The UIC Building (United Industrial Corporation Limited Building) was a 40-storey, 152 m (499 ft) skyscraper in the city-state of Singapore. The tower was completed in 1973, and it is the 39th-tallest building in Singapore, tied in rank with Chevron House, Meritus Mandarin Singapore Tower Two, and One Marina Boulevard. At the time of its 1973 completion, the UIC Building was the tallest structure in the city-state and one of the tallest buildings in Southeast Asia. It retained the former title for only one year, as the 162 m (531 ft) United Overseas Bank Plaza Two was completed in 1974. The building was renovated in 1986 and was given a new concrete facade in the Brutalist style of architecture.
The UIC Building is to become V on Shenton (Five on Shenton) development which will include mix of residential and commercial units. Demolition work has started in the beginning of 2012.
