Fortunato Plaza, at 9100 E. Tanque Verde Road, has more than 7,000 square feet of retail space.

A 30-year-old plaza on the city’s east side has been bought by private investors for $1.1 million.

Fortunato Plaza, at 9100 E. Tanque Verde Road, has more than 7,000 square feet of retail space, anchored by Fortunato’s Italian Deli and Catering that has been in operation since 1982.

The buyer, a private investor, was procured by Alan Laulainen, Chris Lind, Jamie Medress and Mark Ruble, with Marcus & Millichap’s Phoenix office.

“After the buyer was referred to our team to assist him in finding the perfect investment ... we identified Fortunato Plaza,” Laulainen said. “The property was a high-quality asset with long-term tenancy that offered great return for the investor.”

Fortunato Plaza includes six suites on about one acre of land.
