Rd. in Songshan District is a multi-purpose arena with a seating capacity of 15,000, built in late-2000 by the City government on the site of its weather-beaten predecessor: the Taipei Municipal Baseball Stadium.

It has a seating capacity of up to 15,350 for concerts with an arena (theater-in-the-round) stage or for basketball games; 13,500 for remote-stage concerts or large assemblies; 10,000 for concerts with a proscenium stage or performance art events. The Ice Land, a secondary venue of Taipei Arena, is a year-round ice-skating rink with an international standard size, besides offering standardized indoor ice for such sports as ice hockey and speed skating. The Ice Land is available for public skating on weekdays;it also offers an array of education/training programs, accommodating up to 800 seats in the audience area. In addition, there are also 6,000+ m2 of business area inside the Taipei Arena to offer audiences a comfortable dining and recreational experience. As part of Taipower’s underground transformer station project, a north-facing outdoor square was constructed to connect that business section to shopping blocks nearby.
