Grosvenor Asia Pacific has unveiled its latest residential project, The Westminster Roppongi, an award-winning luxury apartment building located adjacent to Roppongi Hills in the heart of Tokyo.
The building was completed in joint venture partnership with Nan Fung Resources Limited. The project is the first in a new portfolio of properties to fall under The Westminster brand identity, to be a collection of residences offering outstanding services and design in some of Asia’s most prominent cities.
The Westminster Roppongi comprises 99 luxury units ranging in size from 933.34 to 2,997.96 sq ft (86.71 to 278.52 sq m). The property features 24-hour concierge, a fitness suite, and underground parking. Its 14 storeys are located adjacent to the world-famous Roppongi Hills development, offering a mixture of high-end retail, entertainment and dining experiences. This is balanced with the tranquillity of nearby Azabu, a district well-known for its luxury housing. As one of the few apartment buildings in the area with units available for strata-title purchase, it offers a rare opportunity to own property in one of Tokyo’s most thriving districts.
“Together with architects Paul Davis and Partners, Grosvenor has undertaken significant retrofitting works at The Westminster Roppongi, upgrading both common areas and apartment units with the highest quality materials and finishes,” says Nicholas Loup, chief executive of Grosvenor Asia Pacific. “The apartment building offers an exemplary standard of living in terms of location, amenities, design quality and lifestyle on offer, and this will be consistent across The Westminster brand of properties. Looking forward, we expect The Westminster to become synonymous with exceptional design and contemporary urban living, and this all starts here, with The Westminster Roppongi.”
Earlier this year, the property was awarded the “Five-Star Best Residential Renovation/ Redevelopment Japan” award at the Asia Pacific Property Awards, part of the long established International Property Awards.
Rebecca Shum, executive director of CBRE Investment Properties International, says: “Supported by the government policy and the depreciation of the Yen in Japan, investment momentum in the property market is strong. Foreign investment particularly on high quality properties in prime locations is much sought after as investors focus on core investments. The Westminster Roppongi is definitely an obvious choice.”
