Been away from this thread for a while, but it would probably beat anything in 'Dollypartonville' by 800' since that would be Gatlinburg and east Tennessee.

Not sure if this has been posted yet. Pretty cool shot of the rotunda looking skyward.

Beekman and Aqua for sure.

This tower looks pretty decent and nice, but indeed just not the greatest. Although I do understand that this is a landmark for a city like Oklahoma City and I'm real glad that it's going to be build.

Groundbreaking ceremony happened today - do these photos count to move the thread to "construction" thread?

Thanks for the photos! I'd like to see this moved to U/C. But technically the tower is not U/C until they start piling. I think this one has some "Prep" work to be done first. Sometimes certain threads get to go to U/C forum a little early (i.e. Shanghai Tower) because of heightened interest. Others languish.

I submitted a request to update the title to 50 floors/850 feet weeks ago and no mods changed the thread.

Oh well, lets keep the photos coming on this one OKC members. Lots of people are excited about this one!

Devon is also spending $35 million on a complete renovation of the park bordering its tower to the south. Here is a rendering that shows more about how Devon will relate with the park and the streets around it.
