Nuveen Real Estate, Kenedix and Bouwinvest strengthen Tokyo Multifamily Partnership with further portfolio acquisition
The portfolio now totals 35 properties and 1,940 units with a GAV of c. US$810 million.
Located in a highly sought-after neighbourhood in central Tokyo, the assets are well positioned to benefit from strong public transportation links to the Tokyo CBD targeting middle- to upper-middle income households. The most significant property within the portfolio is located in Shinjuku and comprises 18-storeys and 100 units.
The partnership has closed c. US$320 million to date from three institutional investors, including founding investor Bouwinvest, and TIAA.
Shu Watanabe, Head of Japan for Nuveen Real Estate, commented: “Through our partnership with Kenedix and Bouwinvest, we have been able to make a series of strategic transactions across the growing multifamily market in Tokyo. We remain confident in the sector as we believe it offers continued resilience due to strong secular fundamentals and growth potential.
“This latest acquisition, which was sourced combining ours and Kenedix’s local ‘on the ground’ expertise, benefits from an excellent location and high-quality finish, which we believe will ensure successful leasing going forward.”

Following this acquisition, Nuveen Real Estate’s total AUM in Japan totals c. $1 billion.
