OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The sluggish economy will not slow Devon Energy's plans to erect its 54-story corporate headquarters in downtown Oklahoma City.

Devon's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Larry Nichols says work continues on the $750 million project, which would be the tallest building in Oklahoma.

Nichols says the company is working on final plans and getting approval for those now. It intends to start building the tower about a year from now.

Devon employees are now located in five buildings in the city.

I have rarely seen any building in the US over the last 30 years that didn't have some sort of delay. Timetables are to sell space, not to actually give an estimate of when someone actually thinks things will get started.

Try reading the article backup posted above. This is an oil company, Devon will pay for this up front in cash.

Let's be fair though. Just because Dallas can't get it up doesn't mean that other cities can't.

Arist what are you talking about? Now you're just babbling on about something, I can't quite tell.

My point was, don't say it won't get built. Plenty of buildings get delayed. Do I think it's wise to pay in cash? Well Idk about those kind of things, point was they have plenty of cash to do it, don't worry. This is an oil company.

It almost sounds like your jealous. But I can't blame you, of all the cities in the Midwest and we'll have probably one of the most magnificent towers to ever be looked upon in this region.

he wasnt saying literally in cash stupid sh*t, he was saying they already have the money and are ready to pay up front, what kind of stupid company would get hundreds of millions of dollars in cash to pay for a building?, you are an idiot
