Business Arcade FAQs 

Why is it called an Arcade and not a Business Center?

Before video games became synonymous with the term "arcade", it was a general term for multiple buildings forming a complex of shops. Historically this meant shopping malls used to be called arcades. 

Only a few hours from Lima, The Cleveland Arcade hosts a variety of retailers and dining options. 

How many spaces are available in the Metro Center Business Arcade?
There are 6 individual areas available. They range in size from 1,000 sq. ft. to 2,000 sq. ft.  

What will the style look like?
The Business Arcade will be a charming and welcoming center of modern businesses with a 1920-1940s motif. Two spaces come with the bank vaults. These are preserved pieces of the Metro Center's past as the headquarters of one of Lima’s greatest financial institutions, the Metropolitan Bank.

Will there be restrooms and parking?
The Business Arcade will have both. 

Will I be able to help design my future store?
The Business Arcade is white-box ready and able to be customized to future tenants' needs.
