When you see how Devon dominates the rest of the OKC skyline, (and especially being there in person to see how massive it is) it's crazy to think how small it still is when compared to the world's tallest. Imagine how some of these other scrapers would overwhelm that skyline..

This Emporis link shows that the Devon Tower is the 13th most expensive tower in all of North America and 10th in the U.S.!http://www.emporis.com/statistics/mo...s-northamerica

OKC needs a Burj Khalifa to balance out the skyline. It's going to look funny with just Devon.

I get the feeling that those comparisons are quite a bit out of scale *particularly girth wise.

Cheasapeake now needs to build a HQ to help balance out the skyline. Nice tower.

I'm just trying to think of what the skyline would look like if Leadership Sqaure was built to it's original 60 story proposal?I have heard that LS was announced to be 60 floors then scaled down and I have also heard that it was never proposed as 60 floor concept?
