+ Orix to install 3 logistics properties with solar power - (27/09/2010)
Japan's Orix Real Estate Corporation has decided to
install solar power generation systems at the logistics properties currently under
3 Target logistics facilities are “Kawagoe
Sangyo Danchi Logistics Center (in Kawagoe city, Saitama)”, “Ichikawa
Chidori-cho Logistics Center (in Ichikawa city, Chiba)” and “Komaki
Logistics Center (in Komaki city, Aichi)”, which
are large-scale logistics facilities with total floor area of from about 6,000
tsubo (19,834.71m2) to 22,000 tsubo (72,727.27m2) respectively.
Orix is aiming for eco-friendly facilities by
installing solar panels on the roof of these large-scale logistics facilities
and by covering a part of electricity used in the properties.
2,160 solar panels in total will be installed in these 3 properties and
electricity of 176,160 kwh in total is expected to be generated. Generated
power will be used for lights and air conditioning in the facilities and
contribute to reduced CO2 emission.
Overview of solar power generation systems
1. Kawagoe Sangyo Danchi
Number of solar panels to be installed: 1,120 (module output 85W/panel)

+ LaSalle to install Logi Port Kashiwa with 1.5MW solar power - (27/09/2010)
Investment Management Inc. announced that it plans to install 1.5MW solar power
generation systems to a large-scale logistics facility they manage known as Logiport Kashiwa (3-1, Shin-Toyofuta, Kashiwa-shi, Chiba). This solar plan will be one of the largest for logistics facilities
the plan, the installation work will start this month and the first 500KW
system will start operation by April 2011 and the second 1.0MW system will be
in operation by April 2013. LaSalle owns a lot of logistics and commercial
facilities in Japan
whose roof area is wide. It therefore plans to install solar panels to other
properties in the future.
The scale of 1.5MW is the largest
among the cases of solar power generation systems using the roof of buildings.
The 22,400m2 large roof of the logistics property is to be used to the utmost . Taking advantage of the output which is about 430 times stronger than standard
solar panel sets used on the roof of general houses, it will greatly contribute to
reduce CO2 emissions. The effect is estimated to be about 530 tons of CO2, which
is equivalent to about 800,000 m2, 17 times as large as Tokyo Dome, in forest
area which can absorb CO2.
One of the huge benefits of installation of this
system is that advantage of CO2 reduction will be presented to tenants who
occupy the facility. So far, most cases of installation of solar power
generation systems have been for electricity consumption in common use space of
buildings or for private use in a company. However, this system of “green”electricity
generated by solar power system is to be allocated for all the tenants and therefore tenants benefit from CO2 reduction. The analysis by LaSalle estimates that “green”electricity
could ultimately cover about one-third of the electricity used by tenants.

+ Tokyo Outer Ring road, to resume acquiring land between Nerima & Setagaya - (02/09/2010)
The Tokyo Outer Ring Road
project that had been effectively suspended last year in a regime change has once
again started to move with land acquisition in Tokyo. However, with a project cost ranging from
2.2 trillion yen the final outcome of the project is far from certain.
The outer ring road has a total
length of about 85 km and the new 16km section between Nerima and Setagaya in
western Tokyo is expected to reduce travel times to the Tomei Expressway. The
new section of road is also estimated to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) by around 300,000
tons a year.

+ French Bank to increase asian real estate finance - (01/09/2010)
Generale plans to more than double the amount it lends on property in Asia according to Bloomberg news. The French bank will
increase its property allocation to the Asia region
to 20% by 2012. Half of the increase will be in Japan where price declines have
made property an attractive investment. Asian economic growth outside Japan continued
to be strong which underpins a lot of real-estate activities. The bank also
said there was a concern in the region that if the market picked up there may
not be enough finance available to meet demand.
