I surveyed an interesting 5-story commercial building in the west of Ikebukuro which is a popular and growing commercial area of Tokyo.
Price: approximately 400,000,000 yen
Type: a building for investment
Location: 3, Nishiikebukuro, Toshima-ku, Tokyo (5-min walk to Ikebukuto station)
Land: 144.49 sq. meters
Floor area: 629.18 sq. meters
Structure: RC / 5 stories + 1 story underground
Built in: 1995
Coverage/FAR: 80% / 600%
Current annual income: 22,596,060 yen
You should rent space in this building to a game palor and/or a restaurant as they have already been successful in this area. In fact, there are so many international and Japanese restaurants in the neighborhood.
Just like Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Akihabara, Ikebukuro is becoming more popular among international people, in particular, Asians, than ever before. As a result, a number of Asian restaurants is rapidly growing in Ikebukuro. You will find international restaurants at any corner of Ikebukuro.
