Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd.
Tokyo, Japan, December 3, 2020 - Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, has been developing WORK STYLING shared offices for corporations. As of December 3, 2020, the service continues to expand with approximately 600 member companies and over 150,000 registered members. In response to new work style changes, the Company will now launch WORK STYLING SOLO satellite offices specializing in individual rooms for corporate clients on December 8, 2020 as a new service in addition to its existing WORK STYLING FLEX serviced offices for corporate clients and WORK STYLING SHARE multi-site satellite offices for corporate clients. By the end of fiscal 2020, the WORK STYLING network will encompass over 100 locations nationwide, including 21 partner locations such as Mitsui Garden Hotels.
WORK STYLING has been providing measures and services that help to improve productivity and creativity in response to changes in the times and the requirements of member companies and users. Going forward, WORK STYLING will work to propose new ways of working as a service that provides diverse work styles for corporate clients.
An increase in people working from home due to the spread of COVID-19 has brought to light several problems with this mode of working. There has been an increase in demand for environments close to home where people can concentrate on teleworking. At WORK STYLING SHARE, there has been an increasing need for individual rooms for one person that can be used for web conferencing and so forth. In addition, many members have said that they want to use the service close to their homes. WORK STYLING has focused on these needs to launch new WORK STYLING SOLO satellite offices specializing in individual rooms, mainly in suburban areas, starting in December 2020.
This is a satellite office specializing in individual rooms for corporate clients that can be used by WORK STYLING members instead of working from home. Members can use WORK STYLING SOLO and WORK STYLING SHARE locations nationwide in increments of 10 minutes.
Locations are to open gradually starting from December 8, 2020. Thirteen sites are planned for opening during fiscal 2020, with a total of 30 sites to open during fiscal 2021, mainly in suburban areas around the Tokyo Metropolitan Area.
Nakano, Ogikubo, Jiyugaoka, Sangenjaya, Shimokitazawa, Toyosu, Fuchu, Minami Osawa, Noborito, Shin-Yurigaoka, Center Kita, Totsuka, Fujisawa, Urawa, Moto-Yawata, Kashiwanoha
*Toyosu, Minami Osawa, Shin-Yurigaoka, and Kashiwanoha are scheduled to open on December 8, 2020.
To respond flexibly to the various needs of members, WORK STYLING SOLO will develop a mobility type location in addition to office buildings. The service will be launched on December 8, 2020 at Urban dock LaLaport TOYOSU, LaLaport KASHIWANOHA, and MITSUI OUTLET PARK TAMA MINAMI OSAWA.
WORKSTYLING will utilize the combined capabilities of the Mitsui Fudosan Group to propose new ways of working as a service that provides diverse work styles.
From December 4, 2020, three hotels: sequence MIYASHITA PARK, sequence KYOTO GOJO, and sequence SUIDOBASHI, will be added as partnership locations of WORKS STYLING SHARE. This will bring the number of WORK STYLING SHARE partnership locations to 21, including Mitsui Garden Hotels.
