Tuntex Sky Tower

/ 鄭瑄頤

The Tuntex Sky Tower is the tallest skyscraper in Kaohsiung and it was the tallest skyscraper in Taiwan until the Taipei 101 replaced its title. With high speed elevators for the 85 floors, the Tuntex Sky Tower is a multifunctional building with offices, residential apartments, department store, hotel (Grand Formosa Hotel), and an observation deck. From the observation deck, views of the Kaohsiung City and Kaohsiung harbor can be seen. It is also an ideal place to watch the sunset in Kaohsiung.

The Tuntex Sky Tower was designed by the C.Y. Lee & Partners, who were also responsible for the design of the Taipei 101. With a unique architectural design, the Tuntex Sky Tower was constructed based on the Chinese character “gao”, which means tall. “Gao” is also the first character of the name of the city, Kaohsiung.
