The Carnegie Hall Tower in NYC is also from him...and it's boxy . But most of his buildings are not indeed.

I consider that one postmodernist too, because it doesn't have the flat, clean glass like this one does, and it has an overhang at the roof.

Yes, he has some works that one would barely guess that they are of his own, also he says he has never been postmodernist or anything but well, you are right and i agree the Carnegie tower has not the same style of this tower, maybe the Bloomberg Tower is more like Abeno Harukas in some way, but this is massive more like the Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower.

I think the design on this is remarkably similar to the new Jing'an building in Shanghai.

Even though the tower topped out back in August they only had an topping out event on Tuesday (23 Oct.).

高さ日本一のビル「あべのハルカス」上棟式

近畿日本鉄道が手がける超高層複合ビル「あべのハルカス」(大阪市阿倍野区)の上棟式が23日、開かれた。ハルカスは地上60階建てで、高さは300メートルと日本で最も高いビル。近鉄の小林哲也社長は「地域と連携し、大阪の新しい拠点にしていきたい」と語り、新たなランドマークとして広域からの集客効果に期待を示した。

 式典終了後、55階部分(高さ258メートル)の建設現場を公開した。眼下の通天閣をはじめ、大阪・梅田の高層ビル街など大阪市内を一望できる。最上部の58~60階には展望台を備え、開業後は一般の人も300メートルの眺望を楽しむことが可能だ。

 ハルカスは2014年春に全面開業の予定。小林社長は低層階に入る近鉄百貨店について、来年6月をメドに先行開業する方針を明らかにした。

This thing is a modern beast and I love it. The glazing/mullions and shifted angles give it just enough finese to make it eye catching but don't hide the brutal, hi-tech monster that this thing is.

It's really the epitome of a Japanese supertall imo.

The building in Shanghai is similar but not at the same level in my opinion. It's like the VE'd or budget version of Abeno Harukas.

I prefer the one in Shanghai. The shifted angles, as you say, are a drawback on the design on this one in my view. They seems arbitrary and I'd prefer if the building had symmetry.
