Actually, it's the angle of photo (the fact that Rahimtulla is on the foreground) that makes it look like Rahimtulla is taller, move a few kilometers away and you'll notice that KCB is actually taller

In the photo rahimtulla is so much closer than kcb but kcb as a building is taller than rahimtulla plus its located at a higher point. The photo for abc tower shows this clearly

No "dude", there is no tint in that picture. Look at the other objects such as the buildings and clouds, they don't look green to me.

Their English is poor... they meant "Topping-Out Ceremony"

It's when the building has reached its full structural height
