Great building, but it definitely won't fit in.

I talk about it to my family and girlfriend too when we are down there or I'm looking at pictures, etc. and they get so tired of hearing me talk about OKC and this new tower. They just don't understand!

Resembles the Manila Tower, a proposed skyscraper in Manila.



Anyways, a great design! Very modern.

For those of you who think this proposed tower would look better in Tulsa than it does in Oklahoma City, the tower is being constructed because the Oklahoma City skyline should rival Tulsa's skyline. Sure, Tulsa has taller buildings, but Oklahoma City has a larger population than Tulsa.

Sure it will, it will be reminisent of the days when the IDS Center was the only tower that dominated the Minniapolis skyline, for the better part of 10 years...!

And this is a fine tower, well proportioned and massed, and of course this tower could only be built, (now) in, you guessed it ......Oklahoma City..!!!

Devon just reported another $4 billion loss in the first quarter 2009. Rumors are rampant that the tower will be scaled back or not built at all.

Let's hope not. Though with the economy rebounding, the price of energy will increase, meaning more revenue for companies like Devon. So I wouldn't put this one in the grave just yet.

Patience. That sucks to hear about the loss. I would still think that it would be built at it's current 925 ft proposal though.

Probably won't be built in OKC at all.

^I heard on a local radio station today (and I live in the OKC Metro area) that construction is on schedule on the Devon Tower. The main reason why Devon is wanting it built is to consolidate all of its offices into one structure instead of the five buildings they are in right now. So yes, it is getting built.
