United Overseas Bank Plaza is a complex with twin tower late-modernist skyscrapers in the city of Singapore. It was one of the three tallest in the city, sharing the title with the OUB Centre and Republic Plaza, but now the second tallest since the construction of Tanjong Pagar Centre in 2016.

This building is the shorter and older building of the pair with construction completed in 1973 and later renovated in 1995 with a similar facade as the other tower. Both buildings are connected by a 45 m (148 ft) podium supported by four columns.

UOB Plaza One is a 280 m (920 ft) building with 67 floors, and was completed in 1992. It is the headquarters of the United Overseas Bank and major financial corporations such as UBS. On the 60th floor, there is a restaurant, Si Chuan Dou Hua. Its architecture is inspired by the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles.
