BackArrowGreen.png Back to List of buildings in Civ5

In Civilization V and its expansions, a unique building (UB) is a special building that can be built by only one of the civilizations in the game. A unique building always replaces a standard building, and civilizations that don't have one will have a unique improvement or a second unique unit instead.
