Taipei seeking NT$67 billion for revitalization



Wednesday, August 22, 2007
The China Post staff


Taipei City is seeking NT$67.4 billion in private investment to revitalize key areas of the city, officials announced yesterday at an investment seminar.

The money will be used for three revitalization projects: "Taipei Railway Station Twin Towers," "Kuangtzu Poai Re-Development," and "Hsinkuo Park Revitalization."

The "Twin Towers" project involves the construction of a pair of high-rise buildings near the Taipei Railway Station. The twin towers, which cost NT$44 billion to build, will measure 243 meters, or 56 floors, and 322 meters, or 76 floors, in height, and will be designed with a "Tai Chi" theme based on the works of famous sculptor Chu Ming, said Lin Hsun-chieh of the city's Department of Rapid Transit Systems.

"The twin towers will be the first thing visitors will see after they come out of the airport light rail, to be completed in 2012," Lin said, referring to a transportation project linking Taipei Railway Station with the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

One of the towers will become operational in 2012 when the light rail is completed, Lin said, adding the twin towers will be home to a hotel, offices and several trendy stores.

The "Kuangtzu Poai" project involves the re-development of a 6.5-hectare block of land formerly occupied by the Kuangtzu Poai Senior Care Center in the Hsinyi District, bordering Tatao and Feteh Roads. The project will be based on a build-operate-transfer contract with an estimated cost of NT$8.4 billion.

When completed, the block of land will be home to a new care center for the elderly, as well as low-priced houses, apartments for the elderly and businesspeople, parks, supermarkets, and underground parking, all made more accessible with the future opening of the MRT Hsinyi Line, said officials with the city's Business Development Commission.

The "Hsinkuo Park" project involves development of two parking lots behind the China Airlines building on Nanjing East Road. Once completed, the place will become home to offices, business hotels, commercial centers and gyms.

Among those in attendance at yesterday's seminar were representatives from AIG, Angelo Gordon Asia Ltd., and CLSA.

Quite a ways away as Taipei 101 is in the distant background.

Taipei 101 is going to stick out like a sore thumb until they contruct a cluster of towers around it.


These buildings look good though. Boxy, but not boring boxy.

I hope it's not too close to Taipei 101 Financial Centre. I would hate to see anything taller than 150-200 metres built within the vicinity of that tower.

It looks just ok, not groundbreaking or anything... hope it looks better when it's done.

From Taiwan news headlines, they have trouble to get company come to construct the project.

雙子星大樓流標 恐影響機場捷運線


http://tw.news.yahoo.com/article/url.../78/17nqp.html

雙子星大樓流標 恐影響機場捷運線 更新日期:2008/10/15 04:09 捷運局放寬投標限制 〔記者洪敏隆/台北報導〕標榜將成為國家門戶的台北車站雙子星大樓C1及D1土地開發案,雖然國內外許多知名財團都曾向台北市捷運局探詢表達興趣,但去年底辦理招標時,可能因為投資金額高達457億元令財團卻步,竟無人投標變成流標,捷運局為此將放寬投標限制,開放壽險、銀行業也能投資,若流標不排除市府自建,務必配合機場捷運線完工。 捷運局長常岐德說,該局經金管會同意,修改徵求作業原則,投資人除營建業外,壽險業及銀行業也可以參與投標,希望年底前可以重新招標,若還是流標,不排除由市府利用聯開基金等自行出資興建。 將延後一年完工 原定民國103年完工的雙子星大樓,因為流標已確定至少要延後一年完工,由於該大樓是桃園機場捷運線的終點站,令人擔心會影響機場捷運線完工時程,但捷運局保證,高鐵局委辦的機場捷運線桃園至三重段的工程,也有多個標案至今尚未招標,因此即使雙子星大樓延宕一些時程,仍能夠配合機場線完工。

Wow. A Taiwanese developer is constructing a monster 460m project in the Mainland but they don't want to build big stuff at home? What's the reason, little profit?

It all about the strict policy for skyscraper,such as limited and low rate of capacity, environmental impact checking, limited high for airplane lane....etc.

For example,limited high is the most effective one for Taipei development. (Shong Shang airport)

Red dot is location of Taipei 101 and red region is 60m limited high.(now change to 90m)

鋼價跌5成 公共工程發包利多





更新日期:2008/10/27 07:30 記者游文寶、潘欣中、黃寅、楊濡嘉/連線報





「這對持續低迷的景氣是好現象」,桃園縣土木公會理事長呂淵泉昨天說,雖然水泥和石料降幅不多,但鋼筋價格降幅過半,還是激勵了營造廠商投標政府公共工程的意願;至少廠商得標後,不用成天擔心鋼價漲不停。



專門承包公共工程的友人營造工程公司董事長黃滄隆也說,這對廠商的風險評估有利多了,「但就國際金融情形和經濟大環境而言,要靠公共工程把景氣帶上來,還沒那麼快,也還有一段路要走」。 黃滄隆說,六月十七日是今年鋼價頂點,每噸要三萬八千元,現在只要一萬八千元,差距實在大;若鋼價趨勢往上,廠商要抓成本就很危險,趨勢若是往下,鋼價便宜又可能再跌,相形對廠商較有利。



他說,已能感覺擴大內需的公共工程逐漸釋放,對從事公共工程營造商較有利,但對民間建築推案的營造商,因房地產市產急凍,從事建築案的營造商仍較辛苦。 桃園縣利晉營造工程表示,雖然鋼價成本減少,但景氣還在波動,仍採取保守態度因應,「暫時不考慮投標公共工程」。



高雄市隆大營造廠董事長陳武聰說,雖然鋼價降,可是前一波大漲時,已有許多中、小型營造廠受影響,經營困難。 他指出,現在政府規定得標公共工程後,如果鋼筋價格降下來,廠商要把降的價錢還給政府,例如得標時如果一噸一萬六千元,後降到一萬四千元,差價要還給政府,所以好不容易撐過原物料價格高的廠商,可能因此對公共工程興趣缺缺。
==========================================================
Basically, from this new we can know

The steel price in Taiwan is down to half price of highest point in this year which 38,000 NT per tonne drop to 18,000 per tonne. It is advantage for public development companies. But, the companies may not interest because they need to pay back the price difference to government.

Fumihiko Maki's firm was also picked to design WTC Tower 4 which is just starting to make progress; they must really be among the best or else they wouldn't have even been considered for the project. I also notice the two projects have a lot in common aside from having boring models and renderings, but the final result is what matters and I know that both projects will be stunning when completed.

I think that is normal Japanese style, which is a huge box with some creation in detail. In fact,they make this kind of style because Japanese Architects need to cosider government building legislation and regulation which create under environmental impact, like earthquake.
Fumihiko Maki has some other projects in Taiwan, such as Taichung Opera House.

Two current issues happen to construction site:

1: The underground construction that contacts Taipei main station and A1 station is going to start. A1 station is under the Gate of Taipei and is built by government. This means the whole building can not start before this work is done. (The building part is BOT.)

2: The new bus interchange inside ITaipei will be operating in March next year, which will replace the original one on C1 site.



This show where is A1 station


C1 and D1


These two issues explain why we haven't seen the building
