Toyosu Urban Development and Toyosu Bayside Cross
Connecting with adjacent facilities will create a horizontal, mixed-use facility in Toyosu 2-Chome and 3-Chome
Mitsui Fudosan has collaborated with IHI Corporation in the urban development of Toyosu since the 1980s, including the development of offices, retail facilities, and residences. In particular, LaLaport Toyosu, which opened in 2006, has helped to draw attention to the Toyosu area, and has become a local landmark.
Toyosu Bayside Cross is the latest addition to a large-scale development in the Toyosu 2-Chome and 3-Chome Districts that started in the 1980s. The project is located in Toyosu, which is central, within 10 minutes of the Ginza area (approximately 6 minutes from Ginza-itchome Station on the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line), while offering a sense of the sea and greenery. To make use of these features, the project includes building the Toyosu Park Bridge to provide access to the adjacent Toyosu Park. It also includes a deck that provides direct access from the project to the existing LaLaport Toyosu. This project will have a direct link to Toyosu Station on the Yurikamome Line and Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line, forming the center of a network with the surrounding area and making it easier to travel around. In this way, the project will not only serve as a vertical multi-use development, but also as a horizontal one enabling easy access to the park, the sea, and the shopping zone, helping to create greater vitality across the entire area.

Toyosu Bayside Cross concept
The word “cross” in the name of the block evokes the image of an ocean crossing, a reference to the history of the block as a ship yard that simultaneously carried the meaning of taking up challenges on new frontiers. “Cross” has various other associations with people and things, both tangible and intangible, such as the area’s location at the intersection of urban convenience with the natural environment, as well as the combination of diverse facilities including offices, restaurants, shops, and hotels. As such, the name is filled with the aspiration for the creation of new industries and further improvement in productivity.
Toyosu Bayside Cross logo
The logo combines a “T” as the initial of Toyosu Bayside Cross with a seagull to invoke the sea. To symbolize the “cross” concept, the organic blending of the land and the sea is represented by the gradation from bright green to blue.

Energy center to provide electricity and heat inside and outside the development area using gas-powered generation
On the 5th to 8th floors of Toyosu Bayside Cross Tower, the energy center is jointly installed by Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. and Mitsui Fudosan for Mitsuifudosan TG Smart Energy Co., Ltd. to supply the development area and the Toyosu Center Building outside the development area. (This will be the second “designated power transmission project*” for Mitsui Fudosan involving power transmission outside of the redevelopment zone, following the Nihonbashi area.)
This energy center uses moderate pressure gas electricity generation, which has proved to be highly durable in earthquakes, continuing to supply electricity without suffering damage in the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. The system is therefore able to supply a certain level of electricity and heat even during grid power outages. There are several additional features to ensure that the plant can provide a highly reliable energy supply: a dedicated large water tank is provided to supply cooling water to the plant equipment, so that heat can be supplied to the surrounding area even during a water supply stoppage, and the plant has been installed above ground so that it cannot be affected by flooding during natural disasters.
In addition to the supply of electricity and heat from this energy center, Toyosu Bayside Cross Tower is also equipped with oil-powered emergency generators and enough fuel for 72 hours of power, so that the building can maintain power, even if the moderate pressure gas system were to stop. The building provides safety, security, BCP functions by ensuring energy infrastructure during disasters and by introducing systems to support continuation of company’s operations and assist those unable to return home following a disaster, as well as installing seismic resistant systems.
* Designated power transmission project refers to entities that maintain and operate their own power electricity plants for transmission and supply of electricity to conduct a retail supply or retail electricity business for a designated supply point.
