Not every apartment you can purchase in GTA Online has a heist room so here is a list below of purchasable properties that include one.

You can purchase properties by clicking up on the D-pad to pull up your cellphone. Go to the browser and select Maze Bank Foreclosures. From there you can purchase any property you have the money for:

These properties will allow players to invite their crew over to begin a heist. Simply go to the heist room and select from the available options to begin the setup for the mission.

The Doomsday Heist

The Doomsday Heist is one of two heists in GTA Online that requires a different building to complete the heist. You’ll need to purchase a facility in order to have access to it.

Once you have purchased one of these you will have access to the Doomsday Heist and can invite your squad as normal.

The Diamond Casino Heist

Similar to the Doomsday Heist you’ll need to purchase a separate building to have access to this heist. After getting a call from Lester and meeting him in the park you’ll be told you need to purchase an arcade.

Here is a list of purchasable arcades in GTA Online.

  • Warehouse – $2,135,000

After obtaining one of the arcades listed above you’ll be sent on a few missions to recover arcade cabinets to fix it up. Then you will have to go stake out the Diamond Casino to get some intel.

After that, you’ll be all ready to start the Diamond Casino heist with your friends.
