I don't know if you folks consider these "skyscrapers," but I was struck by these two similarities a few years ago:

Buffalo Central Terminal
Buffalo, NY, USA
Built: 1929
Height: 83 m
Purpose: Former Train Station

Lindner Hotel & Residence Main Plaza
Frankfurt, Germany
Built: 2001
Height: 88 m
Purpose: Hotel/Apartments

I love how they also kept the ineffective window divisions - there is even no technical reason to do that anymore

I'd love to see a pic of the whole building, not just the base.

Skyscraper is an incredibly tall building for commercial use which is located in New York city in United States. It's a high rise building at New York with steel framework, curtain walls and load bearing walls. If you ever go for New York you must visit this building.
