70 feet is not noticable to the untrained eye especially when you're looking up at both of them from street level or even from a distance.

I could tell, but your average Joe couldn't.

BTW I find this new tower to be much sleeker looking than Dallas' BOA. Its starting to show its age.

I looked at the construction of the tower and the building is a lot thinner than what the image you posted gives off. BOA IMO is still a lot more imposing than the Devon tower. But anyway good for OKC the building is nicely designed and will fit right in with OKC skyline.

Dallas isn't gorgeous, but it's not Houston ugly either.

Give me an eclectic mix of piney woods, tropical vegetation, 100 year old Live Oaks with Spanish Moss hanging from the limbs, bayou's, & coastal plains any day over Dallas & North Texas' sparsely green scrub brush like landscape. Dallas' only dense vegetation is found around the creek beds & inner city neighborhoods where the trees were planted decades ago.

We get the point! You do not like the landscape.
