The Taipei City Government is to dissolve its contract with scandal-tainted
real-estate developer Radium Life Tech Co (日勝生) on a MRT project in Nangang District (南港), Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said yesterday morning during an interview on Hit FM radio.
Ko told Hit FM radio host Clara Chou (周玉蔻) that the developer was trying to “make a carbon copy of MeHAS City” (美河市) with the Nangang Depot Joint Development Project.
He then said he would cut Radium Life out of the deal.
The Taipei City Government and Radium Life have been in mediation over the city’s claim for NT$7.6 billion (US$228.66 million) in compensation for alleged fraudulent appraisals in connection with the MRT Xiaobitan Station project, also known as the MeHAS City project, in New Taipei City’s Sindian District (新店).
