Not yet. I believe two more functional floors to go and two mechanical floors. They are now putting together the last of the forms for floor 48.

BoA Tower in Dallas - 921 ft.

Devon Energy Center (official name) - 850 ft. Was originally going to be 925 ft, 54 floots, but plans were revised before construction began since Devon decided to build its data center separate from the tower on the southwest side of OKC.

Couldn't be happier how this one turned out. I had all month to work on it. I make a cameo if you watch closely. Enjoy!

Yea,The Convention cntr. hotel will happen a looooooong time from now!The rumors consist of companies like MdFirst Bank,American Fidelity,Sandridge,and yes even Cheasapeake!The more logical rumors are MidFirst and American Fidelity,both companies have almost completely outgrown their current digs and Cheasapeake wants to buy out properties in and around MidFirst's current headquarters,AF now resides off of Classen Dr. in NW OKC and is due for expansion!

That video is wonderful, great job!

dmoor, I don't question Lackmeyer's knowledge whatsoever, but I can't help but think that his predictions are way off base.

Devon will be freeing up a ton of space in three towers in downtown when this is done. Midfirst isn't growing that fast are they? I know their growth is good but not enough to build a tower. Lastly, why would Chesapeake build a tower? They have a campus for a reason that they've invested too much money in.

And 20-30 stories for the convention center hotel? I highly doubt that. And what is the 11 story hotel being built in Bricktown?

I'm pretty sure where I read that most or all of the space Devon is vacated is already spoken for.

TU,MidFirst's current tower is not big enough now or for it's future and Chesapeake is buying up all the land around MF,as far all the rest,we will just have to wait!I have a feeling OKC will see a few more towers within 5-10 yrs!

Continental Resources is moving it's World Headquarters from Enid,OK to OKC!Harold Hamm,CEO of CR said he wants the entire current Devon HQ for future expansion!I might be mistaken but I think CR has allready bought out the current Devon hq.
