what to include in a lab report

Dear Investors:

 

fascism essay is now the tallest tower in Japan.  The to-be-634-meter tower  is still under construction and is going to complete in 2012.  But it has passed the old someone to write an essay onlinewhich is 333 meters high yesterday while reaching to 338 meters.

 

 

A new commercial zone will propbably be created in the area surrounded by http://blog.realestate-minato.com/writing-expect/, Kinshicho, Kameido, and Oshiage where Tokyo Sky Tree will be.  In fact, many people and companies are seriously looking for real estate in the region for a view of the tower. 

 

 

Please let us know, if you are interested in the area.  We will introduce you interesting investment properties in the region.

 

 

Best regards,

Bummer! An interesting office building in Koto-ku is no longer available…

Dear Investors:

 

 

A 400,000,000-yen office building in Koto-ku which we blogged about only two days ago is no longer available for sale because the seller has decided to negotiate over purchase terms with some applicant.  In other words, this applicant is successful in monopolizing the power to negotiate with the seller about terms.

 

 

We strongly recommend that you show the seller your intent to purchase real estate with application as early as possible.  We don’t want you to miss out with good opportunites.  Although application should be dealt with seriousness, it is not binding and submitting it does not mean that you will have to committed to buying real estate. 

 

 

We wish you the best of luck with real estate search and purchase.

 

 

Best regards,

Breaking news – Japan is becoming more affordable for international investors

Dear Investors,

 

 

The Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastracture, Transport, and Tourism has just announced that land prices across the nation have fallen for two consecutive years by 4.2% for residential land and by 6.1% for commercial land. 

 

 

The ministry surveys over 27,000 locations to evaluate land values in Japan as at January 1st and announces the results in March every year.   This year, 27,804 benchmark locations across Japan have been surveyed; and it has turned out that almost all of the locations have decreased in value, except for 7 locations. 

 

 

It looks that Japan is becoming more affordable for international buyers.

 

 

Best regards,

News – Landmark of Shinjuku has been purchased by an electronics retail chain

Dear Investors,

 

 

Koseinenkin Kaikan (= a convention hall built by Japan’s welfare pension program for corporate employees)  has been on an auction since December 1st, 2009; and Yodobashi Kamera (= a mega electrics retail shop with a nation-wide network of shops) has won the bid at 12,000,000,000 yen on February 12th, 2010.

 

 

Shinjuku Koseinenkin Kaikan has been in business since April 15th, 1961, and has been functioning as a hotel, a restaurant, and a multi-purpose convention hall which has staged music concerts of domestic and world-famous musicians. 

 

 

Yodobashi Kamera is planning to make the facility be a museum of cameras.

 

 

The purchase may create new foot traffic because Yodobashi Kamera is well known and the real estate is only 10-min walk away from Shinjuku station.  

 

 

Economic activities in eastern regions of Shinjuku may grow further and accelerate faster due not only to the on-going land development in Shinjuku 7 chome but also to the Yodobashi Kamera’s purchase of a prime property.

 

 

Best regards,

 

 

Minato Asset Management

 

 

The Japan’s organization for welfare pension is going to use the hall till March 31st, 2010.

You should be able to rent the building’s 2-8 floor @39,500 yen/sq.meter or so.   The space on 1st floor (134.39 sq. meters) is currently being rented at about 124,o00 yen/sq.meter.

 

 

A large amount of traffic will soon be created within the area surrounded by Asakusa, Kinshicho, and Kameido because Tokyo Sky Tree will be completed in two years.  Kameido is conveniently connected to central areas of Tokyo with JR Sobu Line.   For example, it takes only 8 minutes from Kameido to Akihabara.

 

 

Please let us know, if you are interested in this building.

 

 

Best regards,
