• Successful acquisition of new buildings in the 23 special wards of former Tokyo City
• Asia-Pacific region remains the focus of further direct investments

Munich, March 17, 2020 --( ASIA TODAY )-- The Munich-based family office AM alpha, which specializes in joint real estate investments with private and institutional investors, announces last September’s acquisition of a portfolio of new residential buildings in Tokyo consisting of 25 individual properties.

The 25 buildings, which will be constructed by one of Japan’s most prestigious project developers, are all within walking distance of the nearest train stop. At the time of the acquisition, four properties were already completed while the remaining buildings will be handed over in the coming two quarters.

AM alpha has been active in Tokyo for more than 10 years. Following the sale of two centrally located Tokyo office buildings in 2016, this off-market transaction represents AM alpha’s first foray into the Japanese residential market. “Demand for residential space, which is boosted by consistently positive fundamental data, and the resulting cash flow stability perfectly complement our existing value-add exposure in the region. This transaction is ample proof that our strategy, which focuses on local presence, is the right approach to real estate investments in Asia. We intend to use our existing structure to acquire further properties in Japan. On top of this, we will continue to look for further real estate with value-add potential in our other Asia-Pacific target markets,” explains Martin Lemke, Managing Director of AM alpha. Aside from the generation of stable income, AM alpha is also concentrating on further value enhancement of the residential properties. Tokyo is not only a global mega city, it is also the epicenter of this monocentric country.

The acquisition brings the number of regional transactions in AM alpha’s Asia-Pacific investment program up to three, with the other two consisting of the 179 North Quay office tower and the mixed-use TC Beirne Building in Brisbane. In addition to its investments in the Asia-Pacific region, AM alpha also focuses on value-based investments in Europe.
