    OGE has some space at Leadership Square, but still resides mainly in the OGE building downtown. Enogex moved all of its staff from Central Park to Leadership Square about this time last year. The Central Park buildings at 50th and Lincoln were sold to Chesapeake, and are now occupied by Access Midstream, the former Chesapeake MLP.

    According to the investor presentation yesterday, the new MLP will combine all of CenterPoint's midstream assets with Enogex's assets in a new, single entity.

    I think it's going to go kinda like this.

    Enogex disappears (as in new name as the MLP) and CenterPoint's midstream employees are sent/recruited to OKC as the new name of the MLP with Enogex's existing employees.

    End result is massive amounts of employees for one new entity and thus they will need a new building for consolidation. This means Stage Center.

    I just wanted to drop in and say hi. I figured I owed it to you all after 139 pages on a thread I started. Good read. Interesting scenarios. Keep it up. I read it everyday.

    The tower in the center of the photo -- how about something like that for ours? Would work well with Devon Tower, methinks.

    Hey! Glad you said hi. I suspect, and Pete probably has stats on this, that there are a lot of lurkers who don't post, but read regularly. Welcome.

    Something like the BOA Center tower in Charlotte would be awesome! It's my second favorite skyscraper right behind Devon!

    I like a pointed skyscraper but I want to see something as unique as possible.

    Can't get much more pointed than this

    If you look at the stats on the entire forum page, it lists the views of each thread. More than it being 139 pages long is that it's closing in on a quarter million views!

    I actually like Turbonomic Tower but most here seem to hate it.

    Although I drop in from time to time (mostly to check if there is any REAL news), I've avoided posting in this thread - because quite frankly it's all a little ridiculous. But I do really like that second Frankfurt tower. If there is to be a tower, I like the idea of something that blends our traditional skyline with the jarring majesty of the Devon Tower. Ideally, the best looking tower would be something - say - halfway between the height of Devon and Chase with glass and traditional elements.

    I'm sure Steve L just laughs and hangs his head at everything written over lo these many pages. I'd still rather see ten five story buildings spread across MidTown in infill lots than any kind of tower but I suppose we'll all see whatever we shall see soon enough!

    I want 5 more towers started/finished within the next 5 years. Height needs to be between Chase and Devon or all taller than Devon. Don"t need and any shorter than Chase till after these next 5 are built.

    As long as we're at it, how about WANTING 5 towers to be started in calendar year 2013 - to hell with waiting 5 years! LOL. Not meaning to be flippant. I realize this thread is 90% about dreaming.

    I agree. I hope its something that compliments the existing skyline well, and bridges the gap between the Chase tower and the Devon tower.

    Unfortunately, towers don't get built just because we 'want' them. Things are looking good that one is going to be built soon, but 5 towers over 500 ft within 5 years is pushing it a little. OKC would have to become a serious boom town ala Charlotte, Miami, or Las Vegas in the 2000s and I just don't see that happening.

    So, why did you reply seriously to those posts?

    Pushing it.....LOL

    Pretty much no chance of happening. 10 years if we're lucky.
