388,570 sqm state-of-the-art distribution centre in Japan’s Greater Osaka to set new standards for modern logistics properties

 

HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 8 July 2020 – ESR Cayman Limited (“ESR” or the “Group”; SEHK Stock Code: 1821), the largest APAC focused logistics real estate platform, today announced the completion of ESR Amagasaki Distribution Centre (“ESR Amagasaki DC”) in Greater Osaka which, with a GFA of 388,570 sqm (117,542 tsubo), is the largest domestic consumption logistics warehousing project in Japan as well as in APAC[1].

Strategically located in the Greater Osaka Metropolitan area, the six-storey, state-of-the-art facility epitomises the highest quality specifications as well as the human-centric and sustainable designs for which ESR properties are renowned.

Stuart Gibson, Co-founder and Co-CEO of ESR, said, “The development of ESR Amagasaki DC marks a milestone for ESR. It further cements our position not only as APAC’s leading logistics real estate platform, but as a company that consistently leads the industry with the highest standards of innovation. The state-of-the-art operational design and visionary elements that the ESR team have crafted for this facility are ground-breaking.”

“This property provides an important new platform to service the logistics industry, especially given the current social and economic environments. The pandemic has accelerated the structural shift toward online consumption. We believe this trend will continue for the foreseeable future and drive even greater demand for high quality logistics space among e-commerce and 3PL companies. We will continue to invest in advanced, modern facilities like ESR Amagasaki DC to support our global and domestic tenants, allowing them greater capacity and agility of delivery for the rapidly evolving needs of their customers,” continued Mr. Gibson.

In line with the cutting-edge design, architecture and top international standards that the Group’s best-in-class properties emulate, ESR Amagasaki DC has been awarded a CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency) Class A certification and an ABINC (Association for Business Innovation in harmony with Nature and Community) certification. In addition to a wide array of sustainable elements such as energy-saving features, onsite solar energy generation and ample green space, the facility boasts a suite of human-centric features underpinning ESR’s design philosophy, including a child day-care centre (BARNKLÜBB), a private lounge (KLÜBB Lounge), a retail shop, communal amenities and open space for onsite workers.  

ESR continues to accelerate its efforts to provide scalable and efficient space and solutions for its customers, underscored by a focus on strategic investments in key cities of Japan. The total AUM of its Japan business grew 48% to US$7.7 billion as of 31 December 2019. The Group manages approximately 3 million sqm of GFA in the country and holds the largest development pipeline in Greater Tokyo and Greater Osaka.

In the wake of
the Covid-19 pandemic, e-commerce
and related businesses are displaying a strong appetite for expansion amid
rising online consumption of food and daily necessities. As a result, the
vacancy rate for large multi-tenant properties has been in decline, 3.7% in
Greater Osaka and 0.5% in Greater Tokyo, according to CBRE Research[2]. Approximately 70% of the newly
completed facility, representing over 270,000 sqm of space, has already been pre-leased
to some of ESR’s largest global tenants, further reinforcing the trend in
demand for high quality, well-located and innovative logistics warehouses.

catalysts including a number of large-scale infrastructure projects. Built at
the centre of the country’s key logistics network, ESR Amagasaki DC is
well-placed to service the Japanese domestic market, with exceptional access to
Osaka CBD, large national ports and international airports.
