History

Milad Tower Tehran Iran

The Milad Tower was first proposed as part of the “Shahestan Pahlavi” project, in Tehran’s Abbas Abad district. The project was designed by the American urban planner Jaquelin Robertson. The site was to encompass five million square meters of land, a third of which was to be open space. It would have accommodated 50,000 residents, as well as government ministries, commercial offices, and a number of cultural centers, including museums, facilities for the performing arts, and libraries, including the Pahlavi National Library. The project would have cost $5 billion ($21 billion adjusted for inflation). For a while the firm employed Lisa Halaby, the future Queen Noor of Jordan. With the advent of the Iranian revolution, the project was cancelled. The Milad Tower was the only part of Shahestan Pahlavi to be built.
