TUCSON, Arizona — HA Arizona Properties of Tucson (Riad Altoubal, manager) has purchased the former Molina’s Restaurant at 1138 N Belvedere Ave. in Tucson for $429,500 ($79 PSF) to be owner occupy for expansion and relocation of Zayna Mediterranean Restaurant. Zayna, a popular local spot, specializes in Lebanese and Syrian dishes.
Currently located in a smaller leased space at 4122 E. Speedway, the buyer was attracted to the new location for the addition space and parking that is offers. With four large dining rooms and enough seating for 200 people, the new restaurant is significantly larger than Zayna’s current location inside what used to be Feast.
Molina’s restaurant which closed in May had occupied the premises for 64 years.
