Reconstruction of Plasco Memories

Jul 28, 2020
The Plasco building was located on the northeast side of the Istanbul-Tehran crossroads; it was considered as the first high-rise and modern building in the Middle East. This 17-storey building with a metal frame, opened in 1962, was the tallest building in Tehran at that time. This tower was the first steel-framed building in Tehran and the second tallest building with an elevator. At present, the north side of the complex is being repaired and prepared for reopening after four years that the building was fired.
