Chien-Cheng Circle


Taipei, Taiwan (TW)
The Chien-Cheng Circle (Chinese: 建成圓環; pinyin: Jiànchéng Yuánhuán) or Taipei Circle, was once a bustling food market and a city landmark in the Datong district of Taipei. It existed 96 years from its opening during the Japanese colonial era, to its official closing on Sunday, July 2, 2006 after years of decline in resulting from two conflagrations in the 1990s and an unsuccessful project to revitalize the market in 2003. After some replanning, it was set to reopen in June 2009, but as of 2010 the reopening date is uncertain.
