The Taipei Dome (Chinese: 臺北大巨蛋; pinyin: Táiběi Dà jùdàn) is a multi-use stadium in Taipei, Taiwan, that was originally scheduled to start construction in 2007 and be completed in 2011, although the start date had been delayed until October 2011.[2] In addition to the stadium, there will be a complex that will include commercial facilities such as a shopping mall, movie theater, hotel, and office space.[2] Once completed, the stadium will be used mostly for baseball games, but it will also 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.[3] Additionally, it was previously planned to be the main stadium of 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade.[4]


In June 2010, the Taipei City Government rejected a plan 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.[5]

On December 9, 2010, the design for the dome passed the city's urban design review.[3] 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.[3] Construction was tentatively planned to start in July 2011.[3] By March 2011, however, the environmental assessment review process was delayed until April 2011.[6] The assessment was postponed again in late March 2011 due to insufficient information from the contractor.[7] 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).[8] On June 16, 2011, the project received final approval from the Urban Design Review Committee and construction started in October 2011.[2]


  • Cutting capacity may be solution to Taipei Dome impasse[9]
  • Taipei Dome contract is 'ridiculous': Ko Wen-je[10]


Taipei Dome will be accessible within walking distance North from Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall Station of the Taipei Metro.
