One Raffles Place, formerly Overseas Union Bank Centre or OUB Centre is one of the three tallest skyscrapers in the city of Singapore, sharing the title with the UOB Plaza and Republic Plaza. At 280 m (920 ft), it was the tallest building in the world outside North America at the time of its completion in 1986, surpassing South Korea's 63 Building completed one year earlier, until it was succeeded by the Bank of China Tower. The building sits at the city centre of Raffles Place.

Frenchman Alain Robert, well known for climbing skyscrapers, aborted an attempted climb on this building on 3 November 2000. After reaching the 21st floor, the police dissuaded Robert's ascent, and he re-entered the building through a window on the 23rd floor. He was detained by the Singapore police who treated his stunt as criminal trespass.
A new commercial tower was constructed next to the existing tower. Ground bearing ceremony was on 26 September 2008. The new tower was open in 2011 with 38 floors. Upon completion of the new tower the complex was officially renamed One Raffles Place.
