Just because you misinterpreted something that I don't even understand could be, doesn't mean you have to be a smart-ass. It may happen in life but that doesn't mean I won't call your crap right out especially when I had no intentions other than to add onto your post. Plain and simple.

Here's the September construction update from 9-11-2010. I barely missed kinggober who did the photos above. It's almost the exact same time of the day. Enjoy!

Saw it with my own eyes last weekend. Very nice building. I also spent a lot of time looking around OKC and was quite impressed with the city. There are some nice art deco buildings downtown; Bricktown seems like a fun place; and I really like how a lot of the older areas are undergoing renovation.

Not bad, not bad. I wouldn't think that's permanent glass though, would it be? Seems a little early with so much more construction to go.

Of course it's permanent glass. A few test panels is one thing. But that's a couple of floors. Plenty of towers are built this way. It's no problem as long as the crews are competent and careful.

It is surprising not to see any safety netting around the higher floors though.

Your right. I was only looking at that small picture of the lower podium floors. There's plenty of netting around D HQ. So really there's no reason to not begin the glass installation.

Great update. Can anyone get a shot of it compared to the Colcord at this point? Be interesting to see exactly how tall it is compared to it.

Very nice photos of the cladding. That's going to be a very cool 'scraper....better than ours I am afraid....kind of a shame not to pass 902'...they are so close! Way to go OKC!

I drove by today and it looks like it's approaching half the size of its other neighbor Oklahoma Tower, one of the biggest on our skyline. I hadn't been by in about 3 weeks and it is amazing how big it has gotten!

Just the skeleton of this thing is massive looking. How high is it (in feet) would you guess?

Bryanosaurus made this on okctalk. Seems pretty accurate. I'd say it's around ~130 feet tall.
