Residential construction in Japan, particularly the development of condominiums, has never been as robust as it is today. In Tokyo alone, some 35,357 units were sold last year, an increase of almost 16 per cent over the same period in 2012, according to the Land Institute of Japan. Ascot Corp, one of Japan's premier real estate developers, aims to leverage its expertise in constructing high-value properties to direct investor interest to many promising development areas in the country.

"We are confident that we can contribute to the community development in Tokyo as the city attracts attention globally," says CEO Kagaya Shinji.

The condominiums developed by Ascot Corp reflect the perfect balance of traditional and modern aesthetics. In its developments in the Nihombashi and Asakusa districts of Tokyo, Ascot Corp incorporates designs and images from the Edo period, an era characterised by elegance and refinement, in the exteriors and entrances of the condominiums.

"Ascot Corp is capable of provisioning condominiums that are original and with high livability levels," Shinji says.

Capitalising on the natural magnificence of the Japanese landscape, Ascot Corp designs its properties to showcase the surroundings. In its MEW property,

5-metre ceilings and wide windows are installed in the bayside units to beautifully frame Tokyo Bay and the Rainbow Bridge. Ascot Corp goes the extra mile in ensuring that residents live in homes with a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.

Similar to the MEW property, AscotPark Tokyo Riverside showcases the picturesque vista of a river. There are no other buildings fronting the condominium, giving residents an unhampered view of nature. Ascot Corp tapped spatial designer Ryu Kosaka to lend his architectural flair in designing the exteriors and entrance of the condominium.

While its focus is Japanese developments, Ascot Corp plans on expanding to other parts of Asia. "We hope to provide original living spaces that enrich people's lives in Japan and other Asian countries," Shinji says.
