Here are some recent pics posted by architect5311 of how Devon Tower will interact with the Myriad Gardens across the street. In the coming decade this park will be even more surrounded by activity as an elementary school is built just to the west, the convention center is torn down and replaced with development to the east, and a new convention center is built on the parking lots to the south.

Devon Tower definitely has a nice neighborhood shaping up.







Here is a bonus of a water feature in the Myriad Gardens from the City of OKC Twitter:

I hope so. It's a blight on its increasingly pleasant surroundings.

The present renovation will be about 20 years old by the time they are ready to tear it down toward the end of this decade- with this new park, all the development in downtown, and the new transit hub (which could be offering Amtrak, commuter rail, streetcar, bus, and maybe even HSR by 2020) on the other side of this convention site, it just doesn't make sense for a superblock with blank walls to be there anymore. Plans are not set in stone of course, they could always save portions of the convention center (for instance the arena might be worth keeping)

It would be sweet to eventually replace Cox with a mixed-use development of some kind. That would really ramp up the synergy in the CBD.

Really nice against that deep blue backdrop! This tower is a total 15/10!

Rise, cladding, rise!


I'm not sure how Devon is going to end up "interacting" with the Myriad Gardens, but does that mean Sheridan will have limited or no motor vehicle access between Robinson and Hudson, like how it is right now? I would think they would need that traffic flow, especially with the significant vehicle increase that Devon will create in that area.

The street will be reopened eventually. I'm not even sure it's gotten the Project180 update due to the staging area for the Devon tower.

The cladding's stark blue actually feels a little out of place in the rest of the skyline, imo. I like it, but I don't feel this tower really fits in.
