The Plasco Building was a 17-story high-rise in Tehran. It was built in 1962 by the prominent Iranian Jewish businessman Habib Elghanian, and it was named after his plastics company. The Plasco was used mostly as a commercial building, with a major shopping center on its ground floor, and a restaurant on its upper floor.
The building was the tallest building in Iran when it was constructed, and it was considered an iconic landmark of the Tehran skyline. The Plasco building collapsed on January 19, 2017, during a fire.
