The Suita Sustainable Smart Town is a town building project,
engaging in advanced town planning to help resolve issues faced by today’s society,
which is organized by 16 companies ＆ Suita City.
Suita Sustainable Smart Town (Suita SST) is the third Sustainable Smart Town project to utilize a former factory site based on the CRE (Corporate Real Estate) strategy developed by Panasonic Corporation. Following on Fujisawa SST in the city of Fujisawa and Tsunashima SST in Yokohama, both in eastern Japan’s Kanagawa Prefecture, Suita SST is being developed in western Japan as a next-generation smart town in partnership with Suita City, Osaka Prefecture.
Panasonic’s Sustainable Smart Towns
Town development based on individual lifestyles
The Sustainable Smart Town concept departs from the typical overemphasis on infrastructure by focusing on “people,” proposing sustainable smart living through optimal space design and services tailored to individual lifestyles.
Addressing social and regional issues through co-creative innovation and proposing new ideas in Town development
The Sustainable Smart Town concept aims to address various social and regional issues through town development by co-creation among partner companies, residents, local government, and academia. Developing and testing next-generation energy, security, mobility, wellness, and community solutions in this way increases regional value and gives rise to new ideas for town development.
A town that evolves by being responsive to each resident and makes possible healthy and active tomorrows.
The most important factor in developing the towns of tomorrow is to respond to the lifestyles of the people who will live in those towns, providing the best possible living conditions by understanding the residents’ constantly changing needs. Particularly in Japan, where a large percentage of the population is approaching an advanced age, ensuring a healthy and active life for all requires the provision of services that continuously adapt to residents’ lifestyles as they change with age. Based on the concept of a “Suitable Town for Fine Tomorrows,” Suita SST is undertaking the challenge of town development that evolves together with the changing needs of residents.
in 5 Service Areas
Suita SST is creating touchpoints in people's lives and a platformfor co-creation with partners. Those touchpoints enable us to know individual lifestyles, and by continuing to provide co-creative services with partners while giving consideration to individuals, we aim to realize more personalized “updateable lifestyles”
Suita Suita SST is designed to be a town where multiple generations - young people, families, and senior citizens – live together and interact. In addition to 362 residential units, the smart town will also include a wellness complex, a commercial complex, and a community park.
