One Park Taipei comprises two high-rise residential towers adjacent to Da’an Park, in the heart of the Da’an district, Taipei. It is a 26-hectare site which contains a vast area of public green space - a popular destination within the local area. The two towers are staggered to maximize views across the park to the west, and to the stunning views of Yang Ming Mountain to the north, the Wulai hot springs district to the south, and the city's iconic Taipei 101 tower. The south tower is 35 storeys and the north tower is 31 storeys.
Currently the two highest residential buildings in Taipei, the development has achieved the 'EEWH' green building certification system in Taiwan - with buildings assessed on their biodiversity, carbon emissions and construction waste reduction, daily energy conservation, greenery, indoor environment, water conservation, water content of the site, and sewage and waste disposal facility improvement.

The building marks a radical departure from the norm in Taipei’s residential real estate market and -where the severe constraints imposed by earthquake and typhoon normally wear heavily on the city’s built fabric -One Park Taipei’s fine scale, dignity and the softly reflected light from its zinc surfaces, set it apart.
