Taipei City Government, the administrative hub of the city, was founded in October 1945 as a provincial municipality.

After Taipei was raised to a Cabinet level municipality in 1967, its services grew tremendously with the large increase of population. The old city government building could only accommodate about 1,000 employees, and many units were scattered in various rented offices.

In order to carry out the entire work performance of this government to its best and to enhance the service quality for citizens, a new city government building was erected in Xinyi District in 1994.

The new city government building is a 12-story architecture with a total floor space of about 197,000 square meters, capable of accommodating 6,000 employees. In the high-ceiling patio and the Family Theater on the second floor, events such as arts exhibitions and performances, as well as speeches are frequently held, and they are loved by city citizens.

A wide range of activities and large-scale events are also organized in the City Plaza in front of the building to provide citizens with diverse choices for recreations.
