This is a list of tallest buildings in Pakistan, ranked by structural height.

The current tallest building in Pakistan is the Bahria Icon Tower in Karachi. Upon its completion, it changed the skyline of Karachi, at 62 floors, and a height to its spire tip of 300 m (980 ft). It also became the first Supertall skyscraper to be topped out in South Asia.[1][2][2]

Most of Pakistan's tallest buildings can be found in its most populous city of Karachi. Habib Bank Plaza, built in 1963 in Karachi, was the first high-rise and the tallest building in Pakistan. It stands 102 m (335 ft) tall with 25 floors. It was also the tallest building in Asia from 1963 to 1968, and the tallest building in South Asia from 1963 to 1970. In 2005, MCB Tower, also in Karachi, surpassed Habib Bank Plaza at 116 m (381 ft)[3] and 29 floors. In 2012, Ocean Towers eclipsed these at 120 m (394 ft) and 30 floors. Bahria Icon Tower surpassed them all in 2014.

Completed buildings

This list ranks completed and topped out buildings that stand at least 100 m (328 ft) or 20 floors, based on standard height measurement. This height includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. Existing partially habitable structures are included for ranking purposes based on present height. Karachi has the most number of completed high rise buildings in Pakistan followed by Islamabad.
