High-rise warehouse sets new standards in amenities
ESR Group has opened a Japan logistics centre with features designed to boost staff wellbeing.
The ESR Higashi Ogishima Distribution Centre is a nine-storey, 349,000 sq m logistics facility in Tokyo, located approximately 10km from Haneda Airport.
The project incorporates a number of amenities for workers which are unusual for logistics facilities, such as a free day care centre, outdoor green space and a number of recreational spaces, such as a bowling alley.
Warehousing tenants in Japan increasingly look for such amenities in order to attract and retain staff and to boost wellness and productivity.
The facility has also achieved CASBEE S rank and BELS five stars accreditation. ESR plans to install 2.5MW of solar PV panels to the building.
