I check the webcam daily to follow the progress. I started watching in September and it's progressed so much since. I'll be happy when its completed but then I'll have to find a new skyscraper cam to watch

Some buildings display crosses at Christmas. I personally don't like it.

I agree. I think it is tacky and disrespectful to others who have different beliefs. However, keep that in mind that Oklahoma is part of the Bible Belt.

Other than FNC's spire is it safe to say The devon tower is now OKC's 2nd tallest building?

I don't think the crosses present very much of an issue... I have no problems with them, personally.

Anyway, this tower is continuing to impress.

Seems to me that if you made them take the crosses down that that would be disrespectful to Oklahomans, the VAST majority of whom would consider themselves Christians. Just sayin' ...

BTW, tower looking good!
