    According to a source I have from Starwood, there are no W's planned for Oklahoma City.

    To put in perspective, the Dallas Convention Center Hotel is 1.2 million square feet, it's 23 floors, but has a larger weird L shaped foot print:

    Devon Tower is 1,800,000 square feet, including the podium and rotunda. So...

    Assuming a similarly sized podium/rotunda-street....AND
    Assuming the same sized floor plates....

    We would have a 27-28 story tower based on square feet alone....

    Very poor assessment as there are a lot of assumptions about this inside the math. Basically a 1,000,000 square foot Devon Energy Center would be 27-28 stories.

    Every soft comment I heard is that it will be around 30 stories, so that about right...

    So with a limited area to build on and with modern floor to ceiling heights,is it logical to assume this tower could reach 400-500ft'?

    The Sandridge tower is 393ft' tall and 30 floors,but was built in the 70's,a newer 30 story building would be even taller I'm assuming!

    After thinking about this for a second....


    Isn't the convention center supposed to be 1MM square feet, roughly. And isn't the budget around $250MM? The page was created on 5/14/2009 and updated on 6/13/2012. Is it possible this page was about the convention center and the hotel is just a separate aspect of this bid? I.E. the bid is actually for the convention center with a request for proposals for a convention hotel? So the full budget and sq. footage in this bid is for the convention center and the hotel would be a 100% separate aspect of this?

    I do not see any way in Hades we get 1 million square feet for $250 million. The Dallas CC is around 1.25 million and has 6 halls, a small arena, and several small meeting rooms. Hall E (F) has the largest unobstructed floor space of any CC in the US - approx 250000 ft2. I think the new OKC CC will have a bit over 250000ft2 total.

    Guys, they're referring to the new convention center. Look at the category heading: Conventions/Arenas, Green Buildings, Hotels/Motels/Resorts

    I believe the hotel portion was added to the original CC bid because why would it say the operator is Hilton Hotels Corporation, and upscale? It was also noted that the new CC hotel will be around $250M. This bid was specifically in the hotel construction bid of build central. At least we know we Hilton might be the brand, which is good.

    Also to note the new CC is slated to only be 470,000 square feet, per the MAPS3 implementation plan.

    You are correct the new cc is 470000sf. Could they possibly be constructing the two at the same time for a total of 1 million sf?

    Isn't that total spread across two phases though, only one of which is funded by MAPS 3?
