Does she light up well at night? Looks better and better every time I see new pictures. Thanks for keeping those of us who don't live anywhere near OKC updated on this beauty.

she has minimal lighting at the moment on the top. Here is the best pic I can find, taken by Unfrsakn from the Film Row district:

she will have significant LED lighting up the ridges and top once all of it is wired properly.

All you need is to finish the lighting, liven up that street with some people and booming storefronts, and get rid of those overhead wires.

Not to derail the discussion but - I wasn't thinking stripper music at all actually. Instead I was thinking of just the beat and sound of the song Rack City itself as it is dominating and out-there, just like this tower. I recall hearing that song as I was driving on the interstate and looking at Devon - it fit.

I usually dont even listen or pay attention to Rap music lyrics (even if I 'sing it' myself, I don't focus on the words at all), i listen for the music and the composition of the song.

Yeah this towers a lot better than that song. I do rap so I guest it's a little different for me. A few more towers in OKC, and Racks on Racks will pop in your head lol

Just two or three years ago that street was skid row. So it definitely looks better than it was.

I just drove through OKC today and this tower totally dominates the skyline. Its just giant, saw it from before el Reno out on the plains on I40. Real nice quality, not a cheap looking tower at all. Nice.

here is the update since most of the park and the lobby have been opened. everything looks amazing. these were originally posted on okctalk.com

Front



Great patio seating area with several entrances to the restaurants inside.



West side entrance



The lawn.



The auditorium frames the lawn. Myriad Gardens across the street.

Absolutely gorgeous building. Is anyone else excited about going to the finals ?!

This is a huge time for OKC as well as Oklahoma. We are finally starting to get recognition.

the local news stations use the shot from the west along the river or from their tower cams to the north.

again with the delusion. you're talking about my reference to a previous tulsa poster's rambling about okc skyline poor in both quality and quantity prior to devon or some nonsense.

okc always had one of the best skylines for cities between 1-2 mil, now we'll all admit the skyline is a little awkward with this devon beast that just landed from mars. it will take some time for the skyline to normalize again.
