Had to google Torre de Cristal, it actually looks more like Bank of America to me

At first, I mistaken Torre de Cristal for this tower:
North East Asia Trade Tower, Incheon, South Korea

Who did it first?
hmmm, let's look at some data from Emporis about construction starting year:

1988 Le 1250 Boulevard René-Lévesque, Montréal
1989 Capella Tower, Minneapolis
1990 Westendstraße 1, Frankfurt, a.M.
1995 Menara Global, Jakarta (construction finishes)
1998 City Gate / Moshe Aviv, Ramat Gan

Interestingly, both the ones in Montréal and Frankfurt are designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.
