TAIPEI -- A peculiar-looking building is soaring into the sky in Taiwan's Xinyi district, where land prices are the highest on the island. It will be the most expensive condo in the city, which is already home to many luxury condos that are even costlier than those in Tokyo.
The building, called Tao Zhu Yin Yuan, has a unique twisted shape that looks like a double helix. "It'd be interesting to live there but it's too expensive," a 55-year-old man walking nearby said with a sigh. The 21-story residence, which is slightly taller than 90 meters, stands off the main street lined with a luxury hotel and department store. According to local media, the building will be complete sometime January to March next year.
