Architects have been tearing apart and hacking Modernism and now International styles with this offset box treatment for like a decade now.

If anything, it adds a bit of character to a rigid and authoritarian style that often becomes imposing like Boston City Hall or this monstrosity I walk by every so often.

I'm not sure if there's a style that would make the abject greed and atrocious scale of 432 Park appropriate. If anything, the facade softens it.
