The '''Big Pointy Building''' is the tallest structure in [[San Fierro]], [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]], and is situated at the south end of the city's [[Financial]] district, and stands at a height of 850 feet tall. The tiny roof at its pinnacle is accessible to the player, at which a [[parachute]] spawns in case the urge to leap off should arise. This point provides a 360 degree panoramic view of San Fierro, granting some choice shots to amateur photographers patient enough to wait for the fog to lift.
