It is based on the iconic Capitol Records Building in Hollywood. The building is a thirteen-story tower and, much like its real-life counterpart, is one of the city's landmarks. It is presumably the corporate office of the Badger Telecommunications company in Los Santos. A flagpole with the American flag attached is located at the top of the building.
In the Enhanced Edition, the cylindrical feature on the roof houses an illuminated, animated sign advertising Badger. It appears to be an outdoor LED display.
