One block from the Port of Kobe on a tree-lined boulevard that includes the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art and several national museums, a stunning life plan “retirement” community, SunCity Tower Kobe, joins world-class cultural architecture in a new district, HAT Kobe. Conceived after the Kobe Earthquake of 1995, HAT (Happy Active Town) Kobe replaced heavy industry with a vibrant community of residential, cultural and institutional development, a symbol of recovery for the Kansai region.
A new addition to HAT Kobe, SunCity Tower Kobe, adds a highly desired and missing component in the residential mix , senior living. Encouraged by other high-rise residential developments rising in Kobe after the devastating earthquake, SunCity decided to create a vertical community to take advantage of breathtaking views of Mt. Rokko to the north and Kobe Harbor to the south. With this charge, a collaborative design vision, implemented through site planning, building massing and landscape design, created an iconic flagship life plan community celebrating the elements of mountain, city, and sea that make Kobe vibrant and unique.
