The Islamic Center of Boca Raton bought 19 acres west of Delray Beach on Lyons Road for $4.9 million, or almost $258,000 per acre. The center took a $3.3 million mortgage from the seller, A-1 Holdings of Boca Raton.
Bassam Alhalabi, president of the Islamic Center, told the Palm Beach Post the center plans to use the land for future expansion. The center runs a mosque and a school on a 6.6-acre property near Florida Atlantic University. [Palm Beach Post] – Mike Seemuth
