TOKYO, Japan - Jun 5, 2020 - ORIX Corporation (“ORIX”) announced that CROSS GATE KANAZAWA, a mixed-use facility under development at the West Exit of JR Kanazawa Station, will open fully on August 1, 2020.
CROSS GATE KANAZAWA is a mixed-use facility that comprises the Hyatt Centric Kanazawa and Hyatt House Kanazawa hotels, the condominium The Residence Kanazawa, and a commercial area home to a wide range of stores.

Situated on the lower floors, the commercial area boasts a retail space covering approximately 3,124 square meters and is based on the concept of “premium foods and restaurants that are from Kanazawa or new to Kanazawa.” CROSS GATE LOUNGE, which features an eat-in space, is located on the first floor, while a variety of events are scheduled to take place on the third-floor rooftop garden, Mirai-no-oka.
CROSS GATE KANAZAWA comprises two towers: a 14-story tower and a 15-story tower. The full-service lifestyle hotel Hyatt Centric Kanazawa occupies floors 1 to 14 of the 14-story tower, and offers seven suites among its 253 guestrooms.

2．Overview of Commercial Area
The commercial area is located on the first and second floors of the facility, and features a retail space covering approximately 3,124 square meters. The area is based on the concept of “premium foods and restaurants” and will be home to a total of 34 stores, including both local stores as well as stores and businesses new to Kanazawa. CROSS GATE LOUNGE, a communication lounge where visitors can eat the foods they have purchased, has been established on the first floor. Its vibrant artworks communicate the spirit of Kanazawa—Kutani ware, a traditional Kanazawa craft, decorates wall-mounted shelves, while the lighting is inspired by the ball-shaped handicrafts known as “Kaga temari”—and enables visitors to come into contact with the city’s cuisine, culture, and art.
The design of the communal space on the second floor has been inspired by the Higashi Chaya District, one of Kanazawa’s most popular tourist locations; the space’s latticed walls take after the traditional local craft, “Kumiko zaiku,” while its flooring resembles stone-paving. Visitors will be treated to a serene atmosphere that makes them feel as if they are walking through the Higashi Chaya District itself. The communal space is an area where locals can freely drop by, and where tourists can feel welcome.
