Plans are moving forward for an 8KSF Zen Asian Kitchen + Cocktails at 15544 N. Pima Road in north Scottsdale following approval earlier this month by the city’s Development Review Board.
The site was formerly occupied by the Los Olivos Norte restaurant. The building will be fully renovated, including all elevations, and a new patio will be added.
Located near Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Loop 101, the restaurant will feature painted stucco, concrete, brick, painted steel window frames and wood cladding. The materials and colors are intended to complement the desert and landscaping and provide shade, texture and depth.
Screen walls and shade features, as well as roof overhangs and water features will minimize sound from the nearby freeway.
A shaded and screened patio on the west side of the restaurant will create an inviting approach to the building and add to the overall presence of the restaurant within the Sonora Village Shopping Center. Nearby businesses include O.H.S.O. Brewery, Wildflower Bread Company, Staples, Hi-Health and Golfsmith.
