About Us

Designing cities where people can shine

Urban Renaissance Agency (UR) is a semi-governmental organization originally established in 1955 as Japan Housing Corporation to address urban and housing agendas in Japan. Taking advantage of such position and our extensive experiences in projects, we have worked closely with governmental and private sectors, steadily implementing a wide variety of projects.
UR has led large-scale, quality urban development and housing projects at the forefront, and has also made significant contributions to institutional designs and technological growth. We continue to extend a major influence in the field of urban development in Japan.
And now, we are eager to support designing and realizing “a city where people can shine” in your country - which is our fundamental mission.
