Hankyu Hanshin Real Estate Co., Ltd.
The management of the area management organization “Machi-nehama Koshien” has been fully shifted to residents and activists.

The area management organization of the Hamakoshien housing complex, General Incorporated Association Machinone Hamakoshien (hereinafter referred to as “Machinone Hamakoshien”), held the “regular general meeting of employees (hereinafter referred to as “general meeting”)” on Sunday, June 25, 2023. As a result, we have transitioned from a private developer to a new local community organization run mainly by local residents and activists.
[Image 1:×370.jpg] Machinone Hamakoshien was established in 2016 through a public-private partnership between the Urban Renaissance Agency (UR Urban Renaissance Agency) and a private developer as part of the renovation project for the Hamakoshien housing complex in Nishinomiya City, Hyogo Prefecture. It is a general incorporated association. So far, Haseko Corporation, Keihan Electric Railway Real Estate Co., Ltd., Art Planning Co., Ltd., Fuji Housing Co., Ltd., Sekisui House Co., Ltd., Hankyu Hanshin Real Estate Co., Ltd., Sogo Real Estate Co., Ltd., Kintetsu We have promoted area management in residential areas by selecting directors from eight real estate companies.
While issues such as isolation due to the weakening of neighborhood ties and a lack of people to support regional organizations are becoming apparent throughout the country, in the Hamakoshien housing complex area, Machinonehama Koshien has been a local base where anyone can easily drop in for six years. We have managed to visualize our activities by actively disseminating information. As a result, the number of young people who had little interest in conventional regional activities has increased, and we have also promoted local employment to sustainably support the activities.
At the general meeting, the directors and auditors elected from local residents and staff were approved, and the system was shifted to management by local residents and activists, with UR Urban Renaissance and HITOTOWA INC. continuing to support as regular members. In the future, we will promote efforts to form a more sustainable and inclusive community, and along with “MACHINONE: Bit”, which aims to develop new leaders, we will work closely with local residents’ awareness of issues. I’m going to go.
