The 6th tallest building in the world will go blue on April 2
Construction on the tower started in 1999 and finished in 2004. The Taipei 101 was the tallest building in the world until 2009 and today is the 6th tallest. The tower today stands at 101 stories tall and serves as the icon of modern Taiwan ever since it’s opening.
Known for its innovative technology, in 2016 Taipei 101 received the world's most authoritative green building certification LEED v4 (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, Version 4) – representing Taipei 101's commitment to sustainable development in Taiwan.
In addition, the tower is lit up with fireworks for an exceptional New Year’s Eve firework display every year for the local community to enjoy.
