HBL Plaza was also tallest building in Pakistan for 4 decades but 116m MCB tower took the tittle of tallest tower in Pakistan in 2006. Currently by height, Ocean Tower of 30 floors and 120 meters is standing tallest in whole Pakistan. Both Local and Foreign Builders are building tall buildings in every edge of Karachi City.
