Creating “Osaka Midori Life”
— Midori (Green) and Innovation in Harmony —
The Umekita Project challenges the conventional paradigms of urban development to contribute to building a society where we accept the diversity of all nationalities, ages, genders and special needs, understand each other’s wisdom, and strive for an improvement in the quality of life for each person. To meet this goal, we will create an urban space brimming with vitality in harmony with Midori (green), with facilities as a starting point for innovation, and with places and initiatives where citizens and businesses can challenge themselves to engage in new ventures, thus delivering the energetic, creative life model “Osaka Midori Life” from the Umekita district to the Kansai region, and then to the rest of Japan and the world.
“GRAND GREEN OSAKA”
- Name -
The Umekita Project is a new urban development project in front of Osaka Station. Grand Front Osaka was established in the previous development, and has become a hub of interchange as the gateway to Osaka and the Kansai region. In 2024, the Umekita 2nd Project will see the establishment of “Grand Green Osaka,” which will warmly enfold people in lush Midori (green).
Midori, or greenery, reflects the park's central theme of blending nature with the city. It embodies the hope that people from diverse backgrounds will come together and embrace their individuality to unleash a new world of possibilities as they spend more and more time in this space.

The two yellow G’s represent the sun, which is indispensable to Midori. We hope that you will feel the spirit of the city and the sun that shines down on us, and that it will inspire you to shine and fulfill your potential.
