Shuwa Residence Series of Vintage Apartments

The Shuwa Residence Series of condominium apartments first appeared on the scene in the mid 1960s. They were developed by Shuwa Corporation, who went bankrupt in the early 2000’s. Numerous in number, they can be seen all over Tokyo and are easily recognizable by their white stucco and often blue tiled roof.

The Shuwa apartments have quite a following with “vintage mansion” enthusiasts with many websites dedicated to them.

When the apartments were first developed in the 1960s, purchasing a condominium apartment was not an affordable choice for many Japanese so more than half of the residents were fairly wealthy. Because they were designed for wealthy residents, the management and maintenance of the buildings was also to a high grade.

The apartments were constructed with thick walls and pillars. They tried to create an Andalucian-style atmosphere with patios, iron balcony railings, wide entrance approaches and trade-mark blue tiles.

Why are they comparatively expensive?

The biggest reason for their higher price is their valuable locations. At the time of construction, the developer wanted to target wealthy financial types, cultured types and the foreign population, so they had to build in appealing locations. Land values have continued to remain strong in many of these areas, so the secondhand-prices have also remained high. Other reasons for the higher costs include the high construction standards and the high level of maintenance and management.
