Your chance for a Shop in Luna Oaks Galleria OR Busy Ben’s Vehicle Lot


We’re pleased to announce your chance at a free 6-month lease in the shops in Luna Oaks Galleria and Busy Ben’s Vehicle Lot! Please be aware that we have changed the historic method of distribution of parcels, read more below.


The Luna Oaks Galleria and Busy Ben’s Vehicle Lot (in Oak Grove) offer some of Second Life’s most desirable retail space, and both of these premier locations are ready to offer six-month leases to a limited number of new merchants, with an updated program design.

The Galleria offers a varied range of shop sizes, from 16 square meter Kiosks all the way up to breathtaking 1,300 square meter anchor stores – all boasting primitive allocations five-times above the norm. Busy Ben serves vehicle dealers with leases on individual plots of 32 or 96 square meters, featuring vehicle-friendly prim allocations, with the larger lots holding up to three vehicles for sale.

The Busy Ben and Luna lottery are open to both premium and basic Residents. We will be setting the land in both spaces to special merchant groups that lottery winners will be invited to join (Please be sure to have an available group slot).

The New Process:

Linden Lab will hold two lotteries. One lottery for Luna Oaks Galleria and one lottery for Busy Ben’s Vehicle Lot. Each lottery will award leases to either Busy Ben or Luna Gallery’s parcels respectively.

Residents will be able to enter the lottery as follows.

All winners will be selected through a blind-lottery held by Linden Lab on or about March 31, 2008. Winners will be announced here in the Official Linden Blog & the VTeam Blog.

Parcel winners will be invited into the appropriate land use group and assigned a space. Winners will not own the land and as such will not be able to sell or transfer land, nor will they be able to rename it or release it. Prim limits per plot will have to be checked periodically to ensure a plot owner does not exceed their allocation. Auto-return will prevent junk from collecting in the area. At the end of the 6-month lease, all existing members will be ejected from the group, and the new lease holders will be added.
