GTA 5 Mission - Architect's Plans

Architect's Plans is a main story mission in Grand Theft Auto V, involving protagonist Franklin Clinton.

It's the 63° GTA V mission in chronological order, and it takes place in Los Santos.

Prepare for the Bureau Raid.

Gold Medal Objectives (100%)

The following are the Mission Objectives required to obtain the Gold Medal in the mission "Architect's Plans":

  • Quick Getaway: Leave the construction site within 45 seconds.
    • Parachute from the roof after killing the architect.

Note: You can complete each Gold Medal requirement in multiple playthroughs of the mission. You don't need to obtain them all in one single playthrough.

Architect's Plans - Mission Details:

Michael leaves Darnell Bros and is called by Franklin, who has tailed Chip Peterson to the Mile High Club construction site in Downtown Los Santos. Play then switches to Franklin. 

Peterson starts walking through the construction site and Franklin carries on following him. A site guard shouts to Franklin, telling him he needs to wear a hardhat. Franklin puts it on, blending him in more with the workers.

Peterson takes a lift up the side of the construction. Franklin gets in the one next to him so he doesn't look too suspicious. Once on the upper level, Franklin can either kill, knock out or hold Peterson at gunpoint to obtain the briefcase with the files in it.

Once the briefcase is obtained, Franklin heads to Darnell Bros where he, Michael and Lester plan the heist. The options are either set off a fire in the building and show up as the on-call firemen or go in by air.
