Taipei Summer Universiade’s Athletes’ Village Turning into Social Housing
Upon the conclusion of the 12-day Taipei Summer Universiade on Sept. 30, the Universiade Athletes’ Village is to be turning into a social housing complex, the Ministry of the Interior said.

The housing complex, including 3,408 one to four-room housing units and 82 ground floor commercial units as well as a kindergarten, other social welfare facilities and space for young entrepreneurs, will be operated and administered by the National Housing and Urban Renewal Agency. Small families, singles, and the economical and social disadvantaged, from around the island can apply to lease the social housing units, according to the Ministry of the Interior.

To accommodate athletes from around the world, the Central Government in 2012 provided a piece of land close to the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Access MRT System’s Linkou Station and set aside a special budget, and, the Taipei City Government was entrusted to build a social housing complete. The social housing complex was lent to the Taipei City Government as athletes' village during the 2017 Universiade.

The Ministry of the Interior pointed out that the 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade was the biggest international event in Taiwan over the past few years. The ministry plans to keep record of the memorable event by setting up an exhibition area at the public space on the ground floor. It is considered that several housing units will be reserved for foreign delegates to stay over when they visit Taiwan as tourists in the future. On the one hand, the memory of the splendid event will be preserved, and, on the other, such a setting will serve the residents and bring prosperity to the community.

The Taipei City Government should restore the public housing complex, which was partly converted in order to be used as an athletes' village, to its original design. The restoration project is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. The public housing complex will be returned to the Central Government after passing the safety inspection and being given a use license. It will be operated and administered by the National Housing and Urban Renewal Agency.
