Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, announced today that it decided to name the lifestyle-oriented retail facility currently under construction in Funabashi, Chiba, “Mitsui Shopping Park LaLa Terrace TOKYO-BAY.” The facility is scheduled to open in November 2023.
This project was selected by Funabashi City through a public solicitation for business operators for a city-owned land utilization project fronting the JR Minami-Funabashi Station South Exit. By promoting development through a public-private partnership that takes advantage of the strong potential of the city-owned land fronting the station, Mitsui Fudosan will create an attractive neighborhood forming a hub suitable as the gateway to the waterfront area, while also creating a lively atmosphere and improving circulation.
With a large open plaza of approximately 5,000 m2 where local residents can gather and relax, and a total of 36 stores to meet their daily needs, the facility will create a highly attractive retail environment to serve as a community hub, contributing to the creation of a lively neighborhood. Mitsui Fudosan will also work to help achieve a sustainable society by reducing CO2 emissions, etc. through efficient energy operations and management.
