Real Estate

Since our founding, we have passed down urban development as part of our DNA, and we will continue to develop attractive cities.

Focusing on building attractive towns and cities by railway lines, the Real Estate Business has shared its growth with the Urban Transportation Business.

We develop, lease, and administer commercial facilities and office buildings that create vibrant communities. We also provide quality residences that match each person’s lifestyle.

Further, we are engaged in real estate fund management, which combines the fields of real estate and finance. As the inheritors of urban development DNA, we are turning future designs into reality.

Real Estate Development

We have been steadily promoting large-scale development that brings life to the city.

The Company celebrated the grand opening of its newly refurbished Umeda Hankyu Building / Hankyu Umeda Flagship Store in 2012 and began operations at GRAND FRONT OSAKA in 2013. To bring even more life to the city, we have begun work on the Umeda 1-1 Project. This project focuses on the refurbishment of the Dai Hanshin and Shin Hankyu buildings, with work expected to be fully completed in 2022. Moreover, in the Tokyo metropolitan area we are participating in the Yotsuya Station Front Area Type 1 Urban Redevelopment Project. We are also exploring new overseas markets through means such as constructing and owning logistics warehouses in the ASEAN region.

Real Estate Leasing

The Group owns a number of properties (commercial facilities and office buildings), mainly in Osaka-Umeda—the centre of the Kansai economy—and the areas along the railway lines and contributes to the creation of lively cities through property leasing and management.

We have many commercial facilities and office buildings, which are primarily in areas served by Hankyu and Hanshin railway lines and include Umeda Hankyu Building, GRAND FRONT OSAKA, Hankyu Sanban Gai Shopping Centre, HEP FIVE, HERBIS OSAKA/HERBIS ENT, Shin-Osaka Hankyu Building, and Hankyu Nishinomiya Gardens. We own a total of over 1.7 million square meters of leasing property (as of 31st March 2017).

We are taking steps to heighten competiveness and utilization rates. For example, in 2015 the Group began the Hankyu Hanshin Odekake Card service, which can be used in the Group’s main shopping centres. Also, we have launched a website exclusively for those working in the main office buildings that we manage.

Real Estate Sales

In Japan, we offer “dreams come true” homes for customers, mainly under the Geo condominium brand and the Hapia housing brand. Overseas, we are entering markets in the ASEAN region.

Geo brand condominiums are designed with quality from the customer’s point of view and are built in neighbourhoods that people will grow only more attached to over the years. Hapia brand housing is designed with a view to creating comfortable homes while taking into account changing lifestyles. By aggressively developing these businesses in Japan—not only in Kyoto, Osaka, and Kobe but also in Tokyo—we are able to offer “dreams come true” homes for customers.

In addition, overseas we are participating in condominium and housing development projects in Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines with a view to laying stable earnings foundations.
