This is an impressive tower that I found on the internet.
Tallest building in Taiwan from 1997 to today.
- This building is owned by the Tuntex Group (Chien-Tai is a company under the Tuntex Group).
- The building serves 5 major uses: the Chien-Tai Department Store; offices; private residential apartments; the Grand Formosa Hotel; and an observation deck.
- Currently the 3rd tallest building in Asia and the 6th tallest building in the world, not including the spire.
- Contains the highest hotels rooms in Taiwan ROC, and the 2nd highest hotels rooms in the world, after Jin Mao Tower of Shanghai.
- Replaced Chang-Gu World Trade Center as the tallest building in Kaohsiung.
- Replaced Shin-Kong Life Tower as the tallest building in Taiwan.
- The building's shape is based on the Chinese character of 高 (Kao), which is the first word in the city's name.
