Taipan Place Building Features
It is the first building to feature a fully unitized curtain wall. The building is managed by CB Richard Ellis.
The Taipan Place has high-speed elevators, basement car parking, main lobby, security gates, and banks.
The building management does not allow call centers, BPO’s, manpower agencies or network marketing companies to hold office in the building. This is mainly due to the high foot traffic that these businesses generate.
