And it isn't technically a building, it's a transmission tower. The windows that make it look like it has regular floors are just there to hide the huge, and otherwise very ugly, concrete shaft that's designed to withstand a nuclear explosion from a mile away.

1 of the 2 towers on top of Nagoya Stations is perfectly cylindrical expect for a square part that sticks out. The 2nd tower tower on the right in the picture is just a half circle.

The Phoenix building, in Hartford, CT, is the first two-sided building in the world, built in 1963. It is only 87 feet wide in the narrow direction.
