Tokyo, Japan, March 7 2019 – Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, announced today it has decided to name the facility under development in the Higashishiiji district of Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture as “Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport NUMAZU.” The facility is the first regional shopping center in the eastern area of Shizuoka Prefecture and is expected to open for business in October 2019, with 180 stores announced in advance.
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, and it will play the role of a new base for neighborhood creation in Numazu City. Work to develop public facilities is planned to be undertaken, including widening the surrounding roads and traffic plazas in three locations on the site, totaling approx. 53, 819 ft2 (5,000 m2).
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. Mitsui Fudosan is also considering installing a bus stop within the facility for a regular bus service.
In addition to providing a variety of one-stop shopping services that can be enjoyed by customers in a wide range of age groups, the facility is also actively undertaking all sorts of measures to satisfy store tenants and employees as well. The facility is preparing an environment that makes it easier to work, including an employee breakroom with enhancements to function and attention to design details, a convenience store annex, and a parking lot for employee use. To support employment opportunities at the stores, the LaLaport NUMAZU Employment Center (Subcontractor: AIDEM Inc.) will be set up and begin recruitment for job vacancies at each store in succession starting from Sunday, April 14 in the form of group orientations.
Details for other stores aside from those released in advance will be announced in June 2019.
