The Taipei City Government is the government that governs the Taipei City of Taiwan. The government building is located at Taipei City Hall in Xinyi District, Taipei. Taipei City Government was founded in October 1945 as a provincial municipality. The original city hall was located at the site of the Taihoku City Hall (modern-day Zhongshan Hall) in Zhongzheng District. In 1967, Taipei City status was upgraded to a Cabinet-level municipality. Its service thus grew much bigger with the large increase in population. Zhongshan Hall could only accommodate around 1,000 employees and many other units were scattered in various rented offices.
In order to carry the city government jobs effectively, a new Taipei City Hall was built in 1994 in Xinyi District.
