    I have a feeling that a few strip bars on his street is what he needs. He seems quite upset & perhaps needs a "breather" from the stress of no one taking his trolling seriously.

    I think that space in chase tower might just be the old Devon Mail room in the basement of chase tower. I saw some continental people there a few weeks back.

    Pics or it didn't happen.

    That name has been tossed around several times. Why are you tossing it again? New news?

    I'll say just say it was very drunken, unreliable source but still no less credible then a lot of the other rumors on here.

    Have no idea who this new company is, so this will be very, very interesting news when it finally breaks.

    Sounds like all types of deals are being worked on in the background, which is why this is slow to develop.
    Wow.

    Hmmmm.....

    Was it just me or did Steve mention a developer proposing a new development with 1,000+ apartments overwhelming the market??? Maybe its not a company but a mixed use high rise with retail on the bottom and 40 stories of condos/apartments? How awesome would that be? I would definitely look at moving there!

    FYI to the prior conversation a few pages back with everyone freaking out about exportig oil to china, etc... This article supports what I was trying to say. Hate to stray from the topic again but at one point it was relavent.

    With Steve you have to sometimes put things together and follow clues but I read what you read - a single development with 1000 units. That would be the equivalent of two Deep Deuces. A development like that would take 5 or more years to finish and there is no way 1,000 units could all open on the same day. If they were all tower units that would be around 5 highrises.

    Hopefully Steve gives some more clues about the Mystery Tower in today's chat, or at least some more teasers...

    I believe the Stage Center site will be the first new tower development to be announced; probably in the next 2-3 months.

    But as stated elsewhere, there are clearly other projects in the works.

    Wow, there's a lot of butthurt in the Houston thread over OKC. They don't seem to want to admit that there big companies were mostly taken from Oklahoma.

    I wish we could have kept them here in the first place though.

    Ha...

    There is a lot of wishful (delusional) thinking on that board about companies moving to OKC and building new skyscrapers in downtown OKC. There have been similarly fact-challenged "rumors" in that same thread about ConocoPhillips moving its HQ to OKC and Phillips 66 moving its HQ to OKC and BHP Billiton movings its North American HQ to OKC and the latest was Linn Energy (which very recently expanded its HQ lease in downtown Houston). Cemex was another one. The thread is fed by a hyper-cheerleading business reporter for the local paper.
