Mitsui & Co., Ltd.
Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd.
Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (“Mitsui”, Head Office: Tokyo, President and CEO: Tatsuo Yasunaga) and Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. (“Mitsui Fudosan”, Head Office: Tokyo, President and CEO: Masanobu Komoda) are pleased to announce the completion of Otemachi One, an integrated development project in the No. 2 Section of the Otemachi 1-chome District. Construction was completed on Sunday, February 23. Thirty commercial outlets will be opened in the new development, mainly in the Otemachi One Avenue commercial area, and the grand opening will be held on Tuesday, May 12, 2020. (Please note that some retail outlets will commence trading after the grand opening.)
Otemachi One is a large-scale integrated development scheme combining the knowledge and achievements of Mitsui & Co., as a global creator of diverse business initiatives, and Mitsui Fudosan, as an urban development innovator. In addition to advanced facilities, including offices, halls, conference venues, commercial outlets, and a hotel, as well as a large green space, it is one of the biggest developments ever undertaken in the Otemachi area.
Otemachi One is also linked directly to Otemachi subway station. The area will feature numerous restaurants, especially in the Otemachi One Avenue underground commercial area, offering lunches, takeout and dinner venues. In addition, the 30 outlets will include service facilities, such as a convenient running station and a clinic mall.
The Otemachi Mitsui Hall, which offers views of the Imperial Palace, will be opened on Friday, May 15, as a multipurpose venue for events ranging from international conferences to concerts. Other features will include the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi, which will open in July, and the Otemachi One Garden, scheduled for completion at the end of 2022, with the biggest green space in the Otemachi district at approximately 6,000m2 in size. This major development will meet the need for greater diversity in the day-to-day environment for office workers, while also helping to heighten the international competitiveness of Otemachi and Tokyo.
The construction of these properties was used as an opportunity to update district cooling and heating systems and improve disaster-preparedness in the Otemachi district. The buildings feature the most effective seismic damping structures available, and offer the highest standard of safety and security in Japan. For example, the buildings are equipped with dual-fuel emergency generators capable of operating on both medium-pressure gas and oil to provide greater electric power self-sufficiency in the event of a disaster, as well as enhanced provision for the accommodation of people unable to reach their homes in disasters.

Mitsui & Co. will relocate its Head Office to the MITSUI & CO. Building in May 2020. As the developer of Otemachi One, Mitsui & Co. has established an urban area designed to create diversity and new value. In its new Head Office, it aims to enhance the potential of every individual employee and create new value for its various internal and external partners and customers through initiatives based on the Work-X (Workplace Experience) concept.
Many progressive companies in various industries, including major international corporations and leading Japanese companies, have secured space in Otemachi One Tower. These include The Norinchukin Bank, Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd., Dell Japan Inc., PwC Japan Group, and UBS Group. Space availability in the building is close to zero.
With a variety of employee amenities, executive services, IT services, and other benefits available exclusively to corporate tenants, Otemachi One Tower is an ideal location for a main corporate office. It also offers Japan’s highest level of safety and security. Otemachi One Tower provides a premium office environment.
Owing to an extensive range of services and facilities made possible by this large-scale development scheme, as well as a flagship office of WORK STYLING, offering a shared office service at multiple locations, Otemachi One Tower is the ideal location for the creation of workstyles based on a variety of business scenarios reflecting today’s increasingly diverse and globalized social environment.
In addition, there are plans for the introduction of “the Throne” service, which allows people in Otemachi One leased offices to check for vacant cubicles in bathrooms on working floors via a special web page. This service is designed to improve the working environment by alleviating bathroom crowding.
As companies promote workstyle innovation, people who work in offices are increasingly thinking of more ways to enhance their working environment, or of things they would like to do more with the time freed up by productivity improvements. We aim to respond to these aspirations by providing spaces in which your “more” can become a reality. In December 2020, we will launch “Mitsui Office for Tomorrow” membership facilities and services for corporate tenants in Otemachi One to enhance your workstyle experience.

Mitsui Fudosan plans to open one of its largest WORK STYLING offices, a shared office space provider on the sixth floor of the Otemachi One Tower, in the spring of 2021. It includes WORK STYLING “SHARE”, a shared office space service which can be rented in 10-minute increments, including other offices located across the country, and WORK STYLING “FLEX”, a flexible office service accommodating a variety of business needs and situations of corporate customers. WORK STYLING goes beyond the simple provision of office space. Member companies benefit from high added-value shared office spaces designed to facilitate business growth and new value creation.
To improve autonomous power supply capacity in the event of a disaster, the building is equipped with a cogeneration system capable of generating power using medium-pressure gas, as well as duel-fuel emergency generators that run on both oil and medium-pressure gas. The building will also have sufficient oil reserves to operate for 72 hours in the event the supply of medium-pressure gas is interrupted. If electric power and gas supplies are disrupted, it will be possible to supply power and heat continuously not only to the public areas of the building, but also to the private areas for assuring business continuity.
Otemachi One is equipped with HiDAX-R oil dampers of the latest technology developed by Kajima Corporation. These systems are highly effective in situations ranging from wind-driven motion to an intensity 7 earthquake. They are especially effective for the prevention of shaking caused by intensity 4-5 earthquakes or long-cycle seismic motion, which are common in Japan, and for the gradual reduction of shaking over a short period of time.
The main plant for the district heating and cooling system, which is vital to business continuity in the Otemachi One area, will be relocated within the area and upgraded without any interruption to its functionality. The environmental performance of the system and its capacity to operate during emergencies will be also enhanced, along with its ability to withstand flooding and earthquakes. Following this upgrade, the system will play an expanded role as the hub of the energy network for the Otemachi district. Heat is provided by one of the most efficient boiler system in Japan. Other equipment includes high-efficiency inverter-type turbo chillers based on the advanced technology. The system is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by around 1,000 tons per year by actively utilizing not only waste heat from its gas cogeneration system, but also unused energy such as waste heat from greywater, boiler blow water, etc.
The complex will offer temporary accommodation for 2,400 people (approximately 4,000m2), as well as storage space for emergency provisions (approximately 250m2, 22,000 meals). There will also be emergency wells.
Otemachi One has PAL grade 3, ERR grade 3 and CASBEE S class equivalent*.

Grand opening on Tuesday, May 12, 2020
Thirty commercial outlets will be opened on the first and second basement floors of Otemachi One, with most located in the Otemachi One Avenue area. From morning to lunchtime, through to the evening, these outlets will provide quality time and new ways of enjoying Otemachi for office workers, as well as a wide range of visitors. The availability checking service VACAN will be introduced to provide real-time information on vacant tables for each restaurant, allowing those with limited time to smoothly receive service.
With an extensive mix of popular, acclaimed restaurants, Otemachi One Avenue offers many enjoyable lunch options. In the evening, many of these restaurants are suitable for a casual meal while enjoying business communication with colleagues and associates. The atrium design linking the first and second basement floors creates space with a sense of openness. The area offers many choices, including restaurants that can be used to entertain customers, and outlets selling gift items.
Otemachi One Avenue has facilities offering services to help office employees maintain good health, including a drugstore, a running station, and a clinic providing convenient access to medical advice, as well as other outlets providing services required by office workers, such as a bank and a convenience store.
