It’s been a long year of planning to establish PROJECTR® Taipei.
Getting the right site for our flagship center was paramount so the search for an optimal location for our newest PROJECTR has been extensive. We surveyed the new eastern commercial area of Taipei, searched the tech parks of Nangang and Linkou on the outskirts, rode the elevators of dozens of prospective office towers, and climbed the stairwells of character buildings across the older area of this sprawling city. We even ventured up the mighty bamboo-inspired Taipei 101 to view potential sites.
Referencing our purpose as a landing pad for those plying new global digital trade routes, it’s apt that we’ve selected a city location near the historic wharves of the famed Tamsui River – where products such as rice, sugar, coal, camphor, and tea leaves were once ferried downstream to Taipei and Chinese merchant ships tied up at the pier.
“What encouraged us to locate PROJECTR® Taipei here was the fast- growing cluster of virtual reality companies also domiciled in this part of the city,” enthuses PROJECTR Founder, Michael Gregg. “There’s a new breed of merchants now revitalising Taipei’s oldest business district of Datong.”
The district is home to Taiwan’s cross reality association, TAVAR, the new offices for the Digital Content Industry Promotion Office (DCIPO), and amazing locally founded studios such as Funique VR.
Our architects and contractors are now advancing with the fit-out and we are anticipating a soft opening in November, with residents progressively arriving from then.
