Taipei’s most anticipated development, Taipei Sky Tower, in Taipei’s prime Xinyi District, housing two hotels and an experiential retail podium, is scheduled for a 2020 opening.

Symbolising a bamboo shoot and a Roman column, this 54-level building will juxtapose Eastern and Western elements with a pleated façade accentuated in green. The development will join hands with Hyatt International luxury brands: Park Hyatt and Andaz.

It will be designed by Italy’s Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners (ACPV). ACPV will also lead interior design for the Park Hyatt, while Neri & Hu will lead interior design for Andaz Taipei. Riant Capital Limited plans to shape the podium and streetscape of Taipei Sky Tower into a flagship shopping boulevard.
