As part of its plans to develop an international campus city incorporating satellite campuses on the outskirts of Perth in Western Australia, Tokyu Corporation signed an understanding with Edith Cowan University at an event in Perth on 22nd November.

Under the plans, the railway operator will apply its expertise in successfully developing college towns along its Tokyu railway lines in the Tokyo area to the West Australian initiative, to form the core of an urban development that can support sustainable growth. The development will be in Yanchep, a coastal area 50 kilometers north of Perth where Tokyu has significant land holdings, and has already begun to develop residential properties.

Tokyu President, Hirofumi Nomoto, took part in the signing ceremony for the agreement to collaborate on more detailed study and planning of the ‘International Campus City’ development, which will include lecture theatres, halls, accommodation, libraries and other academic facilities.

Beginning with the first buildings in 2014, the plan aims to attract satellite campuses of institutions from around the world, to create a city with 10,000 international students by 2020.
