After NYC, Sony Now Sells Its Tokyo Office for $1.2 Billion



Sony has officially announced the sale of its Sony City Osaki office in Tokyo for 111.1 billion yen ($1.2 billion) as part of its ongoing restructuring. However, it will continue to remain there for the next five years.

The 25 storey building housing around 5,000 employees has been bought by the Nippon Building Fund and an undisclosed Japanese institutional investor.

“Sony is transforming its business portfolio and reorganizing its assets in an effort to strengthen its corporate structure. This sale was conducted as a part of this reorganization,” an announcement read.

Last month Sony sold-off its NYC office for $1.1 billion. Also, recently they have announced details about their latest Playstation 4 in a strange way without actually having a device on display.
