Description Credits/Info Recognition

Sun City Tower Kobe is a 508,000 gsf, 33-story luxury residential tower providing accommodations and amenities for the senior population.

470 independent living units are located in the tower and range in size from 425 to 1,060 gsf. The distinguishing glassy "Lantern" at the top of the southwest corner of the tower is a signature element housing the project's premium units. 80 skilled nursing units are located in the lower 3-story base. Significant design consideration was given to create an environment for active Japanese seniors that would be culturally sensitive, appealing and residential in character and provide residents with amenities and services equivalent to a five-star hotel.

The primary goal was to create a rich diversity and identity of amenities at ground level that take fullest advantage of light, sun and gardens. Public amenities include various lounges, library, atelier, mahjong, karaoke, billiards and 500-seat auditorium for events, dancing or wellness classes. Full fitness facilities including pool, spa, exercise and massage rooms compliment social amenities. The Skyview Restaurant provides community dining with spectacular views from the 33rd floor and ensure a commanding sense of comfort and luxury. A richly landscaped central courtyard offers garden views from the project's ground floor public spaces and connects with an interior loop promenade.
