I had not been to the north side in 9 months to a year. Completely different looking. The parking garage elevators are all granite (marble?) and stainless steel. Very nice.

So the building is complete externally, yes?

Wow, I LOVE those pictures. I like the contrast between the older building and the new one! I wish we could get something like that here in Columbus!

I think there are a few glass panels to be installed where the last crane was, but other than that it looks finished.

A few new towers in between Devon Tower and Chase Tower height will make Oklahoma City's skyline look excellent.

I'll say it again: this tower is a marvel of contemporary architecture and the best skyscraper built in the U.S. since 1 Bryant Park.

I'm hoping all these investments in downtown OKC bring solid in-fill with them.

Devon begins move into new building

Devon Energy Corp. began moving boxes into its new downtown headquarters on Friday. The first group of about 80 employees will report to work there Monday.

By Jay F. Marks | Published: March 16, 2012

The first moving van arrived at Devon Energy Center on Friday as the company prepares to have its first 80 employees report to work at the new building.

Employees from security, support services, human resources and hospitality will move into Devon's new 50-story headquarters Monday.

Executive Chairman Larry Nichols lifted the first packing crate off the truck, as the company's downtown migration began.

“We'll be moving in about every weekend between now and July,” Nichols said.
Devon will have about 2,100 employees and contractors in the building at 333 W Sheridan by August.

It will mark the first time the company has had all of its headquarters operations under one roof since 1999.

Such an awesome tower. To get an idea of it's height - it's almost exactly the same as the GE Building (Rockefeller), Metlife Building or Trump World Tower (all NY obviously)

Great new building for OKC. I wish we had it up in the Twin Cities. I'm wondering if this building would have still been built if the federal government wasn't in the business of giving tax breaks and other money to energy companies? As someone pointed out that they are assuming there are other skyscraper companies possibly in the works. Would they be energy companies also? Does OKC have any fortune 500 companies based there?

Both Devon Energy and Chesapeake Energy are Fortune 500 companies. Hopefully, the city can recruit an out-of-state company or two that aren't in the energy industry to relocate their headquarters there.
