Before the 2020 Olympics, Lead Real Estate in Tokyo, Japan (Eiji Nagahara, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) will develop condominiums and hotels in Tokyo’s popular areas such as Ginza, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ebisu, Shinagawa, and Meguro by using funds raised through issuing security tokens.
For Lead Real Estate’s STO (Security Token Offering) fund establishment, it will be in accordance with the regulations of the US SEC regulation D and S, with documents prepared by Greenberg Traurig, LLP (Miami, FL: CEO Brian L. Duffy). The issuance of the digital securities will be done through the security token platform Securitize (CA, CEO: Carlos Domingo).
The fluctuating real estate market in Japan (yields in urban areas were 3-10%) and the negative interest rate, a Japanese political measure, maximized the appeal of Japanese real estate with the 2020 Olympics games coming around the corner.
According to the published price from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport in 2019, the average national price of commercial land rose for the fourth consecutive year and residential land rose for the second consecutive year. Ginza, Tokyo was priced at ＄350,000 per square meter surpassing the 1987 bubble period.
