What Is the Mile High Club in GTA V?

The Mile High Club in GTA V is a site of great interest in Los Santos. The construction site for this building is sprawled across Pillbox Hill. It is bordered by Alta Street, Power Street, Vespucci Boulevard, and Adam's Apple Boulevard. The building is being constructed amidst the hustle and bustle of the vibrant city of Los Santos.

This building site is actually the second tallest in Los Santos. The tallest one is the Maze Bank Tower. The Mile High Club is also a place where you can parachute jump, with two parachutes available for use.


The Mile High Club is Built by STD Contractors

The inspiration behind the Mile High Club is likely inspired by a hotel building in L.A Live, Los Angeles. Built by STD Contractors, the skyscraper has a crane on the top, which is accessible to players via a ladder climb.

This company is led by contractor Enzo Bonelli, who oversees its construction. The main architect for this structure is Chip Peterson, while Even Architecture and Design handle the interiors.

STD Contractors introduce the Mile High Club as "Downtown's newest and most exciting complex" in their ads.


Mile High Club Trivia

The following is some trivia related to the Mile High Club:

  1. The "Mile High Club" typically refers to people having sex on airplanes. While GTA V's Mile High Club doesn't involve flying, the name alludes to the same hookup culture in the raunchy game of GTA V.

  2. There are some wooden beams near the top of the Mile High Club that aren't solid. Players can pass through them, allowing them to discover hidden shortcuts in the game.

  3. In the Race and Chase arcade games set in the late 1980s, you can spot the Mile High Club in the Los Santos skyline. It's still under construction but many believe it is a reference to the ongoing joke about the tower never being finished.
