Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd.

Tokyo, Japan, October 9, 2019 – Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, announced today that MITSUI OUTLET PARK YOKOHAMA BAYSIDE will have its grand opening on Friday, April 10, 2020. The park, which is located in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture and operated by Mitsui Fudosan Retail Management Co., Ltd., is currently undergoing a full-scale reconstruction.

Since opening Japan’s first full-fledged outlet mall on the same site in Yokohama in 1998, Mitsui Fudosan has spearheaded the outlet business in Japan and now operates a total of 17 outlet facilities inside and outside the country. The Yokohama project draws on the company’s over 20 years of experience and performance in the outlet business, and as the company’s first full-scale reconstruction project involving an outlet facility, a number of enhancement initiatives are being conducted.

The number of tenants will be increased twofold to around 170 (including 12 opening for the first time at an outlet facility in Japan and three for the first time in the Kanto region). Many of the shops and restaurants are currently in the spotlight and include refined lifestyle brands and fine local eateries. By designing the facility to be integrated with the seaside environment, creating a new food court and enhancing common areas like plazas for more liveliness, it will evolve into a facility with high value for longer stays. By collaborating with the marina, local companies and organizations, and the local government, MITSUI OUTLET PARK YOKOHAMA BAYSIDE will be renewed as an outlet facility more fully rooted in the local community.

Facility Concept: “NEW MARINA LIFE”

“NEW MARINA LIFE” was chosen as the basic concept for the facility. It reflects the recognition that fine living proposals will be made in a seaside environment with shopping, dining, and participatory outdoor events in the plazas, plus views of one of the largest marinas in Asia.

The special characteristics of the local area, which encompasses Yokohama, Shonan, Hayama and Zushi, and Kamakura, will be drawn on to create a facility with high value for longer stays, where people can enjoy both bustling liveliness and the pleasant seaside.
