TAIPEI - Taipei Dome (40,000)

From the Taipei Times:

Design of dome gets green light
By Mo Yan-chih
Fri, Dec 10, 2010

The long-stalled construction project for the Taipei Dome yesterday passed Taipei City’s urban design review amid protests over the project’s possible impact on local traffic and overall environment. The proposed site of the complex, which includes a 40,000-seat indoor stadium with surrounding shopping and residential districts, is located at the corner of Zhongxiao E and Guangfu S roads. Construction is scheduled to start in July if it passes the environmental impact assessment early next year. The Urban Design Review Committee’s decision to approve the project was met with strong protests from a group of environmentalists and local residents who rushed into the closed-door meeting and clashed with police. “Several hundred old trees at the historic Songshan Tobacco Factory were removed because of the project and local residents have lost a place to exercise and relax,” said Yu Yi (游藝), a member of a civic group that calls for the preservation of the factory site. “The city government is profiting enterprises by approving the project.” Calls by protesters on the city government to reject the project and annul the build-operate-transfer contract with the Farglory Group failed to prevent the review committee from approving the project, which was originally scheduled for completion this year. Farglory chairman Chao Teng-hsiung (趙藤雄), who attended the committee meeting, rejected the protesters’ claim that the building would have a negative impact on the environment, adding that the complex would not pose a serious threat to the environment as it has gone through “the strictest reviews.” Ting Yu-chun (丁育群), commissioner of the city’s Urban -Development Department and review committee chairman, said that even if the project were approved, the Farglory Group would still be required to submit a report on traffic control measures. The group signed the contract with the city government in 2006 and plans to invest more than NT$23 billion (US$700 million) in the complex. Since then, ongoing protests from environmentalists and local residents have stalled the review process and the group subsequently agreed to reduce the size of the complex from 590,000m2 to 555,000m2. Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) said yesterday the project had followed all necessary administrative processes over the years and that the city’s review committee had approved it through a fair and transparent mechanism.

From the Taipei Times:

Taipei Dome gets a green light
By Mo Yan-chih
Fri, May 27, 2011

A review committee yesterday gave conditional approval to the Taipei Dome construction project, paving the way for the construction of the long-stalled building amid ongoing protests by environmental activists who oppose the 500,000m2 commercial complex in downtown Xinyi District (信義).
Taipei City’s Environmental Impact Assessment Review Committee, by a vote of eight to five, approved the project on the condition that the developer reduce the size of the commercial facilities at the complex and increase the number of parking spaces. The size of the commercial facilities, including a shopping mall, movie theater, hotel and office space, should be cut by 17.4 percent to 202,610m2, while parking space should be increased to 187,965m2, the committee said. The conditions also included adding another lane to Zhongxiao E Road, presenting a traffic plan that avoids traffic congestion in residential areas along the road and acquiring environmentally friendly building certification. Committee chair Wu Sheng-chong (吳聖忠), commissioner of the city’s Department of Environmental Protection, said after the three-hour meeting that the developer should meet all the requirements before construction can begin. The decision put an end to the long-delayed environmental impact assessment for the project. Committee members expressed concern about the profit-driven design of the complex and said the developer should devote more space to sports, while presenting comprehensive solutions to traffic congestion, among other environmental impacts. Farglory Group, the developer, signed a contract with the city government in 2005 and planned to invest more than NT$23 billion (US$700 million) in the complex at the abandoned Songshan Tobacco Factory on Zhongxiao E Road, which would include a 40,000-seat indoor stadium. Tsai Chung-i (蔡宗易), vice president of the group’s public relations department, said the company would estimate the impact of reducing the size of the commercial facilities on future profits, declining to confirm whether the company would continue with the project. “[The conditional approval] of the Taipei Dome project is good news for the public because Taiwan needs a professional sports venue to host international events,” Tsai said after the meeting at Taipei City Hall. “However, as the contractor, we need to make sure for our shareholders that the operation of the complex is profitable.” Environmental groups were not satisfied with the outcome. Taiwan Green Party spokesman Pan Han-shen (潘翰聲) said city officials accounted for seven of the 13 committee members and Pan accused the city government of hijacking the review process. “The review process and the voting were against procedural justice,” he said. Farglory should send a revised project plan to the city’s urban development committee for approval, before applying for a construction license if it decides to cooperate with the requirements, the committee said.

Some information about this project, courtesy of Populous:

Quote:
The Dome includes a 40,000 seat covered baseball arena, and more than 100 thousand square metres of integrated themed retail, hotels, offices and apartments on an historic site, the old Song Shan Tobacco Factory site, in the centre of the Taiwan capital. The design includes direct views to the historic Song Shan Factory, an integral part of the development. This significant win for Populous has come after almost five years of initial feasibility work and negotiations with both the Taipei Government and the successful development contractor, the Far Glory consortium, one of the biggest developers in Taiwan. The Taipei Dome will create a major sport and cultural designation point within Taiwan and is the first project in the country that integrates a new development within an historic precinct.

From the Taipei Times:

Approval finally given for Taipei Dome construction
By Mo Yan-chih
Fri, Jun 17, 2011

The long-stalled Taipei Dome project passed the final review process yesterday, obtaining approval from Taipei City’s Urban Design Review Committee, with construction scheduled to start in October. The approval was the final step for the project after the city’s Environmental Impact Assessment Review Committee granted conditional approval on May 26. The urban design committee said the contractor should make adjustments to the plans in accordance with the requirements of the environmental impact committee before beginning construction. The environmental impact committee required the developer of the project — Farglory Group — to reduce the size of the complex’s commercial facilities, including a shopping mall, movie theater, hotel and office space by 17 percent to 202,610m2, and increase parking space to 187,965m2. The conditions also included adding another lane to Zhong-xiao E Road, presenting a traffic plan that avoids congestion in nearby residential areas and acquiring environmentally friendly building certification. Ting Yu-chun (丁育群), urban design committee chair and commissioner of Taipei City’s Urban Development Department, said the developer must revise its plans to meet the conditions before applying for a construction license. Janus Lee (李柏熹), manager of Farglory’s operation administration department, said the company would make the adjustments immediately and apply for a construction license by July 2, with preliminary plans for construction to begin in October. The urban design committee’s decision was met with protests from environmentalists and local residents, who said the project would have a negative impact on traffic flow and the environment. Taiwan Green Party spokesman Pan Han-shen (潘翰聲) said various committee members had expressed concerns about the project in previous review meetings, but the city government insisted on approving the project. Pan urged Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) to hold a public debate with environmentalists on whether the city needs another commercial complex in downtown Xinyi District (信義).
