TOKYO (July 31, 2023) — LaSalle Investment Management (“LaSalle”), in partnership with Tokyu Land Corporation and NIPPO Company, announces today the completion of Logiport Nagoya. With a total floor area of 354,744m2 spread across four floors, Logiport Nagoya is the largest multi-tenant logistics facility in the Tokai region.
Located approximately 4.8km from Nagoya Station, one of Japan’s busiest train stations, and 2.2km from Nagoya Expressway Route 5 Manba Route, Logiport Nagoya enjoys excellent access to both the rail and expressway networks. In addition, it is a short 8-minute walk from Hatta Station on the Nagoya Municipal Subway Higashiyama Line, JR Kansai Main Line and Kintetsu Nagoya Line, making it highly convenient for regional commuters.
In terms of features, Logiport Nagoya is equipped with two rampways to access each floor. The facility has a floor load of 1.5t/m2, an effective height of at least 5.5m and a column span of at least 10m, enabling it to respond flexibly to different tenant needs. A disaster prevention center that operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year maintains the security of the building while a vibration control structure that is resistant to shaking during earthquakes and a 72-hour emergency power generator in case of power outages support business continuity for tenants.
The development and construction of Logiport Nagoya took into consideration environmental sustainability, featuring energy-saving LED lighting, an irrigation system that reuses rainwater and a plan to utilise the facility’s roof for solar power generation, among others. As a result of these efforts, Logiport Nagoya has received the highest rank of S (excellent) from the Comprehensive Evaluation System for Built Environment Efficiency (CASBEE) and the highest five-star rating from the Building Energy Efficiency Labeling System (BELS).
Built with a concept of “Logiport Town”, Logiport Nagoya seeks to make a positive impact on the community to which it belongs. An integrated plaza with landscaping, seating and a playground has been developed for the immediate benefit of the public. Meanwhile, Logiport Nagoya plans to collaborate with the city of Nagoya and the local community on disaster prevention and disaster response. In a nod to the site’s history when railway tracks used to enable direct cargo delivery to and from the nearby Hatta Station, architectural elements that recall railway siding have been incorporated into the design of sidewalks around the facility, which have also been widened.
Logiport Nagoya is 66% leased (approximately 192,000m2) at the time of its completion.
Mari Nagai, Head of Logistics at LaSalle Japan, said, “One of Logiport Nagoya’s strongest attributes is its excellent location close to Nagoya Station. This proximity is comparable to the distance from Tokyo Station to Roppongi or from Empire State Building to One World Trade Center. Combined with its scale and superior features, Logiport Nagoya is well positioned as an urban distribution center.”
Kunihiko Okumura, CEO of LaSalle Japan, said, “Logiport Nagoya is the largest logistics facility we have ever developed. Given the tenant demand for modern logistics solutions that are efficient and flexible, we expect the facility to be a game changer for the Nagoya logistics market.”
