All I know is what I've read on OKCTalk, Lackmeyer and here. Seems like they're talking a 2012 start.

No, not SandRidge. I actually don't know who it would be. I've heard American Fidelity Assurance but I'm not saying that's who it would be, that's more of a rumor than the new skyscraper. And the rumors also say that it will be announced soon, most likely when Devon is complete. SandRidge's building hasn't been officially announced but pretty much everyone know's it'll happen, just waiting for the official announcement which is suspected to come before the end of 2011.

And also, I remember reading that SandRidge's new highrise is part of their master plan and their master plan is expected to be complete by 2015 if I remember correctly. In other words, yes 2012 is when we'd expect it to start, 2013 at the latest.

And yes, Continental was the buyer of Devon's current building.

Yes, that's correct. Sandridge's new highrise won't be terribly tall I don't think.

If you guys wanna see a very RECENT visual rendering of Sandridge's completed downtown campus and a conceptual look at the new highrise, then click here. Really nice video from OKC's SkylineInk.

And it probably won't be anything with a massive footprint either.

I wouldn't think so either, but from knowing the site, hearing various rumors that have turned out to be true, and seeing this conceptual video, it does seem that this new building could and does span the entire n/s portion of the block. That'll inject a significant piece of urban fabric back into the Broadway streetwall; having lost the India Temple. Hopefully whatever size this building is, it interacts with the street with retail/restaurant.

Sorry Devon. We're off track here. Haha.
