As a Fort Worth resident, I must say.... YOU LUCKY BASTARDS!


Seriously though, it's looking good. It definately improves the skyline by a mile.

Not sure of this has been mentioned, but the permit issued for the restaurant on floors 49 and 50 was for $11 million. Looks like it will be a restaurant with a dress code and reservations required. And rightfully so. I can't wait to dine there for a special occasion.

I can't wait to see the cladding topped out. The crown is going to look so sick when it's finished. Hope it's done by the time I go home for Thanksgiving.

Very nice design, it gives the small skyline of Oklahoma City a big boost, to become the landmark.

Nice tradition! In Aruba we just put the flag on every structure when topping out, even one story homes ;-).
