The Mitsui Fudosan Group is positioning the concept of model smart cities as a response to a wide range of social challenges, including environmental challenges, a super-aging society, and economic stagnation. We are promoting the development of next-generation neighborhoods with participation from the public, private, and academic sectors.
Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City, in Kashiwa City, Chiba prefecture, is adjacent to Kashiwanoha-campus Station on the Tsukuba Express line. The project saw its full-scale launch in 2011 and offers three models for social problem solution: Environmental Harmony City, Health and Longevity City, and New Industry Creation City. These models are structured as flat platforms open to anyone wishing to participate in neighborhood creation, including universities, enterprises, and citizens. Our goal is to achieve independent neighborhood creation to establish an image of a global future, sustainable in both tangible and intangible terms.
In February 2018, tenants began occupying rental condominiums designed for those raising children, at the large-scale Park City Kashiwa-no-ha Campus The Gate Tower West. The goal was to create residences that help parents address such challenges as extended waiting periods for nursery school admission, and a lack of child-rearing environments designed to support working parents. Along with an on-site nursery school and after-school care facility for elementary school students, the complex features a pediatrics clinic and facilities for ill and convalescing children. The residence will provide an environment that is fully-equipped to enable even working parents to raise children with peace of mind.
Cicol Nursery School is a non-registered entity offering child care services during regular operating hours as well as temporary care and night care until 22:00. Cicol After School is a facility designed for elementary school students and cultivates their capacity to be active in international society.
These facilities include Cicol Park, an indoor play land with a wide range of toys for children to enjoy, and Cicol Work, a space where parents can work while monitoring their children.
Caps Clinic Kashiwanoha offers pediatric medical services day and night, 365 days a year. Ohana Kids Care, located next door, is equipped to care for ill and convalescing children.
Kashiwa-no-ha Campus Clinic is a member of the Sesame Street Pediatric and Dental Education Program from Sesame Workshop, a US non-profit organization.
The residential complex at Park City Kashiwa-no-ha Campus The Gate Tower West offers a range of support for child rearing, including a residents-only nursery school and 365 days a year pediatric care. It also features an attractive selection of common-use facilities, including a free natural hot spring bath, a fitness gym, and study rooms with full Wi-Fi. . Safety and security are outstanding: the tower structure incorporates base-isolation technology to mitigate the effect of earthquakes, the premises are fully secure, and there is emergency electrical power supply. We hope you will visit Kashiwa-no-ha and experience the atmosphere of the community as well as the allure of The Gate Tower West.
