Group Trying To Bring New Life To Historic Tulsa Area

Posted: Updated:

Bringing new life to a piece of Tulsa's history.

Crystal City, which once held the original Zingo roller coaster, is located in west Tulsa along Southwest Boulevard.

The property fell apart over the past decade with mostly vacant buildings remaining.

In February, a group of investors from Utah and Florida purchased the property and tell KTUL.com they have big plans in store.

They hope to attract a grocery store, restaurants, and other small service stores.

"We're hoping that it becomes what it originally was in the development of the 1950's," says Danny Overton of NAI Petrous Commercial Real Estate. "It has been a very successful shopping center since its first construction. It's had a bit of a black eye for the past 10 years, but we're really looking to change that."

We're told the project should take one to three years.

They'll have 18 store fronts once its all restored.
