We have been engaging in urban development through development on large unused land spaces that surround ironworks sites. This includes our urban development for environmental coexistence in the Yahata Higashida District of Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka Prefecture.

Regional Revitalization Business Yahata Higashida General Development Project

Utilizing 100 years of urban development expertise to createan advanced environmental city of the future

The Yahata Higashida District is where the industrial revolution of Japan originated in 1901, as a location for government-operated ironworks.
We are working to achieve sustainable urban development through collaboration between industry, government, academia, and citizens at this former Kyushu Works (Yawata area) factory owned by Nippon Steel Corporation.
The Yahata Higashida General Development Project aims to build sustainable communities, including a new cluster of next-generation industrial sites, co-existence with the environment, and the creation of low-carbon city.
Based on our development philosophy that looks toward the future, including the use of hydrogen energy and support for community development, in addition to land improvement and building construction, this project is expected to evolve and develop even further in the years ahead.

A complex development project on the approximately 36-hectare former site of company housing for Nippon Steel Setouchi Works (Hirohata area). The site is divided into Fair Village Ayumino, which has 450 lots, Livio Himeji Otsu Bloom Garden Nozomino, with 293 lots, and Park Front Otsu Hinatano, with 20 lots.

Rebuilding historical warehouses into office buildings

Motofunamachi, Nagasaki City, Nagasaki Prefecture

We have reconstructed an office building on the site of the historic warehouses facing Nagasaki Harbor, within easy reach of Nagasaki Railway Station and the Nagasaki Prefectural Government Offices. Envisaging that the project would attract companies from the metropolitan area, the interior spaces are pillarless for easy layout design. With features including an open space in front of the building facing the ocean, this project has become the kind of receptacle for companies establishing a presence in Nagasaki that the Prefecture and City aspire to, achieving a space that will contribute to the creation of about 1,000 new jobs.

Kamaishi/KaminakashimaChildren's Park Integrated Development

Contributing to the creation of a community in the Kaminakashima region

Kaminakashimacho, Kamaishi City, Iwate Prefecture

In an integrated development project, we relocated the three childcare facilities - Kaminakashima Childcare Center, which had the challenge of improving its childcare environment due to its aging facilities, Kaminakashima Children's House, and Sukusuku Parent-and-Child Classroom, which lost its own facilities in the giant tsunami after the Great East Japan Earthquake and has been operating temporarily in the former Ogawa Kindergarten ‒ together to the same site on land owned by Nippon Steel. As well as serving as a facility for children, this development is helping to build community in the Kaminakashima region, which also includes public housing built as part of the area's post-disaster reconstruction efforts.
