This reminds me of a building in Oklahoma City, originally called Citizens Tower. It's part of the complex of buildings of which the old Citzens bank building (the "Golden Dome" that local preservationists are trying to save from demolition, currently) is one building.

The Citizens Tower, built in 1959 and designed by a local architect, was a direct copy of Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower (Bartlesville, Oklahoma). You can see the Citizens Tower in the background in this photo of the Golden Dome:
