Columbard Apartments in Auckland is 60 metres high & 6 or 7 metres wide, depending on the source - ratio of 10.0 or 8.6 which isn't that impressive but it looks bloody ridiculous.



There's a thread about Australia's thinnest skyscrapers located here.

This one from Valencia, Spain, is not tall, but it's pretty thin, it's under reconstruction because it's going to be "eaten" by its neighbour building, that's why it is in the news (http://servicios.lasprovincias.es/va...L-VAL-015.html)


be sure you are looking to this one:

A habitable building is surely not the thinnest free-standing construction in the world!

My favorites for this award are

Iglica, Wroclaw, Poland

Spire of Dublin, Dublin, Ireland

That mast in Konstantynow used to be the highest structure ever built on earth.. Too bad it collapsed, all because of bad renovation. Must have been a nice view from the top

If the former mast of Stubline medium wave transmitter in Serbia, which was destroyed at a NATO air raid on May 30th, 1999, in Serbia had a height of 220 metres (this would be the optimal value for a mast radiator for 684 kHz, unfortunaley I do not know, how tall it was), then this construction had a thickness-height-ratio of approximately 1 : 440, making it to one of the thinnest tower constructions ever built!
