Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, announced today that on June 1 2018, it began construction of Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport NUMAZU (tentative name) in the Higashishiiji district of Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture. Mitsui Fudosan is promoting the development of the project as its first regional shopping center in the eastern area of Shizuoka Prefecture. The facility is planned to open in fall 2019, and some of the stores in the shopping center will be announced in advance.

The project site will have access to an outstanding transport network, facing Japan National Route 1 on its southern side and a widened city planning road named the Kanaoka Ukishima Route on its northern side. The site will also offer excellent regional access from surrounding areas, being situated very close to the Ashitaka Smart Interchange (IC) on the Tomei Expressway and the Surugawan-Numazu Smart IC on the Shin Tomei Expressway.

This facility will be located at the core of a plot of land (approx. 74 acres (30 hectares)) that has been included in urbanization plans as a result of a change in city planning on March 31, 2017. Work to develop public facilities is planned to be undertaken, including widening the surrounding roads and green plaza and traffic plazas in three locations on the site, totaling approx. 53, 819 ft2 (5000 m2). The facility’s total floor area is planned to be approx. 1,776,000 ft2 (165,000 m2), with store floor space approx. 688,900 ft2 (64,000 m2) on four floors. There will be about 220 stores, with a parking lot for 3,500 vehicles planned for the facility.

The facility is expected to serve as a new hub of urban development in Numazu City. Mitsui Fudosan seeks to create a shopping environment that appeals as a community center where many people gather, and contributes to robust neighborhood creation.
