You can now see the where the steel is going to bolt in for the rotunda. The three boxes to the right of the circle are for trees

In case you forgot what it looks like


I would bet money this crawler is going to fly the steel for the rotunda

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe most of the rotunda/lobby area will be open to the public right? What's planned for the space?

Yes it will be. There will be shops and restaurants from my understanding.

Thanks!

I'll definetly be visiting Devon HQ when this is finished. This project reminds me more and more of the IDS Tower/Crystal Court in Minneapolis. Only difference is the tower is on the outskirts of downtown instead of the heart of it.

Great picture. We haven't seen the tower from that angle before. The progress on the glass is fantastic.

Love the glass! Can't wait to see when it complete! I hope soon more developers will come along and build more high rises to improve Oklahoma City skyline.

I've been wondering if the glass is going to "disappear" against our extremely blue Oklahoma skies. That will accentuate the tower's height that much more I would think as the sides will seem undefined.

maybe we could compare it to other projects using similar glass/heights. anybody have any pics of other peer buildings?

I believe there is supposed to be one in Atlanta and one in Houston but I can't recall the names off the top of my head.

the building in the link above is the duke energy center, it is of similar height and shape. It always reminds me of this building.

Eighth Avenue Place under construction in Calgary is by the same architects and uses a very similar glass. Maybe we can expect it to look something like this:



I just can't wait to see it with the Oklahoma City skies like these:

Damn fast progress! Only been gone 5 days and we have a ton more glass up! Looking damn sharp too., And no it's not ever going to disappear against the sky....we have a blue glass building or two and you can always see them. They do look killer with the sunset though. You guys are in for a treat!
