Hines acquires five more multi-family properties in Japan
The agreement was made by Hines Asia Property Partners (HAPP), the company’s flagship combined Asia Pacific core-plus fund, and gets the overall amount of multi-family rentals properties in its portfolio to 16. This is HAPP’s 2nd investment in multi-family assets in Asia Pacific, supporting its transaction of 11 multi-family properties in Japan in 2022. The 11 properties comprised over 400 units or 150,694 sq ft across Tokyo, Nagoya and Fukuoka.
The multi-family rental field in Japan is a resilient, non-discretionary field in the Asia region and contributes as a stabiliser in a blended core-plus technique, claims Chiang Ling Ng, main financial investment officer, Asia, at Hines. “It is prepared for to be defensive in an inflationary phase, furthermore with positive leveraged yields, these new purchases must remain to add to our expanding footprint in the location, allowing us to provide a top quality profile to our financiers.”

HAPP finds to scale up by US$ 1 billion ($ 1.33 billion) of asset market value through the method in 3 to 5 years. The obtained properties are handled beneath the company’s Cavana brand by targeting city occupants in primary Japanese cities. Cavana focuses on sustainability initiatives and plans to apply lessee engagement systems to urge them to conserve water, reprocess products and reduce their carbon impact.
