I could see where someone could be more excited about Devon. Large scale for Ok. City...great design vs. a painfully slow moving project in NYC, whatever the reason.

The name was changed to One World Trade, by the way. Hey you'll come up with something. Freedom Tower is a little too yahoo Americana for New York, anyway. As in say, "freedom fries"?

Then again, maybe this thread should be about the Devon tower.

Or we could just carry on ... absent the requisite school-marming.

^Or else the 42-year old 'internet savant' should carry on a 3 city vs. thread like a 12 year old. You obviously need much more than a "school marm" as the crappy element you ultimately are on any of these boards.

I assume you were banished from NA skybar. And if it was self imposed so much the better.

I wasn't banished from the NA skybar. Rather, I became irretrievably bored debating apes with throats of parrots.

No offense, of course.

And thus, the Devon Tower thread falls into the same habitous ways of all Oklahoma City threads. Oh well. Only 2 weeks until construction starts. Mhmm. ;]

Are they doing any preparations of the site for a ground breaking ceremony? I know they are just starting out with the parking lot, but you would think with a project such as this, it's a big PR event for Devon and the mayor's office/city council.

OKC deserves a new tower...Let's hope it goes well, I'd like to see it as I usually pass-through OKC once or twice a year.

Should have cut down the height to 900 feet instead of 850 feet. Also we should have put a 50- to 100-ft spire on top of the tower. But hey, even with the reduced height, OKC is still gonna beat Tulsa, right?

Ceremony to begin construction is next Tuesday.

First phase of construction will involve excavation of the underground parking structures at the site, and vertical expansion of the above-ground parking structures north of the site.
