The Big Pointy Building is the tallest structure in San Fierro, 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.
This structure is meant to emulate San Francisco's Transamerica Pyramid, which sits at the north end of the city's financial district, and is San Francisco's tallest structure, and a well known part of the city's skyline.
According to the signs on the base of the building, the address of the building is 69 Hasselhoff Street, which could be a reference to the Transamerica Pyramid's construction in 1969 and possibly actor David Hasselhoff.
Although this building is seemingly the tallest structure in the whole city, the nearby San Fierro Tower is actually taller, if its antenna height is included. However, the Big Pointy Building is still the tallest building in San Fierro by floor count.
If CJ has completely maxed out his health, he can jump off the building with out a parachute and live.
