Abstract Typical parameters of {ital B} factory colliders are presented, along with their justification. Design challenges that arise from these parameter choices are indicated. These challenges appear in both the physics design of the collider and its technological implementation. An overview of the three active {ital B} factory projects (PEP-II, KEK-B, and the CESR upgrade) is briefly given, and technical approaches adopted by the projects to deal with the design challenges are outlined. Project status and plans for the various {ital B} factory projects are also indicated. Because the problems faced by the designers of {ital B} factories are closely related to those that will be faced in the design of a Tau-Charm Factory ({tau}cF), the solutions adopted by the {ital B} factory designers can in many cases be carried over to the {tau}cF essentially unchanged. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
