TOKYO, Japan - July 10, 2019 - ORIX Corporation (“ORIX”) announced that it has opened Cross Office Roppongi, a new base in its Cross Office serviced office business brand, today.
Cross Office Roppongi is located approximately two minutes’ walk from Roppongi Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line and the Toei Subway Oedo Line. Cross Office Roppongi comprises two floors with 71 private office rooms, capacities ranging in size from 1 to 10 people, and provides a coworking space that has approximately 60 seats and encourages tenants to form business communities. There are also 4 conference rooms, a space for dealing with customers, and the reception area. We are pursuing convenience and efficiency by having English-speaking receptionists who can serve customers and receive postal items for tenants, as well as by making these shared services available for use by all tenants. As the equipment including chairs in the coworking space can be freely arranged, the space can also be utilized for events. In addition, the facility is decorated by not only digital art works but also art works created by a celebrated artist who expresses creative, active Roppongi to visually stimulate users.
Since ORIX established Cross Office Shibuya as its first base in October 2009, it has operated a total of 5 serviced offices. The others are in Shibuya, Uchisaiwaicho, Mita, and Shinjuku. With the diversification of working generation and the changing needs of companies aiming to implement work style reform and streamline costs, as well as the expansion of shared services, users are increasingly demanding not only conveniently located but also functional and secure served offices.
ORIX continuously provides spaces that lead to new business opportunities and value creation for our tenant companies.
