MANILA - Startup real estate company Revolution Precrafted has tapped Hollywood celebrity Kate Upton as it makes a pitch to international investors.

Upton, who gained fame after gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Edition, accompanied Revolution Precrafted CEO Robbie Antonio in Tokyo to woo Japanese investors. 

The real estate firm is seeking investor support for its project in Southern Luzon which it called "world’s first livable art park."

The company, which builds prefabricated houses done by international designers, secured a $1.1-billion joint venture agreement with Indonesia’s Bakrie Global Ventura in April on the sidelines of the ASEAN Summit. 

Antonio helped seal a venture a few years ago with Hollywood socialite Paris Hilton for his family's Century Properties group. 

He was featured on ANC's The Boss, where he related his intention of turning Revolution Precrafted into the Philippines' first "unicorn" or billion dollar startup.
