The investment in the twin skyscrapers is part of an emerging trend of developers looking west in the capital city. Long considered an aging part of Taipei, capital inflows are giving new life to the area. 

Construction of the twin skyscrapers near Taipei Main Station is expected to create significant business opportunities. Past investments include K Mall, which is on Zhongxiao West Road next to Shin Kong Mitsukoshi and across from the Main Station. Shin Kong Life invested almost NT$4 billion in the first floor shopping area. Its rate of return has been 2.6 percent.

This is an excellent opportunity for an insurance company. Even if you have money, it doesn’t mean you can buy something with such a good rate of return.

If Taipei Main Station is at the center, to one side is East Taipei and Xinyi District, and to the other side is Ximending. Many businesspeople say the potential for growth in the western part of the city is limitless. Old hotels are being renovated and turned into mid-priced accommodation. They attract visitors from Hong Kong and Japan.

Two years ago Taiwan Life bid NT$2.56 billion on the Chinfon Building on Nanyang Street. In August of this year, Fubon Life spent NT$6.7 billion on the Galaxy Building. The NT$17.33 million price per ping set a new record for Taiwan.

When storefronts in the western business district become available, they turn over one to two days faster than storefronts in the east. The main reason is the high price of prime areas in the east. In the future we may be able to see business turning away from the east and returning west.

Record investments in the Ximending area contrast the saturation seen in eastern Taipei commercial buildings. Western Taipei is making a case for once again becoming the center of development in the city.


台北車站兩棟雙子星大樓,順利脫標後,市場人士分析,將有效翻轉北市東西區軸線,而大亞百貨一樓由新光人壽,以39億多,相當每坪454萬得標後,由於最近西門町商圈多起標案價格屢創新高,讓喊了多年的東西軸線翻轉,燃起希望。

台北車站的雙子星大樓得標之後,估計能為台灣西區帶來商機。忠孝西路上,鄰近新光三越的大亞百貨,新光人壽以39億868萬元得標百貨的一樓,得標後預估投報率2.6%。

[[商辦業者 顏炳立]]
“對壽險公司來講,這是一個非常好的,目前有錢也不見得買到一個像這麼優質的投報率”

以台北車站為分界,東邊有東區和信義區,西邊則是西門町商圈,商辦業者話說的很直白,未來西區潛力無限,除了不少老舊飯店,改裝成平價飯店,吸引香港、日本觀光客入住。

而且2010年南陽街上的慶豐大樓,台壽保以25.6億元得標。今年八月,富邦人壽看好漢口街萬國大樓,以67億的價格買下,一坪相當1733萬元,再創高價成為全台新地王。

[[房仲業者 劉怡蓉]]
“西區的商圈商面釋出,成交天數會比東區快個有一兩天的差距,主要是東區一級戰區,總價還是屬於高檔, 東軸西返的現象,未來有可望會被實現”

西門町標案頻頻創新高,反觀東區土地、店面飽和,讓講了好久的,東西區軸線翻轉,重新燃起希望。
