SimCity BuildIt has had a new Commercial Update! Now you can upgrade your Commercial Buildings to produce items faster and grow your City quicker! I show you how it all works in this episode of my SimCity BuildIt Let's Play series.
v1.5.5 Patch Notes
27 July 2015
"Craft and build your city faster then ever in our latest update! Once you reach level 10, invest Simoleons to permanently upgrade your Commercial Buildings and speed up production time. Quickly craft items like nails, tools, donuts and more. As you progress, you can upgrade your buildings up to 3 times each for maximum production speed and grow your city like never before!
We've also made some behind-the-scenes fixes to overall performance. Thanks for playing and happy building."
Here is the list of Costs and Levels, please add any new information in the comments and I'll try to keep it updated!

UPDATE : I have now included 'best guesses' in the list above, based on the formula Cost = (Level - 1) x 10,000 which seems to be the pattern used by the game's developers. I've marked them with a ? so please also let me know if you find any discrepancies in them!
UPDATE : Even more great information and figures are available here; http://www.simcityplanningguide.com/2015/08/simcity-buildit-commercial-build-times.html
Unfortunately the sound issues I was having a while ago with the in-game background music crackling is back with this update. It is also conflicting with my voice recording, so I hope it doesn't spoil the video content for you. I'll probably just end up playing with the sound off in future until they fix or optimise the new content again as this has been an ongoing problem with the game on my iOS device.
