Half Century More Senior Living Communities

Multiple cities, Japan

Impressive senior living communities throughout Japan emphasize culture, wellness, and sustainability.

To introduce care environments for Japan’s aging population, Half Century More and Perkins Eastman collaborated on seven communities, including Sun City Takatsuki, Sun City Ginza East, and Sun City Park Yokohama. Each property leverages contemporary design trends, maximizes the surrounding environment, and honors Japanese culture. Sun City Takatsuki’s building plan utilizes the U.S.-based cluster design of small-scale neighborhoods and offers a variety of assisted, independent, and specialty care living options. Ample gardens and a traditional tea garden play a major role in wellness, adding to the amenities and common areas where residents commune and relax in the beautiful Osaka Prefecture. In the nation’s capital, Sun City Ginza East stands tall in Tokyo as one of Japan’s first urban high-rise life plan communities, including a two-story restaurant and bar on the building’s top floor. Just south of Tokyo, Sun City Park Yokohama Minami promotes connection with nature among its residents. The master plan design respects adjacent green preservation areas, while buildings offer stunning views of park lands and gardens. Pushing the boundaries of sustainability, the design also includes green roofs, high-efficiency lighting and climate controls, dual water system, durable exterior materials, and upgraded insulation systems.
