J-CODE has developed extensive technologies and experience in each phase of urban development, from conception to project implementation and management, focusing on the long-term perspective.

Phases of urban development
  • Formulation of master plans, including land use and infrastructure planning, based on the future vision set while considering the economic environment, natural conditions and other issues related to the region.
  • Proposing long-term plans that offer high-added value, and are environmentally-friendly.
  • Proposals for efficient step-by-step development programs considering the intentions of governments, landowners, and private companies involved in the region.
  • Proposals based on extensive experience with public transit-focused and large-scale phased-in land development.
Real estate
  • Development of high-quality housing, offices, commercial facilities and hotels to match the needs of local communities utilizing Japanese planning techniques and technologies.
  • Proposals considerate of the surrounding environment, coexistence with nature, and specific urban design perspectives.
  • Introduction of energy-efficient and smart technologies backed by proven experiencem which are long lasting, environment friendly and disaster resilient, yet maintain a focus on efficient life-cycle costs efficient life-cycle costs.
  • Rigorous management of construction periods and costs.
  • Maintain and grow asset value through daily management, regular inspections and repair, as well as improvement and renewal of the buildings, based on structured management and operational plans.
  • Provision of comfortable living conditions through fine-tuned management systems with a focus on hospitality.
  • Area management methodology with a view to improving the entire region. Collaboration between government, project implementers, and residents has proven to be an effective approach in Japan.
  • Proposal of town planning to create safe, secure, and livable cities, considering diverse needs.


Urban populations continue to grow worldwide.

It is crucial to respond accurately to demands for urban development in each country.
The experience of Japan, which has addressed issues caused by rapid urbanization impacting cities, may be useful in cities all around the world.
