Real Estate Development

We are involved in the business of developing residential housing, logistics facilities, commercial facilities, office buildings and other real estate.
ITOCHU Property Development, Ltd., and other Group companies perform roles in the area of residential housing. We develop and provide services by exploiting a value chain that extends from development and construction through to sales, management and operational services, leasing, brokering, and distribution.
In fields other than residential housing, we pursue synergies by collaborating organically with Division Companies and the Headquarters business organization while utilizing our advantage as a general trading company that receives countless pieces of information every day.
Specifically, with regard to logistics facilities, we provide services only a general trading company could provide, ranging from site allocation through to development and operation of facilities, and involvement in equipment materials, according to tenant needs.

Together with the general real estate management services provided by ITOCHU Urban Community Ltd., we operate two J-REITs, Advance Residence Investment Corporation, Japan’s largest residential REIT, and Advance Logistics Investment Corporation.
We also operate Advance Private Investment Corporation, an unlisted open-ended private real estate investment trust.
