Tulsa, Okla. - Now that the Crystal City Shopping Center has new owners, people in West Tulsa are hoping it means a brighter future for the area.
The 50-year-old shopping center is largely vacant.
It was bought at auction Wednesday by two different buyers, one who bought about 75-percent of the property and another who bought the other 25-percent.
Tulsa City Councilor Jeannie Cue, who had worked for the past year or so to find a new developer for the property, says the majority owner does have plans to bring in new tenants.
A grocery store is at the top her wish list.
"If he can bring in an anchor store like a grocery store, I think he wouldn't have a problem bringing in some other things to the area," Cue said.
She said the developer has talked about a Mexican restaurant, as well as at least one other restaurant.
