Chinatrust Bank Headquarters designed by NBBJ

After an international design competition and nearly two years of design, the high-profile, 2.5-million-square-foot Chinatrust Bank headquarters has broken ground in . Designed by the Los Angeles office of NBBJ, in cooperation with the local firm Fei & Cheng Associates, the project is slated to reach completion in 2012.

The Chinatrust Bank development will consist of a 30-story headquarters building, a 21-story commercial office building, a 10-story hotel, and a four-level retail center. The project is designed to accommodate the bank’s growth, while supporting its status as the “Best Bank in Taiwan,” as named in Asiamoney, Euromoney, and FinanceAsia publications.

    Cool design. I look forward to seeing more from this office!

    The renderings are cool, but can we see more drawings (plans, sections?) and project information (concept, sq. area, program, etc?)

    finally, someone is doing something original with a large scale project, and not just cranking out another silly twisting tower.
