Forgive me for not posting the past couple days. But if you scan the headlines at www.newsok.com, you’ll notice what’s kept me so busy.
Today was one of those moments where I realize I’m truly priviledged to write the first draft of history. Devon Energy is moving forward with plans to build a skyscraper in downtown Oklahoma City – “iconic” – as CEO Larry Nichols describes it, and one that will top the city’s current tallest buildings.
Don’t get too hung up on the 37 stories. The height will almost certainly go even higher as design work commences, and don’t be too surprised if it tops 40 stories.
Interesting sidenote: today I also had to write about the next phase of improvements at First National Center – a story that likely would have made front page if not for my reporting on Devon Tower.
This obviously goes without saying, but Mayor Mick Cornett, who has been out evangelizing the masses about how Oklahoma City is on the verge of becoming a major league city, is a very, very happy mayor today.
So… any questions?
