There's plenty of this buildings with the same design all over the U.S. I recall one in San Diego and one in Los Angeles, should find them and post them but given its popularity back when they were built I guess there's no need since we'll have one whole page full of them.

yep, but the one in Seattle has an impressive base. That really sets it apart for me.

That Chinese tower is just a bad copy. Chrysler is just so much better design despite of its age.

Something a bit alternative here. Kungstornen highrises which were built in 1924-1925 in Stockholm, Sweden, and are considered the first modern skyscrapers in Europe. Both towers are like a copy of each other, however their height and decorations are lsightly different:
