I used to live in charlotte back in the late 90's/ early 2000's and watched a lot of those towers go up! Once the banks began to expand the condo towers started going up. I'd like to see downtown OKC get a decent size condo tower in the years to come.

Forgive me if this has been discussed but will the tower have lighting on the top portion or?

Tulsa is OKC's douchebag little brother than points out that OKC is growing but at the same time getting acne and sweaty armpits. We'll be able to beat you guys up someday, but we are still younger so we'll just cherish the time to make fun of you guys. But remember, we are still family. Even though at times OKC can be worst big brother ever

Being witness I call this debate/argument/fight/bickering nonsense to a cease.
Verdict: OKC and Tulsa are unique in their own ways and are great for our state. OKC is taking the cake right now but Tulsa has the potential to do just as much if not more.

Settled? I think so.
Moving on now.

Thanks for the updates and latest pics. This is one fine tower. I guess it's up to the 21st floor?

Very nice progress on the atrium. Thanks for the updates.

Found this article from today.

"Tower cranes are now the tallest structures in Oklahoma City as construction continues on the $750 million, 50-story Devon Energy Center. The office tower is almost halfway to its ultimate height and stands at 23 floors or 340 feet high..."
