Tokyo, Japan, May 16, 2017? Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd. announced today that they have decided on msb Tamachi(musubu Tamachi.“musubu”means“connecting”) for the district name of the joint TGMM Shibaura Project (tentative name; hereafter, “the project”) being developed in the Shibaura area at the east exit of JR Tamachi Station.

The area at the east exit of JR Tamachi Station was historically a commercial district and is expected to see further development going forward due to the construction of tower condominiums and station-area redevelopment projects in recent years. The district name msb Tamachi reflects a desire for the project, which is aimed at the creation of a mixed-use urban district near the station, to play the role of organically connecting people, things and ideas - work time and leisure time, tradition and innovation, Mita and Shibaura - and to enhance the district’s communicative capacity.

With the advanced environment and energy technologies of Tokyo Gas and the real estate development expertise cultivated in the Nihonbashi and Marunouchi areas respectively by Mitsui Fudosan and Mitsubishi Estate, the project will promote creating a neighborhood that is a progressive and appealing mixed-use urban district and which will fulfill the commitment expressed in the msb Tamachi name.
