the pics look awesome, and yes - the tower isn't finished yet, still in T/O status.

It's reached the final height (long ago). That's when they changed it from T/O to Com. I believe.

By the way, leaving politics out of this, I saw the "Obama's America: 2016" documentary by Dinesh D 'Souza and they showed tiny bit of downtown OKC and Devon Tower probably four or five times. You wouldn't be able to tell what city it was if you aren't familiar. But, Devon Tower makes an appearance in it. They never mentioned why, nor showed the entire skyline. And I think it was where Dinesh probably spent most of his time writing the documentary? Not sure...

Those pictures don't even look like OKC, more like an asian city in China.

I just love this tower. Sure it sticks out, but I have a thing for buildings that really have an impact

I flew over Oklahoma City at 37,000 feet a few weeks ago and this building is clearly visible.

Also that lighting looks pretty sweet on a beatiful skyscraper.

I drove by OKC about a month ago, and it was amazing how much of an impact this makes, even from a distance. Magnificent tower.

With all the mazelike highways leading everywhere, I'm glad I can always look for this building in the sky and not get lost lol

Shame. Cities need large, green lawns like that every now and again.
