About Us

Who we are, what we do and why we love it.

Niseko Alpine Developments (NISADE) was founded in 2005 by people with a striking vision. Inspired by the powdery wealth of Hirafu’s ski fields, they launched several alpine properties offering the ultimate in alpine comfort. These exceptional developments paved the way for NISADE to become the largest fully integrated property specialist in Niseko, Hokkaido.

From design and construction through to property management and real estate, NISADE prides itself on setting new standards of Niseko excellence. We deliver a complete continuum of essential management components that powers a project from concept to completion. From single dwellings to apartment buildings and on to full-scale resort planning, we are involved in over SUSD400m worth of projects in Niseko.

We at NISADE believe in constantly challenging ourselves to push the boundaries and persistently striving to be the innovator. We are always thinking ahead to concoct better designs for sustainable buildings, improve quality, and create unique lifestyle concepts. We deliver to the individual rather than the market, and we stay connected, right down to the finest detail.

The multi-award-winning NISADE team is made up of uniquely talented individuals, selected on a basis extending far beyond their professional qualifications. Our drive is built on kaizen; a solid and unwavering aspiration towards continual improvement and this remains at the heart of what we do. Our success in the international awards arena is a testimony to our commitment to excellence.

With over fifteen years in property development Jonathan has an extensive knowledge and skill base in Development Management. These skills were honed managing the money of high net worth individuals in property development across industrial, commercial and residential development.

Having developed circa USD$300m in residential property and projects, he is well versed in the processes and key competencies that ensure project success. Leaving Quantum, Jonathan’s vision was to focus on sustainable property investment in the alpine environments throughout the world.
