    The fulfilling time and experience value brought by pleasant green space supports greater QOL (Quality of Life).

    In the South District, which will serve as a base for international interactions following the development of the new station, we aim to provide not only restaurants and shops that visitors from Japan and abroad can enjoy, but also next-generation experience value by offering a place for people living and working in the neighborhood to interact.
    The urban spa consists of a hot spring zone including natural hot springs, a gym, and a pool overlooking the urban park. It aims to serve as a comprehensive wellness hub for health, beauty, exercise, and relaxation.
    In the North District, home to the abundant nature of the north park, where you can feel the four seasons and witness the beauty of the symbolic avenue of ginkgo trees, we seek to create a commercial space that promotes knowledge exchange and citizen participation by connecting the core functions of the Knowledge Capital of Grand Front Osaka with the Umekita 2nd Project area.

    South District, West Building, Basement to 3rd floor: approximately 12,500 square meters
    South District, East Building, Floors 3 & 4 "Urban Spa": approximately 6,000 square meters
    North District, Floors 1 & 2: approximately 3,000 square meters

Urban park

MIDORI (greenery) acts as a core connecting the surrounding area with all kinds of people

  • Urban park
    Urban park

    MIDORI LIFE is created by diverse spaces that serve as the stage for your own individual activities

    A diverse variety of activities will take place in the urban park. The south area is a lively space where many people will gather around Reflection Square (with lawn square and water views), while the north area will act as a relaxing space where you can enjoy lush nature, including the Umekita-no-Mori area. Moreover, unique spaces will be created, such as Hirameki Road (aerial deck), which connects the north and south parks and Step Plaza built on ground level to integrate the north and south, designed to make the road and the park a continuous space. In the park, cafes and restaurants will be developed for users to enjoy the park even more, as well as facilities with functions that contribute to the creation of innovation. The park management and area management organization MMO (name to be confirmed) will be central in carrying out high-quality management and operations, providing a variety of programs and events.
