One Raffles Place, formerly Overseas Union Bank Centre is one of the tallest skyscrapers in the city of Singapore. It was the tallest together with the UOB Plaza and Republic Plaza until the construction of Tanjong Pagar Centre in 2016.

At 280 m (920 ft), it was also the tallest building in the world outside North America at the time of its completion in 1986, surpassing South Korea’s 63 Building completed one year earlier, until it was succeeded by the Bank of China Tower. The building sits at the city centre of Raffles Place.
