Best pictures by far, yet. Those need to be entered into some contests or something.

And, yes, OKC desperately needs at least one 600 footer to help fill it in a little and it will look awesome.

I think something between 600 and 700 would be good, sort of square the difference between Devon and Chase.

Wow! Devon didn't just build a tower, they rebuilt like 3 city blocks! Impressive how much one tower can transform a city.

That 600-700 footer to fill in the gaps may only be a few months away from an announcement.

Mark Beffort, a major player in the downtown real estate game, got everyone talking this past week when he declared that, yes, there will be another office building built downtown as part of a yet unidentified company moving its headquarters to downtown Oklahoma City.

Beffort, who represents the owners of Leadership Square, City Place, Corporate and Oklahoma towers, didn't go any further with this tease. But it's enough for me to share what I've heard from several sources; this tower is no low-rise. If the project proceeds as planned, this tower will be 40 stories tall.

The roof is three sided, and here I was thinking it was only two.

Nice tower! I went last month to OKC and they were still finishing the roof
I spend one day in OKC as a side trip of my Dallas weekend travel..The city have some interesting places but I wouldn't spect the streets to be empty and calm in the downtown area..coming from San Francisco I was specting more people and street traffic specially during the weekend but the place was dead..well this was the perspective of a "west-coaster"..
Is it always like that? I mean it's fine I'm just asking,It was my first time in the Midwest

OKC and Tulsa's CBDs are just now becoming repopulated. The midwest is sprawled out, so more activity goes on in the suburbs and their respective neighborhoods and parks.

An 18 story tower going up for an energy company. Building looks like a hospital, unfortunately. That's about it. Refer to the Southeast Development section if you want or need anymore information.

I just wanted to point out Oklahoma isn't in the Midwest, it's in the South.
I've never been to OKC but I've been to much smaller cities, and the amount of people never surprises me.
