Overview

The Tandy Center in downtown Fort Worth, Texas, consists of a set of two 20-story office towers, the headquarters of Radio Shack (Tandy Corporation); an indoor shopping mall, and an indoor ice skating rink. The site was the former location of Leonard's Department Store, which opened on Feb. 12, 1963 a private subway line leading from the store out to parking lots on the banks of the Trinity River. By the time the mall was built, Leonard's had been bought by Dillard's (a mostly Southern department store chain). Dillard's became a main tenant in the mall, which opened around 1978, but the mall was not successful and Dillard's moved out in 1995. In 1996 the mall portion of the complex was turned into an outlet store center. The subway line operated until 2002, serving the single underground station at the Tandy Center office complex and three stations in the parking lots, and was apparently the only privately owned subway line in the United States.
