The Taipei Dome (Chinese: 臺北大巨蛋; pinyin: Táiběi Dàjùdàn) is a multi-use stadium in Taipei, Taiwan, that was to start construction in 2007 and complete in 2011, although the start date has been delayed until October 2011. In addition to the stadium, the complex will include commercial facilities, including a shopping mall, movie theater, hotel, and office space. Once completed, it will be used mostly for baseball games but also can be used for other sporting events such as football and softball. It will be located at the corner of Zhongxiao East Rd. and Guangfu South Rd. Besides, it will be the main stadium of 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade.
In June 2010, the Taipei City Government rejected a plan to for a major expansion of the Taipei Dome stadium project. Requests to add more stores, a movie theater complex, and a hotel were denied due to traffic concerns in the area.
On December 9, 2010, the design for the dome passed the city's urban design review. The proposed design includes a 40,000-seat indoor stadium along with shopping and residential districts. The dome is being built through a contract between the city government and the Farglory Group. Construction is tentatively planned to start in July 2011. By March 2011, however, the environmental impact of construction had been delayed until April 2011. The assessment was postponed again in late March 2011 due to insufficient information from the contractor. In May 2011, the Environmental Impact Assessment Review Committee conditionally approved the project after commercial facilities space was decreased by 17.4% to 202,610 m2 (2,180,900 sq ft). On June 16, 2011, the project received final approval from the Urban Design Review Committee and construction started in October 2011.
