Tulsa was a tad overbuilt. Of course if we get some more significant developments going on around the BOk Center we may in the future see a residential mid rise or hotel. But don't count on it too soon. The only thing that has any steam, hardly, is a new downtown hotel by the BOk Center. And we've all seen how that has gone.

Wonderful tower! Now OKC just needs about 3 or 4 more towers so this building doesn't look so out of place.

Still in awe over this building.. What a great contribution to a very underrated city... I think for people that mis-judge this city should take note of what the MAPS projects have sparked... Looking forward to seeing what is certainly to be much more.. Congrats OKC...

So according to history, we should be nabbing another skyscraper or two within the next few years. All of our tallest being completed in groups within a couple of years apart.

Didn't even notice that trend, definitely a possibility.

I mean realistically, I don't really believe that we will get another skyscraper based just off the historical trends, but I thought that was neat.
