The team’s extensive investment track record in seniors housing includes acquisition by sale-and-leaseback, build-to-suit development, and corporate restructuring of senior living operators.

Japan Multifamily

Japan’s continued urbanization, decreasing household sizes,  and high propensity to rent in its largest cities  underpin consistently high occupancies and low rent volatility, making multifamily residential one of Japan’s most resilient asset classes.


The Managing Partners of Capbridge Investors are some of the most experienced professionals in Japan’s multifamily residential market, having acquired or developed over 8,000 units in Japan’s major cities.
