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 headquarters has broken ground in Taiwan. 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.
