HistoryEdit

 
Zhongshan Hall (formerly Taihoku City Hall).

Taipei City Government was founded in October 1945 as a provincial municipality. The original city hall was located at the site of the Taihoku City Hall (modern-day Zhongshan Hall) in Zhongzheng District. In 1967, Taipei City status was upgraded to a Cabinet-level municipality. Its service thus grew much bigger with the large increase of population. Zhongshan Hall could only accommodate around 1,000 employees and many other units were scattered in various rented offices.

In order to carry the city government jobs effectively, a new Taipei City Hall was built in 1994 in Xinyi District.[1]
