Message from the President and CEO

In line with our mission of Communicating with People, Creating the City, we aim to continue to be the developer of choice for our customers.

Nippon Steel Kowa Real Estate is a general developer with a real estate leasing business that develops and leases office buildings, such as the Intercity series of large-scale urban development projects and the Bizcore series of medium-scale high-grade office buildings in prime areas in central Tokyo, as well as high-end rental condominiums for foreigners such as the Homat series. Our core businesses also include condominium sales such as the Livio series of condominiums, condominium renovation, and urban redevelopment.

Utilizing our close collaborative relationships with the Mizuho Financial Group and the Nippon Steel Group, we are able to meet the various real estate needs of our customers. Our unique strengths are our ability to propose real estate solutions that incorporate financial technology, and our experience and expertise in community revitalization gained through the development of Nippon Steel Group's massive former steel mill sites scattered throughout Japan.

In the third year of our third mid-term management plan, "Connect to the Future. 2021-2025," we will further evolve our two core businesses of office leasing and condominium sales, while expanding our logistics facilities business under the LOGIFRONT brand, which is in growing demand with the advance of e-commerce, as our third core business. We are also entering the hotel development and management business under the & Here brand, scheduled to launch in 2024. In addition, we are steadily expanding business areas including rental residences, shared offices, and incubation offices in central Tokyo, as well as our rental housing value-added business in the United States.

Our head office is located in the Akasaka/Toranomon area, the birthplace of our building business, and amidst intensifying competition among the world's major cities, we will continue to showcase the appeal of the "international city of Tokyo" from Akasaka.

In line with our mission of Communicating with People, Creating the City, we will work together as a group to build urban communities, addressing the changing times and the various needs of our customers and aiming to be the "developer of choice" in every era under our motto "Trust and Integrity". We will also strive to earn the trust of all our stakeholders by growing sustainably with society and further enhancing our corporate value.

We look forward to your continued support and patronage.

President and CEO

Masahiro Miwa
