OKlahoma City should come around full circle around the Bricktown district. Should be an even more wonderful place some day in the near future.

OKC's skyline is just OK. I remember being a kid about 7-8 years old when i first went to downtown OKC, and i commented about how their skyline wasn't as good as Tulsa's. However, they do have a couple of really cool buildings (the older ones that aren't boxy). The newer towers, especially the Bank One tower is downright ugly.

Nice how they've managed to keep the buildings together to create some density, but it is too small for a city of 1m, and in one of the aerial shots shows some buildings in the distance. Why is there such a large open car park next to these buildings on the edge of the core?? Needs something new, most buildings seem to be from decades ago. Nicer than I had seen in previous pics though, good luck with Bricktown!!

The buildings in the distance are part of the northwest business district, developed when builders wanted high-rise office buildings overlooking Lake Hefner in northwest OKC. The large open car park next to the central core was once to be developed as a huge shopping mall, but the mall did not materialize after the OKC's economic collapse of 1984. An upscale mall (Penn Square Mall) was built in 1988 (remodeled 2001) a few miles northwest of downtown OKC. All that was left was the car lot that was supposed to be for the downtown mall, but is not being converted into a high-rise parking garage, and the new downtown library was built on the northern section. A lot will be happening with downtown OKC's skyline soon, and its density gives developers a perfect opportunity to add artistically to our skyline.

Pardon my last post, the open car lot is NOW being converted into a highrise parking garage, and this garage will not be your average multilevel box, the new garage will feature intricate designs to enhance the downtown area. Those aerial pictures were copyrighted in 1998, however, judging by some of what is absent from those pictures, and the fact that in one of the pictures the Murrah Federal Building is still there, these photographs are more than a decade old.

too small. It seems to be only two blocks wide. Like you visit the entire downtown in 5 minutes walking on foot.

5/10

I think it could look better for an CSA of about 1,200,000 but its ok and not too depressing like Norfolk, VA or Phoenix because their skylines really dont reflect their population (just my opinion) OKC-5.5/10
