This will be crazy if/when this is built!

Maybe he should build it in Cali considering the housing crisis there.

I agree that it would look more in sync with the skyline if it was scaled back some.

Trust me with the current real estate market and companies returning keys to the banks for major office towers in most major cities, what sense does it make to build a tower like this let alone in downtown OKC? This will never get built, at least not as rendered.

Or the fourth tower was thrown in just to get publicity. Either way, neither the fourth tower, nor anything like it, are going to be built.

OK gets a lot of wind, right? I ran across someone who worked on the 102nd floor of the World Trade Center and on windy days, there's people who would get seasick, due to the swaying of the building.

And what's a condo or apartment without a balcony. Living with hermitically sealed windows?????????????????

A design revision calls for this building to be the tallest in the United States. It will be a mixed use residential and hotel skyscraper. Restaurants and an observation deck open to the public are planned for the top six floors.

There’s no way this building is getting built. As cool as it sounds I don’t know I’d want it to anyway. The Devon tower already looks a bit out of place amongst the other buildings. I’d love for them to build the three 345ft towers they have planned and then maybe 2 or 3 skyscrapers at around 500-800 feet a piece. That would drastically change our skyline; making it look more dense and look amazing.
