They got their differences but I have to admit they do look 80% similar. Except this tower have a modern glassy crown finish with wider frames. Key Tower have none of those and have much more sharper crown.

i.e,

This is a ridiculous claim. Out of almost 475 skyscrapers on my watch list are Chinese projects, probably only one or two resembles an american skyscraper (yet even that, it's 100% identical).

Looks rather American to me also but its hard to not run into that trap. The us And Canada have built quite a few themselves. and China is building very very many.

But anyway the Crown will looks very nice i think if they use good Cladding and put in lights. and the proportions of the crown are very good towards the width and height of the building

there is a reason a lot of buildings look similar. the box form is the most efficient for buildings like this and with so many hundred towers rising in china it is obvious towers will look similar to other buildings, which is a good thing, because if one design pays off why not building something inspired by it. :cheers:
