ORIX to Develop the Multi-tenant type “Hirakata II Logistics Center” in Osaka Prefecture

TOKYO, Japan – July 31, 2018 – ORIX Corporation (“ORIX”), announced that it has decided to develop the Hirakata II Logistics Center in the city of Hirakata, Osaka Prefecture. Construction will begin in August 2018 with completion scheduled for January 2020, and ORIX has begun taking applications for tenant contracts.

Rendering of Completed Facility

The Hirakata II Logistics Center is located within 30km of central Osaka, along National Route 1 which connects Osaka and Kyoto. About 4km from the Hirakata-higashi interchange on the Second Keihan Highway, and about 5km from the Yawata-Kyotanabe interchange of the Shin-Meishin Expressway, it allows for the selection of delivery routes according to traffic congestion conditions. It is also just a one-minute walk from the Kokudo-Shodai bus stop, making the location convenient to public transportation and advantageous for hiring part-time workers.

The building consists of four above-ground floors with a total floor area of approximately 56,860m2 in a multi-tenant type facility that can accommodate as many as four tenants, with leasing available from a minimum block size of approximately 1,3223m2. It is equipped with truck berths, standby space for up to nine 10-ton trucks, as well as a parking lot for up to 123 passenger vehicles. Emergency generators meet the needs of business continuity plans, and LED lighting employed throughout the building enables tenants to reduce their electricity usage.

To date, ORIX has developed four logistics centers in Osaka Prefecture, including the Hirakata Logistics Center located in Nagaotani-machi, Hirakata City and completed in July 2015. The planned opening of the Takatsuki segment of the Shin-Meishin Expressway is expected to improve the convenience of transport to Kobe, and ORIX will continue working to identify optimal locations for logistics facilities as it moves forward with new business development.
