Technically, the fattest buildings would be train stations and airport terminals moreso than skyscrapers.

Marina Bay Sands Resort, now under construction in Singapore.

Not exactly fat, but the skypark rooftop makes the whole ensemble quite wide.

Merchandise Mart, Chicago. I believe still holds the title as largest commercial building in the world, at over 4 million square feet.
