There's a building in Benidorm called Residencia Costa Blanca, 116 metres tall, it's around 15 metres wide in one side but no more than 5 metres wide in the other side!!!, it's amazing, I haven't got any pic

Yeah, you're right, but it's 176m, which is pretty tall for a slim building. And I just realized the thread's about thin European towers.

Among the thinnest highrise-buildings are also that, which mark the borderline between tower and highrise, I mean multi-store buildings, which are real highrise buildings, but more designed to house equipment than humans. Good examples are these highrise-like telecommunication towers in Poland


SLR Dobromierz, at Dobromierz ( 50°59'58.8"N 19°55'29.1"E )


SLR Niegowa, at Niegowa ( 50°38'29"N, 19°27'59.2"E )


SLR Bytków, at Bytków ( 50°17'44" N 19°00'18" E )

Müggelturm, an observation tower in Berlin, belongs also in this category

Somewhat like the Ellips Tower in Brussels, Belgium.

Looks small from one side:

But is much thicker at the other side:
