The first highrise and the tallest building in Pakistan was the Habib Bank Plaza, located in Pakistan's largest city, Karachi, and built in 1963, it stands 101 meters tall and has 22 floors; however in 2005 MCB Tower which is also in Karachi overtook the Habib Bank Plaza to become the tallest building in Pakistan. It stands 116 meters tall[1] and has 29 floors.[1]

Another tall building is The Grand Hyatt in Islamabad which upon completion will be a 5-star hotel and 217 meters tall. Another notable building is The Centaurus, currently under construction in Islamabad and slated for completion sometime next year, it will become Pakistan's first 7-Star hotel and the world's third 7-Star hotel, behind Burj Al Arab in Dubai, United Arab Emirates which was the first followed by Town House Galleria in Milan, Italy. Port Tower, currently approved for construction in Karachi will be a supertall skyscraper at 593 meters(1,947 ft), 117 floors and when completed will represent Pakistan's year of independence (1947).
