Do you mean office tower, or just any building. I would guess it would be one of our automobile manufacturing plants or West Edmonton Mall.

I think it is Prora. A hotel Hitler build for the Germans on Rugen. It was planned to be THE holiday destination for the Germans. But because of the Great War they never finished the building. Today it is abandoned

Each of the eight buildings is .5km long, making the entire complex 4km long! The eight buildings were supposed to be conencted, but those portions were not built.

The Great Wall of China is the widest of all.
Approximately 6,700 kilometers (4,163 miles) wide.
