The building and its adjacent construction site occupy an entire block between Alta Street, Power Street, Vespucci Boulevard and Adam's Apple Boulevard in Pillbox Hill, Downtown Los Santos. The construction site is located just next to the Pillbox South Station of Los Santos Transit.
It has a construction crane attached to it that the player can climb using the ladder. Even though it is not yet completed, The Mile High Club is the second tallest structure in Los Santos, only surpassed by the Maze Bank Tower. According to the description of the Construction Bail parachute jump in Grand Theft Auto Online, the top of the construction site is at an altitude of 880 ft.
The company building the complex is STD Contractors. Its contractor is Enzo Bonelli and its architect is Chip Peterson. The construction company describes the Mile High Club as "Downtown's newest and most exciting complex" and promises commercial and business space at low rates.
The skyscraper is based on the JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotel building that is a part of L.A. Live, which was under construction from 2007 until early 2010. However, the Mile High Club appears taller and closer to the center of the city's skyline than its real-life counterpart. It could also be influenced by the Wilshire Grand Tower, another supertall skyscraper under construction from 2012 to 2017 in the Financial District of Downtown Los Angeles. There is a secondary construction building south of the Mile High Club tower, most likely based on the Regal Cinemas in L.A. Live, completed in 2009.

- Parachute (top of the biggest crane)
- The term "Mile High Club" is a slang term applied collectively to individuals who have sex while on board an aircraft in flight.
- Some of the wooden support beams towards the top of the tower are not solid and can be passed through by the player.
- The Mile High Club can be seen in the Los Santos skyline in the Race and Chase arcade games, even though the games were made in the late 1980s and the tower is only first being built over 20 years later. This is likely either an oversight or possibly a reference to the running joke between GTA players that the Mile High Club will never get finished.
