OKLAHOMA CITY: New tallest l Taller than Dallas

4 posts in this topic

New DEVON ENERGY World HQ

Devon Energy (a company that most in OKC had no awareness of 7-8 years ago) has 1700 employees currently spread over downtown in 5 different buildings. This will consolidate them and allow for growth up to 3000 employees, which they expect to have by 2012 or soon after. They will be the sole tenant.

It includes a 10 story garage, meeting space, a six-story glass rotunda connecting it all, first-floor retail, and a park outside.

The rotunda is designed to fall right on the "Harvey Axis", a line that is being used as a focal point for redevelopment of a massive blighted area south of downtown. It will connect the OKC National Memorial to the Devon HQ, the Myriad Botanical Gardens, a new iconic central park, and the Oklahoma River on the south end.

54 floors

925 feet

1.9 million sf

I'll also point out that at 925', this will be taller than Dallas' tallest, Bank of America Plaza.

The design is a bit bland, but it's great that they aren't building some massive horizontal office complex in suburbia.

DVN was a pretty small company untill 1999. Then it bought PennZEnergy for 2.6B and it started rolling.

baking multi billion dollar additions each year.

pretty incredible growth for any company.

OKC should be thankful for having a company like that to help push the city into a new era.
