I don't suppose the winter construction halt applies to Zun tower?

This is how the buildings look from space, but so far I could not find the name of this building.

Yet this building is very similar to the Hearst Tower in New York. This is architectural plagiarism in China.

Was it an architectural or an engineering choice (diagrid) for a set of constraints ?

The Zhong Hong Tower has a concrete core and appears more upscale ( see http://www.som.com/projects/zhong_hong_tower ).

SOM is a prestigious US firm, they designed the Willis Tower and Burj Khalifa (though it doesn't seem to stop them from copying Norm Foster).
