Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

New Costco Coming to Guandu, Beitou District, Taipei

So, it's now been confirmed that Costco will be coming to Guandu, Beitou District on the border of Danshui. My contact is forbidden from giving me the address at this time, but says it will definitely be in the Guandu Science and Technology Park near Asus, Mercedes Benz, Toyota, and Shuo.

Here's a map of the general location and my two guesses where it will end up being built.

The gist of the news releases for those of you who don't habla is.....

1. It will open near the end of the first quarter next year in the Guandu Science and Technology Park.
2. The size of the agreed upon location is 5,732 ping.
3. The lease agreement is for 40 years with Costco constructing their own building and parking lots.

Here are some news releases.

COSTCO關渡店 最快明年Q1底開幕

房東為東森國際 合約期限40年

承租位於新北市關渡科技園區的5732坪土地,最快明年第1季底開出第11家店。

東森國際13日公告與好市多簽約,正式承租關渡科技園區5732坪土地,好市多將自行興建賣場與停車場,合約期限40年。

據了解,東森國際40年租約共可取得總租金逾5.2億元,平均年報酬逾3%,東森國際主管指出,一方面可活化關渡土地資產,另一方面也可增加當地就業機會。


東森積極活化關渡地

另,位於關渡科技園區的其餘土地,東森國際將規劃為海峽兩岸文創與電子商務營運中心。東森國際主管說,與好市多簽約後,會立即進行申請建照、動工等後續作業,該區將規劃成4棟建築物,其中3棟是海峽兩岸文創與電子商務營運中心。

關渡科技園區土地共達1萬1443坪,是北市北投、士林地區的重要門戶。

東森集團分析,該園區地理位置優越,緊鄰捷運關渡站,距台北自由貿易港僅20分鐘車程,且周邊有華碩、和碩、中華賓士、TOYOTA等知名廠商,都在附近設立企業總部,因而被好市多相中,加上淡水、北投、士林一帶消費者眾多,相當看好賣場發展性。

And the big-ass loaf of toilet paper gods! Woohoo!
Like national hero Abdukadyr Urazbekov, the first Chairman of the Central Executive Committee of the Kyrgyz SSR, you choose to stick to your principals, even if it means becoming beheaded like national hero Abdukadyr Urazbekov.

Any update on this? Still scheduled for opening around the end of the first quarter in 2014, so I guess sometime in spring?

I'm also wondering if there's any current news. Would be lovely to have one that close to me.

Bumpity bump. I remember hearing about six months ago that the Guandu Carrefour had been delayed for about a year - does anyone have more recent news about possible opening dates (if ever)?

EDIT: oops. I meant Costco, not Carrefour.

We're still waiting for the one in Keelung (Jilong) city to open, the building is up, but they've been working in it for nearly 3 years.
