The Ken-O Expressway is currently undergoing construction to convert the section from Kuki Shiraoka JCT to Ibaraki Prefecture into four lanes. Together with the scheduled connection of the Sakai Iwai Bypass on National Route 354 and the Furukawa Sakai Bypass to the new National Route 4, the accessibility and traffic flow to Sakai will be further enhanced, which is expected to lead to an increase in the concentration of logistics s facilities in the area.

The berths will allow large vehicles, including 45-foot container vehicles, to have direct access to each floor. Tenant blocks will be a maximum of 24,000 sqm per floor, and the entire facility can be reconfigured to accommodate up to 16 tenants. The building has a parking capacity of approximately 450 vehicles and is equipped with the electrical capacity to accommodate the installation of air-conditioning throughout the warehouse to meet the various needs of its tenants. The building will also have a cafeteria and shops for the convenience of both workers and drivers.

Focus on Sustainability
