TOKYO, Japan - May 29, 2015 - ORIX Corporation (hereinafter, "ORIX"), a leading integrated financial services group, today announced that it has completed the construction of "Belle Face Azabu-Juban Est" (14 floors above ground, 39 units) on May 29 and has began accepting applications from prospective tenants.
Belle Face Azabu-Juban Est is two minutes' walk from Azabu-Juban Station on the Tokyo Metro Namboku Line and Toei Oedo Line. Attractions within 1.5 km include commercial facilities like Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Midtown and public spaces like Arisugawa Park and Shiba Park. Other conveniences like the Azabu-Juban shopping district are also within walking distance. As such, the new building offers an exceptionally rich living environment. Units offer night views of Tokyo. On the east side, for example, from the fourth floor up, residents will have a view of Tokyo Tower.
The building exterior was designed on a "Japanese + modern" concept. A vertical lattice of wood-pattern louvers brings out a Japanese feel. The facade design features sharply defined, modern materials such as tile, glass, and metal for a stylish appearance.
Amenities were chosen to afford excellent security and lifestyle convenience. The building offers an auto-locking entrance, 24-hour waste disposal, parcel delivery boxes, security cameras, intercoms with TV monitors, toilets with a water spray feature for washing, bathroom ventilators/dryers, and free Wi-Fi as standard features, all utilities that made the top 10 list for the "2014 Ranking of Utilities Most Popular among Tenants."*2
ORIX has been developing urban rental apartments, particularly in Tokyo, since 1996, and has so far offered9,235 units in 183 buildings in total, including Belle Face Azabu-Juban Est. The new building is our eighth in the Azabu area, totaling 289 units now on offer in our Belle Face series.
The Belle Face series has won overwhelming customer praise. These apartments are constructed to prevent disaster and be eco-friendly, with product planning designed to appeal to women. Each unit is tailored to offer something extra by coordinating with the characteristics of the area in which the property is located. All Belle Face series properties owned by ORIX presently have high occupancy rates.
ORIX will continue to offer Belle Face series homes that are the result of researching tenant needs and product planning that coordinates with local characteristics. In so doing, our goal is to offer rental homes that are highly satisfying for our tenants.
