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.

I am sorry, but this really isn't true. OKC's skyline before Devon wasn't that great, the tallest building was 150 meters, and the architecture wasn't amazing, excluding a few buildings. I like OKC a lot, I am just trying to be realistic.

Nice. The public space has been taken care off very well.

i think thunder in 6 is the sensible pick, as much as i'd love to call a sweep. i think the heat might steal a game in okc, but i don't think much of their "home court" if you will, for a team that people don't like but respect.

the problem is that this is a concerted dialog coming out of tulsa these days, where the script has flipped and now okc used to have a bad skyline but no longer does. i don't understand how that can be maintained with a straight face. you guys are always measuring yourselves up to okc, but the problem is that skyline competing is fleeting. work on your neighborhoods and streets instead, perhaps the two cities could use a healthy competition there.

excellent article about walkability in tulsa:
http://thislandpress.com/04/30/2012/...buffalo-drift/

and i am certainly not about to pretend that walkability is any better in okc. however i am tired of hearing people from tulsa engage in revisionist bloviating on okc's pre-devon skyline. let it go guys - okc had a decent skyline, very compact, although we can all agree that the architecture is conservative. don't forget we've always been a smaller version of dallas.

It's not finished yet. I'd prefer to wait and see some photos from the top floor restaurant when that opens in a few months. After a surge of new photos then this can go to archives.
