should be kept and maybe even usable as a safehouse with the AC Tower (where you walk in to save) should be redone and made bigger.

Expect lots of them back, since LS in SA was more accurate to LA than LC in III was to NYC.
But I hope we see some direct homage, perhaps a reference to CJ's house. Or a narrow alley with a lone bicycle standing there.

Grove Street obviously, i wanna go back to the hood! and may i suggest that you try and get screenshots of the buildings from the V trailer, just to compare and show that they're there from San Andreas.

I would like a return of Mt Chilliad or some sort of reference to it. Also Area 69 has to be in the game so we can steel whatever project they are currently developing. Remember this game is 20 years ahead of San Andreas, technology has greatly improved. biggrin.gif

Well, i made a thread shortly after the trailer release and compared some screencaps from trailer with San Andreas.

(Obviously not just buildings)

I really expect that a lot of buildings and landmarks from San Andreas will make a return.. in a freshly and new designed way of course.

What happened to the Gas Company Tower? It was in GTA SA yet it is nowhere in sight in V, instead there is some weird generic building.

Such a shame, quite an iconic building. So weird that they got rid of it.

Mixed with the Mellon Bank to make a new building (same colors).

I missed it too. A missing building is even more noticeable in Los Santos than in Liberty City, as most of highrises are all concentrated in Downtown, while in Liberty they are all around the city.

I'm curious about how they'll make the LAX, the Convertion Center, the Watts Towers, and the LA River. And if they'll add a parody of Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Looks more like the illegitimate child of the Mellon Bank Center and the AT&T Building from Nashville if you ask me.

We need something to bring back the memories. They really need to think outside the box and not do what they did with GTA IV.

Those buildings are "returning" because they're actually in LA.

Pretty much every place I liked in Los Santos were confirmed in the trailer and then some. I really want to check out the refurbished Vinewood sign.

I can't wait to see these on RAGE with awesome 2012 graphics. They even looked epic in San Andreas.
