Just because both buildings look narrow doesn't mean one is inspired by the other. If you ask me, this building is not even similar to the one in hk.

No I disagree. They are not just both narrow. They are also on a similar site and have a similar (and unusual) angular design. As soon as I saw that new Hong Kong building I immediately thought of the LVMH building in New York. The inspiration is obvious.

It's far from a copy paste and I like it, but I think it is inspired by it, nothing wrong with that is it?
