OKC has a great skyline for it's population!I think you dont even know what the skyline looks like,and I bet you only scrolled through this last page only,which doesnt even show the entire skyline!Compared to Philly,Yes ofcourse OKC has a small skyline,but when I rate a skyline it's based off of population!

im just curious hoosier, if somebody went on a phily thread (or your hometown) and people consistently degraded your city's skyline, calling it tiny or small when it is NOT as those of us who have been to or live in OKC know. ..

would YOU be called 'spineless' or sensitive if YOU pointed out that people are not recognizing there are buildings other than the giant new one. ....

It almost seems, people come on here and want to point out negatives against OKC. I dont get it. ... The city is getting a new tallest, that is 350 feet taller than the old tallest; yet OKC apparently doesn't have a skyline, the new tower completely dwarfs the anything else, there's nobody on those streets, ...... yada yada yada.

You know, what if it happened to YOUR city - wouldn't you get sick and tired of that chatter? Particularly when it is not true.

I've seen pics of Chicago and New York where there were no people on the streets or the pic only had a shot of a few buildings, but NOBODY went on there complaining or comparing them to an always busy Tokyo or whatever.

I think people from OKC would be LESS sensitive about those comparison comments if they were at least constructive OR if the person making the comments grew a brain. I think it is perfectly fine for Dmoore and others to correct otherwise IDIOTIC troll posts that people like to come on to almost all OKC threads making.

Personally, I think Phila has a tiny skyline considering its population/history, but I dont go on Philly threads (like Comcast Center or whatever their new tallest is) talking down their otherwise wonderful, historical city which I have visited and therefore know is more than just their relatively 'puny' skyline.

I wonder why Bud had the 'balls' to come on OKC's Devon thread and do that to them? Who is the spineless one? ....

@the last picture, the upper floors: Do they have any benefit?
They're looking so useless. Too small.

yeah thats for sure. what i mean is the fact that technical floors, crowns etc are usually clad excactly the same way standard office floors are clad. but this started with the beginning of curtain walls, i guess. so its pretty standard for todays architecture.

Those upper "levels" are merely ornamental. In an interview with a rep from Hines, I recall him describing the top as a "shroud" to conceal the mechanical equipment on the roof.
