For Indochina Capital and Kajima, local know-how and global experience lay a sound foundation for Indochina Kajima to create innovative real estate developments in Vietnam, with aspirations for regional expansion. Since 2016, Indochina Kajima has focused on the rollout of two major platforms, Wink Hotel and Core5 Vietnam.
Wink Hotel is a Vietnamese hospitality brand that takes a bold, playful approach to affordable luxury. The brand caters to modern, aspirational travelers and reflects a unique combination of traditional Vietnamese style with modern forward-thinking originality.
Travelers will find space-smart, colorful chic rooms that are fine-tuned for maximum comfort. Each room contains a seductive Wink mattress, high-quality linens and pillows, power showers, a smart TV that connects wirelessly with mobile devices, and an artistic black-out blind featuring a drawing by a prominent artist from the vicinity surrounding the hotel.
The multifunctional lobby, Wink Space, features a 3D multipanel work portraying the neighborhood created by Nguyen The Son, a renowned Vietnamese artist, and the very best in local street food.
“Our vision is to develop a chain of 20 Wink Hotels not only in Vietnam, but also in prime locations in the region, such as Singapore, Cambodia and Laos, and more spilling into other parts of the world,” said Peter Ryder, CEO of Indochina Capital.
Indochina Kajima is also the owner of Core5 Vietnam, an industrial real estate development platform focused on world-class factories and warehouses. The brand name originates from Core5 Industrial Partners, a best-in-class industrial brand from the U.S. owned by Kajima. In Vietnam, Core5 Vietnam’s industrial property development portfolio covers 80 hectares of land, including seven prime projects in northern Vietnam and one in southern Vietnam.
Ryder concluded: “Core5 Vietnam’s projects are more than an industrial park, but instead a ‘factory village.’ The village will promote environmental sustainability, community health and people engagement, thus making it easier for tenants to attract and retain high-quality human resources. Indochina Kajima believes in the long-term fundamentals of the Vietnamese economy. We are excited to continue the rollout of innovative, design-driven and sustainable developments in the hospitality and industrial sectors.”
