Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, in collaboration with Taipei-based developer Yuan Lih Construction Co. Ltd., has unveiled plans for a new luxury hotel in Taipei.
Located in the city’s Xinyi District and housed in a 31-story tower, the 591-foot-tall Four Seasons Hotel Taipei will feature 260 rooms with city and mountain views. The hotel will include a Chinese restaurant, a specialty restaurant, an all-day restaurant, a destination bar and a lobby lounge. The higher floors will offer panoramic views of Taipei and the mountain ranges on the horizon.
In addition, the hotel will have an executive club lounge fitness center with an outdoor pool and spa, as well as a grand ballroom and a junior ballroom. Garden space on the ground floor will also be available for meetings and events.
Four Seasons Hotel Taipei will be located opposite Taipei 101, an iconic skyscraper and one of the tallest towers in the world.
“Taipei has long been a target destination for Four Seasons as we look to expand our presence in Asia’s most important cities. We are tremendously excited to announce our upcoming hotel in Taipei together with our partners at Yuan Lih Construction Co., Ltd.,” said Bart Carnahan, president, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “This project will be a destination of choice in Taipei for both locals and travelers, combining thoughtful design, world-class restaurants and bars, and personalized service by incredible Four Seasons people.”
With the building currently under construction, the hotel is expected to open within a few years.
International architecture company RSHP will design the hotel. The design of the building will make full use of sunlight by creating a space with high ceilings and expansive windows. The building targets Taiwan Green Building Rating Gold and at least LEED silver.
“Through three significant outward-facing spatial gestures across its elevation, the Hotel will embrace the immediate public realm at street level, the rapidly growing Xinyi District at mid-level and Taipei’s iconic mountain setting at its peak, together creating a landmark building that is very much of its place,” said Ivan Harbour, senior design partner, RSHP. “With a focus on guest experience and wellbeing, the team has carefully orchestrated the interactions between the hotel and its surroundings. Every journey and every space will have its own moment.”
