Park was launched Jan. 11 in southern Taiwan by the ROC Ministry of Culture.

The NT$120 million (US$3.6 million) undertaking involves refurbishing 30 percent of the total 17,943-square-meter floor space by the end of this year, 30 percent by year-end 2017 and the rest by the start of 2019. It is in addition to NT$500 million spent on upgrading the facility since 2008.

Situated by Chiayi Train Station, the 3.9-hectare park comprises 21 buildings and was set up in 2003. It is the site of the former Chiayi Brewery, which operated from 1916 to 1999 until relocation.

MOC Deputy Minister Tsai Ping-kun said the project breathes new life into the largest of the five cultural and creative parks overseen by the ministry, adding that it also helps establish a national hub for the innovation of traditional arts.     [FULL  STORY]
