Nihonbashi Muromachi Mitsui Tower stands at the corner of Chuo-dori and Edo-dori Avenues, and is a major new addition to the Nihonbashi area, which lies between the Kanda and Tokyo Station areas. The building features a hall and conference facilities suitable for a wide range of uses, a large outdoor plaza with an extensive roof and landscaping rich in greenery to provide liveliness, and a commercial area with 31 shops, including eslite spectrum nihonbashi and another Japan-first outlet. Through its mixed-use and intangible value-added features, the building exemplifies a mixed-use facility development that will energize a diverse range of visitors. Moreover, the development includes an energy plant that is part of the Nihonbashi Smart Energy Project. Under this project, the first in Japan, the plant is capable of suppling not only the building but the surrounding area with electric power and heat on a stable basis. This enhances energy resilience with uninterrupted energy supply in emergencies,* as well as energy efficiency and CO2 reduction for eco-friendly neighborhood creation. Mitsui Fudosan will continue to promote Urban Smart Cities to meet ESG challenges.
*Energy resilience: robustness of energy supply networks
To create more richly evolved offices serving not only as places to work, but as places to actualize enriched business life, we offer Mitsui Office for Tomorrow, a shared space on the fifth and sixth floors where tenant enterprise members can access facilities and services.
We’re giving customers a new experience in historic, traditional Nihonbashi, with places where they can spend quality time. These include two shops opening in Japan for the first time (one of them being eslite spectrum nihonbashi), five opening for the first time in the Kanto area, 10 opening for the first time in commercial facilities, and 10 with unique new business models. In all, there are 31 shops offering first-class domestic and international dining as well as merchandise and experiences for the discerning.
Mitsui Fudosan, in collaboration with Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd., has built an energy plant in the complex to supply energy to nearby buildings and commercial facilities on an ongoing basis, not only in emergencies. This is the first energy network of its kind in Japan. Generating power with gas from a medium-pressure line, which is highly reliable in disasters, ensures stable energy supplies and enhanced, multifaceted energy resilience, and contributes to the creation of reliable, safe neighborhoods. The aim is to realize local energy consumption supported by local production, with energy efficiency and CO2 reduction for eco-friendly neighborhood creation, by making effective use of waste heat produced during the power generation process.
