According to Wikipedia, Oklahoma City ranks #31 with a population of 560,332.

I take these city population figures with a grain of salt because they are merely political delineations for election purposes; we live in metro areas, not cities.

For example here in Philadelphia the city population is 1.55 million but our metro area is 6 million. A better example is Miami, #42, with only 433,000 ... and yet the greater Miami metro area which covers it's suburbs in 3 counties has something like 5.5 million people.

A couple of you guys are wrong....you need to google the largest city by area so you can see the results.

Jacksonville is not first by any stretch, 4 cities in Alaska has everyone beat. Jacksonville is 5th and OKC 8th.

Yeah and as for the 2/3 open land, that is why I said specifically IN AREA. Wasn't talking about population at all.

Here you go. Oklahoma City Metro ranks 44th. Of course, these are just 2009 estimates by the Census Bureau. We won't know the official numbers until the 2010 count comes in.

I also said in Area but was Wrong anyway! OKC is The 3rd biggest city in The Lower 48 States, and 8th overall it also is The 2nd largest city in America by Land area among Major cities!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...cities_by_area I was using The OKC CoC info for my rankings but I guess there wrong according the this Wiki link!

OKC proper-#31 largest city in America OKC Metro-#44 largest Metro in America and I think OKC's TV market is also in The Fourties!

Check yourself because you just rubbed me the wrong way. I was just clarifying for other people that might not have caught that otherwise. Most don't and that is why there is a common misconception that OKC is sparsely populated. So enough about population statistics. I think everyone knows how big and populated OKC is now.

I don't think the size of the city matter. Its a skyscraper it isn't hard to believe OK would build it.

By popular consensus the population talk is over... If you're interested google it or go through these last two pages for info. ;p

Any updates?

Not if the construction workers are very careful.

It is only early if the glazing subcontrator is so fast that they overrun the structure rising and then have to wait. They General Contractor is not going to schedule that to happen as that would increase his costs and he could possibly lose the skilled team that knows his project to another project with no delay.

It is common practice for the glazing subs to be working about 8 floors down and it takes them some time to install the glass so it will probably work out around the same pace as the structure rises which is about 8 days per floor or less.

That happens in life, just as it did when I responded...sure didn't have a clarifying ring to it when I read it.

Yes, excellent update, thanks for all the pics.

The past 2 or 3 winters have ravaged all of Oklahoma with ice, snow and record lows. I know last winter OKC got hit hard a couple times and had something over 10" in a few hours?... but we'll see. Maybe a local can answer a little better or if I was wrong on anything.
