PARCO CO., LTD.
PARCO is proud to announce its plans to open a new shopping complex, Kawasaki ZERO GATE*,and has recently entered into a fixed-term building lease option agreement to secure a site for the complex.
Kawasaki (population: 1.5 million) is one of Japan’s major cities. The area has high potential,as demonstrated by the construction of a new road link to Tokyo International Airport (Haneda)
and an ongoing concentration of state-of-the-art industrial/research facilities along the TokyoBay waterfront. These, together with its recent designation as a National Strategic Economic
Zone, support expectations for the further functional development of the city.
Under the agreement, PARCO will lease an entire building to be constructed near JR Kawasaki
Station. PARCO expects this complex – tentatively named Kawasaki ZERO GATE – to enter
commercial operation in early autumn 2019 and is planning store openings accordingly.
Kawasaki ZERO GATE is to be situated in a highly visible triangular plot across from JR Kawasaki Station, bordered by the main road in front of the station, Shinkawa Street, and Via CLUBCITTA.
To take full architectural advantage of site characteristics, the building will feature anapproximately 100-meter long glass curtainwall. This will provide an attractive façade for tenants to express their own commercial appeals and to impart a sense of excitement and vitality to the surroundings.
PARCO will announce details such as tenant composition as they are determined.
This initiative is being advanced under Tactic 2 – produce commercial real estate – outlined in our Medium-term Business Plan (FY2017-21). It calls for us to establish new commercial facilities in urban areas that don’t yet have a PARCO store.
