I like the OKC skyline overall but it really needs a new signature building. OKC is the state capital and the largest city in Oklahoma with over a million people in the metro, yet the skyline does not reflect that. I hope that all the Bricktown development can somehow stir up plans for new high rise condominiums and office buildings downtown, only time will tell...

While the skyline isn't that impressive it does have density and the Bricktown entertainment district down there is awesome! 7/10

I'd say it looks about right for an MSA of 1 million. It's a bit boxy, but it has some nice features. Overall I'd give it a 6.

Not that impressive... for a city that size...
but not bad... the density is fair... but there really is no height.

6

I really wish they'd build a building that would define OKC's skyline.
It's not bad anyway, and some of it's buildings are...I hate to say it...nicer then Tulsa's!

The actual skyline is kinda depressing, but downtown Oklahoma City as a whole is really awesome. Take a look at what is going on in Bricktown and you will be impressed. With a couple new towers built, which could be soon with the way downtown is booming, I think the skyline would be a lot cooler and reflect better on the cool stuff already down there.
