TAIPEI | Gate of Taipei | 322m | 1057ft | 76 fl | 243m | 797ft | 56 fl | On Hold

Height: 322.2m / 243m
Floors: 76 / 56
Architect: Fumihiko Maki
Developer: CECI

Notes:
Advertising Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki has been chosen by a Taiwan consortium to design the Taipei Twin Tower, a new landmark for the capital city scheduled to be launched in 2011, a city official said.

Maki, 77, has been named by the China Engineering Consultants Inc (CECI) to design the Taipei Twin Tower, part of the urban renewal plan involving expanding the Taipei Railway Station and developing surrounding areas, Lee Shang-jui, from the Taipei city government's Department of Rapid Transit System (DORTS), told reporters.

"The Taipei Railway Station will be rebuilt so that it can link up with the high-speed railway and the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line linking the Taipei Railway Station and the Taiwan Tao-yuan International Airport," Lee said.

"In 2011, foreigners arriving at the Taiwan Tao-yuan International Airport will take the MRT line to the Taipei Railway Station, and see the Taipei Twin Tower when they come out of the Taipei Railway Station," he said.

The Taipei Twin Tower will be two matchbox-shaped commercial complexes -- one 322.2m tall with 76 stories, and the other 243m tall with 56 stories.

They will stand west of the new Taipei Railway Station which Maki will also design. Maki has called his design the "Gate of Taipei."

On completion, the Taipei Twin Tower will become Taiwan's 3nd tallest building after the 508m Taipei 101 and the 347.5m Tuntex Sky Tower in Kaohsiung.

All looks very nice. Still cant quite work out the shape of the tower but Im sure it'll come to me at sometime. Skyway looks impressive and very big. Be a great photo op when its built.

Yeah, Taipei needs more highrises to compliment Taipei101. And box shapes are good too to give it a real city skyline, unlike Dubai & Shanghai's fantasy skylines with too many odd shaped towers.

For those who are unfamiliar with Taipei's skyline, this will be in the downtown core, far away from Taipei 101 (off to the east in a new ground-up commercial district sort of like La Defense of Paris). The skyline around 101 will not be harmonized in any substantive way with this new building.

I personally find the building a bit simplistic in form, but Japanese architects are known to have good taste in detail, so let's hope for the best.

Hmmm, not very exciting IMO. Maybe the models don't do it justice..? The render looks a little better.

look like the cell phone tower in Shanghai.

Taipei's got horrible urban planning, they keep on building towers like they they'll never have a skyline. and the 101 will always remain a needel.
