[Tehran] Milad Tower | 435 m | Complete

The Borj-e Milad is Iran's tallest tower. Built in Tehran, Iran, it stands 435 meters (1427 ft) high from base to tip of antenna. The head consists of a large pod with 12 floors, the roof which is at 315 m 1034 ft. Below this is a staircase and elevators to reach the area.

Milad tower is part of The Tehran International Trade and Convention Center. Scheduled for completion in late 2005, the project includes the Milad telecommunication tower offering restaurants at the top with spectacular 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.

The complex features a parking area of 27,000 square meters, a large computer and telecommunication unit, a cultural and scientific unit, a commercial transaction center, a temporary showroom for exhibiting products, a specialized library, an exhibition hall and an administrative unit. Milad Tower is also claimed to be the fourth tallest free standing structure in the world, and the only tower with an octogonal base, symbolizing traditional Persian architecture.

It seems like this thing has been under construction for so long that I'm starting to wonder if it will be finished in my lifetime.......

Mr. N - Well, they said completion date is end of 2005, so deadline isn't over yet.

Milad Tower to Become Tehran Symbol

www.shana.com, Daily, May. 15th, 2005



The newly built 435 meter Milad Tower is predicted to replace the long-time symbol of Tehran, the Azadi tower. Experts are also suggesting for the registration of the Tower as an Iranian national heritage. Experts believe that the new tower will one day replace the today symbol of the capital of Iran, the Azadi Tower. They say it will take some time for people to get accustomed to the structure, gradually accepting it as the new symbol of Tehran metropolitan.

The new concrete structure of Milad Tower which stands up 435 meter high on Gisha Hills of Tehran is reaching its final phase and will soon be completed.

The Tower is considered the forth highest communication-broadcasting tower of the world and the first considering the vast functional structure on its top.

Azadi Tower did not become the symbol of the capital by advertising or any special plans, explains a preservation expert, Eskandar Mokhtari, but rather by peoples’ affection for the tower. “They stood next to the tower and took pictures, and those who traveled to Tehran from other provinces talked of the special tower in their return home,” said Mokhtari.

Mokhtari believes that Milad Tower will undergo the same process, in time becoming the new symbol of Tehran. Milad Tower which can be seen from any place in Tehran is located in a 70-hectare land, 17 of which is possessed by the tower and the rest will be given to a future five-star international hotel, an international communication center, conference halls, an information technology and commercial center, plus a museum allocated to the legacy of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

According to executive manager of the Yademan Sazeh Company which is in charge of constructing the tower, Mohammadhasan Nazarpour, the project is not only going to include tourist facilities, but also is to replace the Azadi Tower as the symbol of the Iranian capital. It is moreover proof of the Iranian engineers and scientists’ expertise.

Azadi Tower has long been known as the symbol of the Iranian capital, but despite its being registered as a national heritage and having the special attention of the Iranian Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO), today it breathes heavily amidst the Azadi Square traffic jam, air pollution, and improper maintenance.

i remember looking at pics of this at least a year ago (maybe two years). since that time there has been slow progress. are they having difficulty with the observation pod and antenna? that section seems to be taking ages to construct. maybe there is financial problems?

HI, I'm making a list of the world's tallest structures. Does anyone knows the exact geographic location in degrees or decimals of the Borj-e Milad (Milad Tower)?

Thanks.
