Sumitomo Corporation (president and CEO: Kuniharu Nakamura, head office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo) and Sumisho Urban Kaihatsu Co., Ltd. (president and CEO: Masaaki Kokubo, head office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo) have been engaged in large-scale renovation efforts to transform MOMO, the predominant commercial facility in Kyoto’s Fushimi Ward recently acquired by Sumitomo Corporation, into a facility even more appealing to locals as the “MOMO Terrace” large-scale regional shopping center and reopen it in early summer 2015.
In a preliminary Phase I reopening of this renovated facility, 12 shops will be opened for business in mid-February 2015.
Decisions have also been made on MOMO Terrace’s seven core stores (including two involved in the early reopening) and the logo mark reflecting the facility’s concept, and further information on these are provided herein.
MOMO Terrace is a revitalization project that makes maximum use of the know-how cultivated by Sumitomo Corporation and Sumisho Urban Kaihatsu (hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Sumitomo Corporation Group”) in the course of developing and operating station-front commercial facilities and large-scale regional shopping centers such as “Terrace Mall Shonan.” Retaining the name of MOMO that has won the hearts of people living and working in the community, the Sumitomo Corporation Group has added a new “terrace concept” (*see reference) to develop the MOMO Terrace into the area’s indisputably number-one commercial facility and invigorate the entire community.
With the facility still in operation, the Group will carry out renovation in two phases concluding in February 2015 and early summer 2015. Information about the shops that will be opened and detailed information on facility plans will be announced as it becomes available in future.
The use in the logo design of the image of a peach tree, also the symbol of the Momoyama district, is expressive of a commitment to set down roots in the community and seek growth as a commercial facility popular with locals. A subdued color has been used to reflect the refinement for which Kyoto is renowned.
