Milad Tower

Milad Tower is the tallest tower in Iran. Built in between the Shahrak-e Gharb and Gisha districts of Tehran, it stands 435 m high from base to tip of the antenna. It's named after engineer Heydari's son which he owns 25 percent of the building in 2005. The head consists of a large pod with 12 floors, the roof of which is at 315 m (1,033 ft).

Below this is a staircase and elevators to reach the area. Milad Tower is the fifth tallest tower in the world after the Guangzhou TV & Sightseeing Tower in Guangzhou, CN Tower in Toronto, Ostankino Tower in Moscow, and the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai. It is also currently (in early 2008) the 14th tallest freestanding structure in the world.

Milad Tower is part of The Tehran International Trade and Convention Center. The project includes the Milad telecommunication tower offering restaurants at the top with panoramic views of Tehran, a five-star hotel, a convention center, a world trade center, and an IT park.

The complex seeks to respond to the needs of business in the globalized world of the 21st century by offering facilities combining trade, information, communication, convention and accommodation all in one place.
