Matsubushi Logistics Center has a total floor space of 77,372 m2. With a minimum block size of approximately 8,264 m2, it can accommodate as many as eight tenants. Located within approximately 30 km from central Tokyo and easily accessed through the Tokyo Gaikan Expressway and National Route 16, it is in an area ideal for a logistics hub. The center is equipped with driveways and truck berths* through the middle of the building on the first and third floors. In addition to enabling tenants to comply with business continuity plans (BCP) through means such as the installation of emergency generators, environmentally-friendly LED lighting is also employed.
Furthermore, based on the concept of “promoting health while working,” at the shared area, there are a café lounge with free Wi-Fi where people can refresh such as during lunch time, an expansive outdoor terrace, and a fitness room. Those who wish can also make use of the health promotion program Medically offered by MEDCARE, Inc. Besides free rental of wristband-type wearable devices linked to a smartphone app allowing management of steps taken daily and other information, the program allows users to consult doctors and certified nutritionists online for medical and nutrition advice.
In recent years, the demand for logistics facilities is increasing against the backdrop of e-commerce market expansion and other factors. Going forward, ORIX will continue to promote new developments while searching for locations ideal for logistics facilities and to provide state-of-the-art logistics facilities to meet the needs of diverse tenant companies.
