I recently came across yet another abandoned Taiwanese development that Flickrtarian Airman 19_19 claims is a futuristic-looking hotel.
"The land it's built on is reserved by the government for public works/purposes/use only, which hotels do not fall under. It's easy to get building permits for almost anything, but you need a separate permit to actually operate such things. Apparently several decades ago it was common practice to get the building permit, build your hotel, and then bribe an official into giving you the operator's permit. Unfortunately, this hotel was built just as the government began cracking down on such corruption, and as such was never given permission to open."
