On March 23, 2017, Sumitomo Corporation and Sumisho Building Management opened FUSION_N, a facility offering a shared office and co-working space, in Kandanishiki-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.
FUSION_N is the culmination of the Company’s desire to create a cozy workspace in Kandanishiki-cho that offers an environment similar to, but not quite the same as, a conventional office, cafe or home. At the opening reception, Sumitomo Corporation’s Junichi Hiramatsu, leader of the New Development Team, Building & Overseas Real Estate Business Dept., expressed his appreciation, saying, "We are grateful for the cooperation we received from numerous people involved in the launch of FUSION_N." Tetsuo Miura, director of "51%," an architectural design office involved in the project, expressed his hope that the facility will become an attractive place loved by many.
Urban community development is rapidly progressing in Kandanishiki-cho, where Sumitomo Corporation is implementing a redevelopment project along with several other companies. The "nishiki" in "Kandanishiki," means to weave a fabric using threads of many colors. Appropriately enough, the area, itself a blend of old and new, is home to a range of unique and colorful individuals who happily coexist without losing any of their distinctive qualities. The entire community, in fact, is bursting with energy as it advances toward the next stage in its development. For example, also located in the area is a farm situated on the rooftop of Terrace Square, where a wine production project commenced in 2017 in collaboration with SAYS FARM of Himi-shi, Toyama. By offering a shared office and co-working space in Kandanishiki-cho, Sumitomo Corporation aims to work in a coordinated way with the area to help create an urban community that captivates more and more people.
