Some TCG Offices Will Be Moved into the Taipei Twin Towers of Wanhua Station by the End of September, 2016, Highlighting the “Zhongzheng-Wanhua Renovation Project”

In order to promote the "Zhongzheng-Wanhua Renovation Project", the Department of Finance (DOF) of Taipei City Government (TCG) planned to station related departments and sectors of TCG in the Taipei Twin Towers of Wanhua Station by the end of September, 2016. In addition to the head office of Taipei City Hospital and the affiliated agencies of the Department of Labor (DOL), Mayor's Second Office will be placed on the 10th floor in response to the requirement claimed by city councilors. Moreover, the Activity Center and Women and Children Affairs Center of the Department of Social Welfare will be set on the 3rd floor to serve citizens.

 

The DOF indicated that the move-in of TCG offices played a significant role in promoting the renovation of Wanhua, and it represented TCG's attention to the area as well. Nearly a thousand officials will move in and work in the buildings, boosting area's business development.

 

According to the DOF, the Taipei Twin Towers of Wanhua Station located near Bangka Boulevard is the highlight of the "Zhongzheng-Wanhua Renovation Project", and the construction is nearing completion. The constructions of the Base 1 and Base 2 were built upon the existing Wanhua Station. The Base 1 combined the bus services of Wanhua West Station and hotels, and the 26-story building will offer nearly 750 housing units. A 16-story building in combination of offices and restaurants was built on the Base 2. The 3rd to 11th floors were reserved for TCG offices, and it was estimated that nearly a thousand officials of Taipei City Hospital and the DOL will work in by the end of September. The base 3 was reserved for the construction of an auto-silo park. The 48-meter-high auto-silo park with 3 stories underground will offer nearly 700 parking spaces, reducing Wanhua area's parking pressure.

 

The three buildings on the Base 1, 2 and 3 will be connected by three-dimensional overpasses, and integrated as a complex space comprising offices, hotels, restaurants, parking and transportation services. The interior decoration and repairs of the move-in offices will be launched in July and be completed in two months. The office relocation affairs and personnel stationed will be arranged as long as the building occupancy permit is issued.

 

The DOF stated that TCG holds the renovation of Wanhua area in high regard. The "Zhongzheng-Wanhua Renovation Project" is propelled by the construction of MRT Wanda Line and implemented through government-led urban renewal plans. By promoting public infrastructures and market reconstruction, the traditional industry will be transformed and advanced with stronger competitiveness. The local waterfront landscape will be rebuilt, and service points will be established to strengthen citizen participation. In addition, the DOF reported that the Taipei Twin Towers was planned under the "Zhongzheng-Wanhua Renovation Project". After the completion of the buildings and underground parking, the shortage of parking spaces of the surrounding areas will be alleviated, making Wanhua prosperous and flourishing again.
