Participation in Project for Use of Public Land in Front of South Exit of Higashi-Kawaguchi Station

In September 2020, Takara Leben and SaitamaKenko Construction Inc. entered into a basic agreement with the local government to participate in a project for use of public land in front of the south exit of Higashi-Kawaguchi Station. The project plan provides for integrated development of an administrative center, police box, and apartment building under a basic policy of establishing an administrative base with low financial burdens, enhancing the safety and convenience of local residents, and developing permanent urban residences.

This will be the first PPP project* in which the Takara Leben Group participates.

* A PPP project is a public-private partnership project. It is a new form of public-private collaboration whereby private sector parties provide public services.

Participation in THREE Excellent Building Development Project in the Shinmachi 1-Chome District of Aomori City

Takara Leben Tohoku is participating in the THREE Excellent Building Development Project in the Shinmachi 1-Chome district of Aomori City (at the site of the former Nakasan Department Store Aomori main store) being undertaken by Shinmachi Machizukuri K.K. and MiK Co., Ltd. By acquiring floors reserved for residences in the THREE residence (a 14-story structure with a total of 86 condominium units on the fifth and higher floors), which integrates four core functions: apparel, healthcare, food, and residences, and conducting condominium development, Takara Leben Tohoku is contributing to the revitalization of city centers in Aomori City.

The lower floors of the building will feature a clinic mall, supermarket, and food court and will be connected by a passageway to an annex with a drive-in parking garage, thereby facilitating living without the stresses of snow, even though it is a heavy snowfall region. This project will serve as a new model for department store revitalization in regional cities.

The company aims to further develop together with the community as a company that is managed with a focus on the community, as can be seen in its active hiring of Yokohama residents and its emphasis on doing business with companies in Yokohama, and that contributes to the local community through environmental conservation and volunteer efforts carried out through its main business and other activities.

In March 2021, We participated in and cooperated with EARTH HOUR*, a light-down campaign being implemented on a global scale, in response to a call from the city of Yokohama.

* EARTH HOUR: An international environmental campaign in which people around the world take action to turn off their lights on the same day and at the same time to show their support for global environmental conservation. The WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) conducts this event every year on a Saturday in late March.

Winner of Kids Design Award for “Yajirushi” Emergency Shelter
Guidance Signs

As a developer that sells new built-for-sale detached houses and takes part in community development, Nikko Takara Corporation realized the need for emergency shelter guidance signs that were clear and easy to understand for everyone, including small children, in residential areas with few landmarks. This is why it manufactured and installed “Yajirushi” evacuation shelter guidance signs. In order to contribute to the disaster preparedness education of children throughout local areas, these signs were installed in street-facing locations such as the garbage stations of Nikko Takara Corporation’s subdivisions. When the signs were installed, members of the surrounding were informed of the objectives and significance of these signs, gaining their widespread approval. In the future, if requested, we will also supply these signs to other companies’ subdivisions, government agencies, and other organizations, contributing to the overall disaster preparedness of local communities. These “Yajirushi” signs contain only essential information to make them easier to understand for children, and use highly creative expressive approaches. In recognition of this, they were awarded the Encouragement Prize in a Kids Design Award 2019.
