Being an Oklahoma guy, I gotta give props to Devon Energy for putting up the money to make OKC's skyline look much better! Anyone interested in General Management in a huge energy company?

Maybe. How hard is it to get season tickets for the Sonics? :-)

Impossible to get season tickets to the Soncis, at least it will be impossible until Seattle gets another franchise and names them the Sonics. I think Seattle should rename the Seahawks to the Super Seahawks in honor of the SuperSonics. :-D.

Last I heard there are 16,000 (The Ford Center holds just under 20,000 total) people on the list of interested persons for season tickets. How many season ticketholders that actually turns into will be interesting.

My thing is that it's nice to see something going up in the downtown area. What has plagued Oklahoma City's skyline (aside from location nationally) is that land is so cheap here. Anytime anyone wanted to build something tall, they just moved away from downtown and built it. There are a number of 20+ story buildings in other parts of the city, but it doesn't contribute at all to our general "skyline". This at least will. If we could move all the other taller buildings from around the city to the downtown area it would start to look like something. Right now it's about half a dozen buildings of less than mediocre size. The tallest is 36 stories.

The other thing to consider is that 95% (not a confirmed figure) of other cities our size or larger have decades, if not a century, more time for development. Oklahoma City was founded in 1889 with the land run. If it hadn't been for oil, can you imagine what OKC would be? It gives me chills.

I've heard people compare OKC to the way Phoenix was in the late 60s (except for the weather). Phoenix had just gotten the Suns franchise and it was being marketed as a great place for people to retire to (Del Webb communities comes to mind).

I'm excited to see how the city changes in the future.

99% of sacrasm is lost in text. I'm going to assume you're being sarcastic even though this is still far enough out there I'm not seeing the relevance or humor.
