Frasers towering in Tokyo
AUSTRALIAN developer Frasers Property Group has stepped up its expansion plans, announcing it has enlisted Japanese architect Kengo Kuma for the development of a landmark Tokyo hotel.
The Capri by Fraser, Ginza/Tokyo, pictured, will be the first Capri property introduced by Frasers Hospitality in Japan and will be aimed at millennial travellers.
Billed as a “design-led hotel residence”, it will have 190 rooms and a series of communal spaces.
“Breaking the traditional lobby concept, spaces for play and social interaction glide into each other, taking guests intuitively from check-in to the pool, bar and to Spin & Play, the brand’s themed laundrette offer,” the developer says.
While no date has been given for its opening, Frasers also plans a Fraser Suites property to debut in Akasaka in 2020 and opened Fraser Residence Nankai in Osaka in 2010.
