The latest addition to popular Upper Hirafu is Kizuna. Kizuna’s construction started in spring 2011, and the building is now close to completion with handover in January 2012. Australian property developer VKH Pty Ltd, through its Japanese subsidiary Kizuna GK has engaged reknowned Sapporo architect MIES together with builders Ishizuka Kensetsu to do the construction.
“In Japanese, Kizuna means the bonds or ties that link us together. The whole aim of this project is to create luxury lifestyle apartments where people can enjoy Niseko together with family and friends,” says developer Brendan Vote. Kizuna consists of three 1-bedroom (from 47 to 56 sqm) and six 2-bedroom (68 to 93 sqm) apartments, with the 6th and 7th floors boasting an expansive 3-bedroom 132 sqm penthouse. The design cleverly maximizes the use of space to capture and enhance stunning views of Mt Yotei and the surrounding Niseko area. “Kizuna’s floor to ceiling picture windows are a highlight. Natural light provides a refreshing living environment yearround. Summer will also be fantastic.” comments Vote.
Building on VKH’s experience and portfolio of developments in New Zealand, Tasmania, and Vanuatu, Kizuna’s ten exclusive apartments offer a year-round rental investment and lifestyle opportunity to those looking for a sophisticated acquisition option in prime position.
