Horizontal skyscraper is like the Empire State Building on its side

The Horizontal Skyscraper is an absolutely massive structure, clocking in at 1,296,459 square feet. It's like the Empire State Building, only horizontal. And with branching arms.

Housing a hotel, commercial/office space and a residential area, it seems like the kind of place you can be at for weeks without having to leave, for better or worse.

The huge building offers views of the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other, with pools surrounding it reflecting it back at itself. It's an impressive piece of architecture, to be sure, especially for something that only rises 114 feet off the ground.
