I like our skyline. It's not spectacular, but it's nice, and with the new 50 story Devon building going up, it's definitely going to change.

I love Oklahoma City, and I like its skyline very much. If I could get my family to go with me, I'd move there immediately. (I'd like a condo downtown!) Oh, well.....I can dream. Maybe someday it will happen.

I think OKC has a very nice skyline. I wonder how much it will change when the Devon tower is built? I think the Devon Tower is twice as tall as the next tallest building in OKC. Will take make it look off balanced. Is there any pics out there that shows what the skyline will look like when the tower is compleated?

NOt twice as tall, but tall. The Devon Tower will be 50 stories and something like 900 plus feet tall. The next closest building is the Chase Bank Building which is 36 stories and 500 ft tall.
Here's one picture of what is will look like.

Tulsa has a cool skyline too. I think it's great that both OKC and Tulsa have such handsome skylines. Bartlesville also has a skyline. It is unusual for a city its size to have such a skyline.
