Sorry for that. They show for me (hopefully others as well). Here's a link to the post from okctalk's Devon Tower thread where they are.

Devon is such a pretty skyscraper. A very big tulip!

It's a fascinating building, I think.
Great! I asked already in past: When it'll be opened?

It would appear that they are starting the crane removal process. In a couple months or so, this building should be complete, am I correct?

I think you are correct AZN.

They are currently removing the West crane but will continue all remaining jobs with the East crane; which will probably come down in a month or two. At that point, I believe they will begin moving people into the skyscraper on the lower floors; but the tower is not scheduled to be fully officially complete until 2013.

Thank you for this information...
But 2013? That's more than a year, and they'realready removing the first crane.
Nearly 11 months to build, until it's ready? Well, I don't know.

The floors are really just basic shells at the moment, especially the upper floors. So there is a lot of internal buildout left to do. I wouldn't expect this to be 100% finished till spring '13.

No sooner than one of the two cranes constructing the Devon Energy Tower begins coming down, here's a hint of what's in the city's future...

Downtown Oklahoma City office market shines compared to U.S.

The Skyline Will Grow

yep, a new skyscraper!!!

This in addition to the yet to be designed but already confirmed new Sandridge tower and their new Activity Center (already u/c with the destruction of a building on the grounds in progress), Sandridge's reconstruction of the Braniff Building, a highrise convention hotel approved but yet to be announced/designed, and likely another highrise development due East of Devon tower.

OKC is quickly entering a skyscraper boom downtown. ... Good times!

Its looking really good! Hopefully Tulsa will build another skyscraper to compete, we have a lot of beautiful buildings around 150m to 200m range, especially the cityplex towers, but we dont have any close to the Devon's height yet, hopefully we can revitalize tulsa's downtown and both OKC and tulsa could eventually get better downtown's. Their have been numerous projects people have proposed for our river area, one person even wanted to build a island with some 30 story buildings on the middle of the arkansas river!

Do any of those have the potential to be over 500 feet? Devon looks pretty lonely, could definitely use something in the 600-700 foot range to help balance it in the skyline. Anything higher then Chase would help though.
