A Tulsa landmark has new owners.

Crystal City shopping center was auctioned Monday. The shopping center is located on Southwest Boulevard and 33rd West Avenue, along Route 66.

Crystal City was originally the site of a 1920s amusement park and The Zingo roller coaster. However, over the years, it was boarded up, left rusted, and became an empty shell of what it once was.

The main building sold for $435,000 less than half what owner had originally hoped to get.  The multi-tenant building currently houses Family Dollar, Auto Zone, Carl's Coney Island and H&R Block. The same bidder also purchased the third parcel, which contains two single-tenant buildings, for $40,000.

City Councilor Jeannie Cue says the buyer owners several other properties that are well maintained.

A second bidder, a local buyer, purchased the second parcel of land for $89,000.
