The Gate of Taipei (Chinese: 台北雙子星大樓; pinyin: Táiběi Shuāngzǐxīng Dàlóu) is a supertall skyscraper development in Taipei, Taiwan. It includes two skyscrapers, the taller is 322.2 metres (1,057 ft) with 76 floors and the shorter is 243.0 metres (797 ft) with 56 floors.[1] It's near Taipei Station, Shin Kong Life Tower and Taipei Bus Station. When the complex is complete, it will be the 2nd tallest building in Taipei and 3rd tallest in Taiwan after Taipei 101 and Kaohsiung's Tuntex Sky Tower. It is estimated to cost NT$12 billion (US$414 million).[1] The two buildings (C1 and D1) were initially expected to open in 2016 and 2017, respectively;[1]however, the project was delayed in 2015 due to a series of complication in the bidding process, which is slated to restart at some point in 2017.[2]

The basement of building C1 is the terminus for the Taoyuan Airport MRT.[3]
