The 43-storey and 228-unit J Tower 2 Condominium is so far the grandest, standing as an eye-catching landmark in the heart of the capital and providing numerous households with high-end and luxurious lifestyles
When Tani Shunji, a Japanese real estate developer, arrived in Phnom Penh nine years ago, the capital of Cambodia was very different from what it is today. Despite years of rapid economic development, there were still a few skyscrapers while the residents’ livelihood remained moderate, without many sign of elitism or modern civilisation.
However, Shunji – always a man with a clear vision – realised Phnom Penh’s potential as the next Bangkok or even Singapore.
Just last week, Shunji, now the CEO of Tanichu Assetment Co., Ltd, and his team celebrated the completion of J Tower 2 Condominium in Phnom Penh’s Beung Keng Kang district.
The company has already been renowned for high quality and outstanding residential designs in the past projects, including J-city Condominium, J-village Condominium and J Tower Condominium.
However, the 43-storey and 228-unit J Tower 2 Condominium is so far the grandest of them all, standing as an eye-catching landmark in the heart of the capital and providing numerous households with high-end and luxurious lifestyles.
According to Shunji, the construction of the J Tower 2 Condominium began in December 2019 and completed in April 2022. The condo units, however, were already sold out in just five weeks after the project was announced for purchase.
“This is not a surprise since people have already known us for high quality as well great comfort and luxury products of your project,” Shunji said.
“In fact, superior quality has always been at the core of our business. What we are selling are not only lovely and luxurious home but also high level of trust of security.”
What came as a surprise is that majority of the buyers were Cambodians (45-50 percent) although it has been generally believed the local people prefer houses with lands, which hold not only financial but also cultural values.
“Years ago in Tokyo, Japan, people also prefer houses on land to apartment or condo in high building but as the city went forward socially and economically, the tendency changed, particularly because it got harder and harder to obtain land over there due to development,” Shuji explained.
“The affordable houses on lands today are located very far from Tokyo, which means the owners will have to spend a lot of time commuting between their workplaces and homes, causing many to choose to live in apartments in the city. The same trend is happening now in Cambodia.”
To build this landscape, nevertheless, was not without hiccups. As the country went through the Covid-19 pandemic, one of the worst public health crisis the Kingdom has ever faced, the construction was occasionally disrupted, particularly when a lockdown was issued in the capital and when some workers were infected. Yet, thanks to careful and competent management of Tanichu Assetment, the projects have been completed on time, and the owners are now moving in.
Based on the famous modern Japanese architectural concept, J Tower 2 Condominium has been built with priority on security and comfort.
The building was erected with highest level of engineering technology imported from Japan which is aimed at boosting protection against natural force, including earthquakes.
Furthermore, located only 5 minutes from AEON Mall, J Tower 2 Condominium provides its residents with convenience thanks to its proximity to crucial business and entertainment areas. The building itself also presented numerous facilities which make up a real modern lifestyle, from high-end café to relaxing sky bar.
The most outstanding part of the condominium is probably the built-in gym, which is equipped with the latest equipment, as well as an indoor swimming pool and a boxing ring.
Shunji added that his building management teams are also doing their best to provide the residents of J Tower 2 Condominium with the greatest security and residential services for them to have a complete modern livelihood without unnecessary concern.
“Our mission to take care of our valuable clients is endless, and we know that the best model of the business is making everyone happy,” Shunji added.
For Shunji, J Tower 2 Condominium is so far the biggest achievement of his company, he attributes it to his hardworking staff, all Cambodians, and the supportive clients. Nonetheless, he even has bigger plans for the future.
“We want to become the biggest when it comes to residential building in Cambodia,” he said. “Although we are not there yet, we are on our way.”
