A satellite view of La Mesa.

La Mesa is an industrial neighborhood in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, located in East Los Santos.


La Mesa is bordered by Mirror Park and East Vinewood to the north, Textile City, Mission Row, Strawberry, and Rancho to the west, Cypress Flats to the south, and Murrieta Heights and El Burro Heights to the east.

Like other neighbourhoods in East Los Santos, La Mesa is primarily an industrial neighbourhood. However, unlike other areas, La Mesa seems to be more developed, possibly as a result of gentrification from nearby Mirror Park. There also seems to be less gang activity as well. La Mesa is still an economically deprived neighbourhood with abandoned factories and warehouses. However, the presence of a Los Santos Customs indicates it is slowly growing out of poverty.

La Mesa mostly consists of a main road that passes straight through it, with a few smaller streets here and there. The main road is north-south, so it can either lead up towards Mirror Park or down to Cypress Flats. La Mesa is located right next to the Los Santos Storm Drain. The other roads in La Mesa can lead to the storm drain or to the outskirts of the city.


La Mesa is likely based on the Arts District in Los Angeles.
