When is the next tower going to implement some kind of restaurant or observation deck in their tower?  Imagine BOAT having a wrap around observation deck out there with a nice restaurant and bar inside the pyramid with 360 views...I mean that would be awesome.  Devon tower (50 stories) in OKC has a rooftop restaurant Vast and there's not nearly as much to see in OKC than Uptown.  Our skyline is big/tall enough and now that it stretches into South End, we need some new tower in the future to step up and build something cool up there for all of us to see.  We all dont work at BOA or DEC or live at the Vue...we need a public space to view these awesome sights & sounds from above (plus it would be a tourist attraction).

What ever happened to the space that Slugs 30th edition had? I went to a White party there in 1995 when I first moved here.

Can't tell from the photo, but is it designed to look like a thermostat screen? Feels like a missed opportunity if not.

Yes, its there Wi-Fi smart thermostat.  I am guessing the humidity levels were off and blurred that part of the photo, has nothing to do with my photo editing skills.

I have mostly positive things to say about both. Besides the cornices on BofA I think they’ve done a swell job. I like the way BofA and Honeywell balance well with each other and I think a similarly designed third building in a darker material would really even things out. The style looks like legos almost but I dig it in a limited capacity

It always makes me laugh that Ally made this big deal about how cool their crown was going to be and now they're the only new building that's never lit up.

Does it even have lights? As far as I can tell its just an ugly privacy fence to hide the mechanical equipment.

Yes. I think the screen is a similar material to the BofA pyramid. They lit up the screening during testing I believe, but as I recall, there was a big flaw. BofA has the support structure aluminum on the outside of the material. Because the support structure is behind the screening at Ally, when they lit it up it looked like someone was shining a light on fence posts or something.
