Crystal City May Shine Again After Auction Sale

Posted: Updated:

Crystal City was a magic place for families along Southwest Boulevard. Today, the property which once held the original Zingo roller coaster, sold at auction. The property had declined over the years and now has many vacant spaces.

Now that there is a new owner at Crystal City, there is a long list of things to do, from community leaders as well as tenants. First thing on the list, fill up empty locations with new business.

The new business would bring a vibrancy that Crystal city has not seen in years. An auctioneer sold the property right in the parking lot. The main building sold for $435,000 less than half what owner had originally hoped for.

The center does have a few faithful tenants, including Good Guys Gun and Pawn. The owner says the stores need work.  The hope, is that the new owner means business, in more ways than one.

"All they need to do is bring something in here, a Subway, a little Mexican restaurant, something to get people coming here for something other than auto parts," explained Rich Leible, Good Guys Gun and Pawn.

City Councilor Jeannie Cue says there are plans to build a grand Route 66 entrance, near the center and make something once an eyesore, a warm welcome to visitors.
