The beginning of the game opens with Kazuma Kiryu collecting a debt owed by Taichi Kurihara, beating him senseless and taking his money. He is later killed, and the lot becomes the scene of a murder investigation.
Throughout the events of Yakuza 0, both the Tojo's Dojima Family and Omi Alliance are competing for the deed, held by Makoto Makimura, unbeknownst to her after inheriting it from her late grandfather.
Tachibana is later buried in the lot after his death in the building adjacent to it.
The Empty Lot, along with the rest of the Kamuro Shopping Area, is demolished, and the Millennium Tower is built upon the land.
