Luxury property developer SC Global Developments has unveiled its first luxury residence in Japan called Setsu Niseko.

Located in the popular ski resort town of Niseko in Hokkaido, the condo hotel will feature 150 luxury apartments that range from studio units to ultra-luxury penthouses.

The project sits on 2.54 acres (111,000 sq ft) of prime freehold land, which is flanked to the east by Mount Yotei and to the west by Mount Annupuri.

“Set against Niseko’s breathtaking natural landscape, it was important to us that the resort’s identity be rooted in the deep respect for and understanding of the natural environment,” noted SC Global’s chairman and CEO Simon Cheong.

“From this emerged our vision to create architecture and luxurious living spaces that encapsulate the purity and elegant simplicity of the Japanese spirit.”

SC Global is expected to launch Setsu Niseko in the second half of 2018.
