Sumitomo Corporation and Hankyu Realty enjoy a solid partnership, having previously been involved in numerous joint projects in Japan, including “The Senri Residence” (completed in 2011), winner of the 2011 Good Design Award, “CLASSY SUITE GEO Higashi Azabu” (completed in 2013), a downtown compact apartment building, and “Geo Fukushima Noda The Marks” (to be completed in 2019), a large-scale condominium building with units currently being sold. The Project is the first overseas project to be jointly undertaken by Sumitomo Corporation and Hankyu Realty, and it is aimed at providing high-quality housing by fusing the two companies’ know-how cultivated inside and outside Japan with SC’s housing/condominium business experience in Indonesia.
Sumitomo Corporation hopes through the Project to help meet the rising need for housing in Indonesia as the economy grows and provide the infrastructure needed for people to live comfortable lives, as well as to contribute to the development of local communities.
