Google Earth helps show what OKC will look like when the new Devon Tower is finished in 2012!

I see a lot of comments saying it's disappointing/underwhelming/small for an MSA of this size. Not really sure what cities people are thinking of, because it seems pretty comparable:

Oklahoma City:

Buffalo:


Raleigh:


Salt Lake City:


Birmingham:


New Orleans:


Hartford:


Richmond:


Louisville:

IMO only Louisville and New Orleans have better skylines. Maybe Salt Lake but only because of the mountain backdrop.


Also, here is a partial skyline shot with the Devon Tower included (that hasn't already been posted in this thread):

but when you consider that OKC is bigger than all of those cities, .....

I can see where people are coming from.

OKC should be competing with a different crowd, not the third tier. OKC should at least be the same as New Orleans's skyline.
