Farglory Land Development Co (遠雄建設) brushed off his and the city’s requests for
details on Taipei Dome construction safety plans, providing only perfunctory answers, Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said on Wednesday.
“From start to finish [Farglory] has been extremely arrogant,” Ko said, adding that the firm’s “shoot me” attitude was “unacceptable.”
The mayor said he was “anxious” about potential damage to the historic Songshan Tobacco Factory adjacent to the Dome site and that Farglory should act in a “responsible” manner.
When the city asked Farglory to explain how it was trying to minimize potential damage to the Songshan site during construction of the Dome, the company submitted a 300-page report on how it would repair the Songshan site after the Dome was completed, making him wonder if the firm had even paid attention to the city’s questions, he said.
