The total sales revenue is about 13.12 million USD


3. the reason for investing in commercial stores:

1, The plaza has  a oversized parking space, the salable area on 1F to 2F is only 17,200 square feet, while the parking space is a two-storey basements with a construction area of 38,000 square feet, which is more than twice the commercial operating area. In Los Angeles, a commercial store is worthless if it doesn't have enough parking. vice versa

2, The average annual growth rate of the commercial property value in VALLEY BLVD is more than 10 %. We used 7.25 million U.S. dollars to buy three acres land of the hotel project three years ago,  and now the price has gone up to 12.8 million USD per acre.

3. The commercial storefront leasing will be managed and commissioned by the property management company. In order to maintain the positioning, the rental price of the commercial Square will be increased by 3 % -5 % annually. Therefore, each investor and property owner needs to entrust the property management company with unified management and leasing. Each month the property management company is required to charge only 0.50 US dollars per month per square foot.

4, The area around the project is rapidly developing, a 24-hour Wal-Mart supermarket next to the new municipal government office and EL MONTE DMV near the project are being built. There is also a large shopping life square that has been built at the intersection of SANTA ANITAVE and VALLEY, which is not far east of the project.

5, Old buildings around the project will be acquired generally in the future,  and new commercial areas will be replanted and developed.

In the future, the hotel will be the center, and we will invest in the new business area in the east of VALLEY BLVD

Investment in commercial real estate can appreciate quickly.
