Ground-breaking Ceremony for New Home Housing Wanhua Police Station, Longshan Fire Station

Mayor Ko Wen-je presided over the ground-breaking ceremony for the new building housing the Wanhua Police Station and the Fire Department’s Longshan Fire Station on July 16.

During his address, the mayor noted that the city should take this construction opportunity to build the best facility possible. In the future, he hopes to include goals such as modernization and maximize convenience for the public.

He believes that in addition to incorporating devices such as solar panels, there can be more carbon-emission reducing and energy conservation design integrated into the blueprint, helping the project acquire the Green Building Label.

Ko pointed out that the location is close to tourist attractions such as Bangka Park, Longshan Temple, and Huaxi Street Night Market – places which attract both domestic and foreign tourists. He explained that this is the reason why he emphasizes the modernization and convenience considerations of the building’s design.

At the end of his speech, the mayor expressed his gratitude to the city councilors attending the event. He also hopes that the architect firm and company in charge of the construction project can create a landmark public facility for Wanhua District.
