Feeling the pulse of Tokyo in prestigious residential areas in Japan

Sunwood launches two luxury home projects with easy access to major business districts

Hong Kong, 28 September 2016 – JLL has been appointed by Sunwood Corporation Ltd., Japan's new generation of urban real estate property developers, as the sole agent in Hong Kong for two projects in the heart of Tokyo. A total of 86 apartments will provide convenient access to major business districts. Easy to rent out to singles or couples, these units offer solid investment value.

Sunwood Akasaka Tangocho – Steeped in history

Sunwood Akasaka Tangocho is an eight-storey residential project offering 21 one- or two-bedroom flats ranging in size from 38.82  sq m (418 sq ft) to 65.49 sq m (705 sq ft). It is located on the hilltop of Akasaka in Minato-ku, an attractive location both for local people and international visitors and employees.

Akasaka, Aoyama and Azabu are together known as "three As", some of the most prestigious residential areas in Japan. Historically, the mansion of one of the most powerful feudal lords in the Edo era used to be on the land where Sunwood Akasaka Tangocho is situated. The area attracted a lot of nobility in the Meiji era. Today the area is home to many residential buildings, and the convenience and accessibility to the area has markedly improved.

The American Embassy and Canadian Embassy are situated in Akasaka, thus providing great rental demand in the area. The area is home to many reputable Japanese hotels — such as Okura, New Otani, Akasaka Prince and Capitol Hotel Tokyu — as well as international hotels — such as Intercontinental Tokyo and Ritz Carlton.

Within a seven-minute walk from the project are six different Tokyo Metro subway lines from three different stations. This enables residents to reach three major business districts in Tokyo within ten minutes: eight minutes to the Marunouchi Business District (Tokyo station); nine minutes to the Shinjuku Business District (Shinjuku station), and nine minutes to the Otemachi Financial District (Otemachi station).

There is a bus terminal at Akasaka Excel Hotel Tokyu (within a seven-minute walk) that offers limousine bus services to both Haneda and Narita airport.

Prices start from ¥67,280,000.

Sunwood Higashi Nihombashi Flats – fast and easy connections

Sunwood Higashi-Nihombashi Flats is a 14-storey residential project which offers 65 one-bedroom flats ranging in size from 37.51 sq m (404 sq ft) to 40.18 sq m (432 sq ft) with floor heating in living and dining room.

The project is located in the Nihombashi area, the northern part of Chuo-ku. It is an area which Tokyo Metropolitan Government has designated as the Central Core Area (CCA) for the efficient growth of Tokyo. The Nihombashi area is classified as "mixed urban zone", where commercial and residential buildings co-exist.

The project is just a short walk away from to the Sumida River, one of the major rivers in Tokyo. The Sumida riverside is being revitalized and the plan is to invite cafés and restaurants to the quay along the Sumida River.

The Nihombashi area lies close to the central business districts and commercial zones, and attracts people who want to live closer to their workplaces, such as singles and couples without children. A one-bedroom apartment with access to a variety of train/subway lines to the central business districts and Haneda/Narita Airport matches the needs of people who choose to live in this area.

Sunwood Higashi-Nihombashi Flats is a mere three-minute walk away from three different lines from four different stations. In addition to direct access to Tokyo station (Marunouchi CBD) and Shinjuku staion (Shinjuku CBD), Higashi-nihombashi station offers direct access to both Haneda and Narita Airport. The project is also near the Ryogoku Kokugikan, the famous Sumo coliseum.

Prices start from ¥38,110,000.
