Most populated residential building

I remember some years ago there was talking about one proposed building in Japan, not "one special high one" but it would be an residential with 30,000 people living in it.

So my question is an quite interesting one :-)

Can someone list a top five list in most populated residential building (any form of building) :-)

I guess those wide and tall residential buildings in Hong Honk are good contenders.
For example: "the Harbourside"

Triumph Paace 264m, Moscow --------- DIAGRAM : http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?searchID=57781540

Triumph-Palace (Russian: Триу́мф-Пала́с, transliterated as Triumf Palas) is the tallest apartment building in Moscow and the entire Europe. It is sometimes called the Eighth Sister because it is similar in appearance to the Seven Sisters skyscrapers built in Moscow by Joseph Stalin through the 1950s. Construction began in 2001. The 57-storey building, containing about 1,000 luxury apartments, was topped out on 20 December 2003, making it Europe's tallest skyscraper at 264.1 metres (866 ft) until the inauguration in 2007 of Moscow's 268 metre Naberezhnaya Tower block C.

The Sillon de Bretagne, located in the suburbs of Nantes was the largest social housing block in Europe when it was completed in 1971 with 31 floors and some 900 flats. There were about 3,000 inhabitants in the building at that time.
Today some flats have been converted into offices and one part of the building (in the lowest branch) have been demolished. So I think there remains only 600 flats.

Pics are from 2007 (the building is right now undergoing a renovation) :







The Sillon in the 1970's :

I find Chungking Mansions in Hong kong one of the most populated, crowded and interesting buildings i've been to.
