Development site

MFLP Prologis Park Kawagoe will be developed approx. seven minutes by car from the Kawagoe interchange on the Kan-Etsu Expressway. This location provides excellent access to major freeways, the Tomei, Chuo, Kan-Etsu and Tohoku expressways, along with exceptional potential for efficient transportation connecting central Tokyo with points throughout Japan. The site is also only six minutes by foot from Minami-Otsuka Station on the Seibu Shinjuku Line, providing a convenient commute for employees and offering an advantage in recruiting facility workers.

Overview of facility development

Project plans for MFLP Prologis Park Kawagoe call for a multi-tenant logistics facility with four above ground floors, double ramp ways and total floor area of approx. 1,399,308 ft2 (approx. 130,000 m2) on a site of approx. 645,834 ft2 (approx. 60,000 m2). It will be the lsargest logistics facility along the Kan-Etsu Expressway south of the Ken-O Expressway. The west side of the first floor is slated to have double-sided truck berths, and flow lines on the premises for trucks and passenger vehicles will be divided to ensure high work efficiency and safety levels. The plans for the facility will show consideration for the environment and BCP by being illuminated fully by LED lighting and being equipped with an emergency use generator.
