INHABITAT: How many homes will be in the SST and what will the layout be like?
Mr. Ishio: It will be about 1,000 households in size. The town layout is based on a leaf-like pattern, and it features three layers of construction (as shown in the renderings we sent to you).
INHABITAT: The town will be built on the site of an old Panasonic factory? How did you decide on this location?
Mr. Ishio: Yes, Fujisawa SST will be built in the cleared site of a former Panasonic factory. As we mentioned in answer 2, Panasonic decided to build the sustainable smart town there after consulting with Fujisawa City officials.
