Seems that almost all of Pelli's designs look really similar these days. Tower with a tapering top.

The Westin Towers here in Seattle always remind me of Marina City in Chicago. Not exact but similar.

Theres a lot of old skyscrapers from the 30s in NY that look similar, they all follow the same style, and are built like mini ESB's some without the spire :P

I've always thought that from some angles the Genworth Tower in North Sydney bears a resemblance to the Ryugyong Hotel:
