Which of these cities skylines do you think is best? All three have their own qualities, but which one stands out? Given the population size, Little Rock has a great skyline that might slide under some people's radar.

I think OKC still has the best but I was in a bookstore the other day and they had a coffee table book of Skylines of America. Little Rock was in it but OKC and Tulsa were not.

BTW - I think the Sandridge building would have looked a lot better if the big windows were at the bottom and small windows at the top.

Little Rock isn't nearly as nice as OKC and Tulsa. It is more competitive with Wichita. Nice little town, but not a city. Heck, Midland, Texas has a better skyline than LR.

Little Rock's population is only 189,515, this skyline is very impressive for a city that size.

Tulsa has the advantage of having the condo/apartment towers just south of the downtown CBD that add to the overall skyline. So it looks a lot bigger if you are looking at it from that angle but not nearly as impressive if you are viewing it from the north. I'd say after Devon is complete OKC will have the more impressive skyline from afar. Tulsa will need a new tower to pass OKC at that point.

The angle of that picture makes OKC's skyline look like it's more than like 3 blocks deep. Impressive, though.

Yes but their metro area population is close to 700,000....I'm surprised by Midland's skyline, too. I never knew that metro had over 250,000 residents.

I think you could make an argument for Tulsa or OKC being the best, but I think they are both better than Little Rock. Little Rock is a nice skyline though.

I also find Little Rock's skyline incredibly impressive for it's size.

I am torn between OKC and Tulsa. I think they're both beautiful in their own regards. Tulsa seems more outdated and less dense, but it's towers are the tallest and the most beautiful. OKC's is much more eclectic and modern, not to mention dense, but is also short and boxy.

Kerry,
As for the windows on the Kerr-McGee/Sandridge tower,....when I was in architecture school at OU in the 70's, I learned that the arrangement and sizing of those windows was no mistake. Here's the deal: If you are on the street level, and look up at other towers, it appears that they get smaller as they go up, which is typical perspective. The Sandridge building with windows getting larger, the higher they are on the building, gives an optical illusion of just the opposite. Check it out in person, and I think you'll see what I mean.

Midland is oil money, when I worked for Toys R Us, it was interesting because the 1 TRU they had there would be like one of the biggest in sales and volume when oil money is rolling in, but when its down, that place would be like a ghost town.

I may sound like a yardbird but I like the OKC one better because it look more modern. Tulsa has a nice downtown though but to me its really boring. Little rock is indeed impressive for its size.

I don't have any problem with the design of buildings in either skyline. They are what they are and were designed based on the budgets, trends, and needs of the developers at the time they were built. Neither city will ever have the historic skyline buildings of New York or Chicago or the newer trends such as Dubai or Shanghai. Traditional is what works in Oklahoma like it or not.

There are two issues....which has the most appealing PICTURE of a skyline, or which has the better skyline. If you actually go to LR, it is not all that impressive. Amarillo? Please....

Tulsa's is enhanced because the downtown sits on a hiltop and therefore sites up higher from the river. OKC starts at a low spot.

Relative for it's size Oklahoma City has had a historic skyline with the First National Tower, Ramsey Tower(City Place), Biltmore(razed), Petroleum Building(razed) and others, which between 1931 and the early 1970's was one of the more impressive skylines west of the Mississippi.

I would definitely put the Devon Tower in the newer trend category.

That is very true, which is why you often see the Tulsa skyline photographed from the river so it appears much taller because it sits a good hundred feet higher than the river itself. Go from Riverside into downtown on Denver Ave. and you see how much higher it is than the valley below.

The modern/eclectic boost to Oklahoma City's skyline lies in Leaderhsip Square, it has shape and form. Oklahoma Tower isn't eclectic per se, but having to angled sides on the NW and SE corners of the tower makes a difference.

First National and City Place have a lot of shape and form. That leaves Chase Tower and Sandridge Tower in the boring category with its minimalist international style.

In Tulsa, four of the five tallest towers are essentially boxes. Mid-Continent Tower, however, is awesome, to say the least. One of my favorite buildings, and it is a classic Tulsa icon.

Little Rock is actually a remarkably nice little city, and it deserves some credit in my opinion. They've had a decent amount of mid-rise infill as well, on the eastern edge of the skyline. They also have historic streetcars that link the River Market area with North Little Rock's downtown area..and the River Market is one of my favorite urban areas in the south.

The older OKC highrises were typical of what was being built at the time they were constructed and were, indeed, impressive for a city of our size at that time. The Devon Tower will be equally impressive but won't be as "out there" as some of the high rises being built in some foreign cities. Many of those seem to be being constructed strictly to say "look at me" rather than following form and function.

The only reason little rock looks even remotely close is because there's no real scale in those pictures.

Little rock has only a few buildings in excess of 100 meters (330ft) and their size drops fairly rapidly at that. Little Rock downtown was surprisingly nice when I was there about 18 months ago. I came away very impressed. The rest of the town I saw was very bad. As downtowns go for hanging out as a young person, I would say OKC>Little Rock > Tulsa.

Keep in mind I work in downtown tulsa...for working I would say OKC > Tulsa > Little Rock. The traffic in downtown little rock was unbelievably bad for the four days I was there. Furthermore i would add in another five years I fully expect Tulsa to pass little rock as a great place to hang out. Joints like McNellies and the addition of a very nice ball parka nd other places to eat will continue to add to the nightlife in downtown tulsa. Additionally Little Rock has NOTHING like midtown in Tulsa which is very cool and very nice area to hang out.

You are exactly right, there were two or three buildings all midrise under construction when I was there in sept/oct of 08. I was very impressed with the development going on in the downtown area. The river market is fantastic, we stayed at the peabody for four nights and it was nice and we loved the downtown area. Both came away impressed with downtown but the city overall was not as good as OKC or Tulsa IMO.

Yeah, admittedly, 90% of Little Rock looks like North Tulsa -- save for some nice suburban areas far-west and some nice inner areas just west of downtown.

Last summer I was coming back in from a trip I take every summer to the Blue Ridge Mountains and I stopped in Little Rock to do the Clinton Library. I had lunch in the upscale restaurant on the patio that slopes down overlooking the rusty old rail crossing over the Arkansas River in front of the library and it was really an immersion experience in a place that was a lot more sophisticated than I expected. Got bit by the bug and decided to check out the area before I left.

A lot has been said by myself and others in the past leading up to our streetcar initiative about Little Rock's streetcars--how cost-effective they were, how they've led to investment, and how they greatly exceeded expectations--anything Little Rock can do, hopefully OKC can do better.

Skyline--tulsa
potential--OKC
Little Rock--Come on, been a dozen times. I could take a strategic picture of Duncan, Ok and it would look impressive. Little Rock is not competing with us, they are competing with the other metro within their own backwater state, Fayetteville. 460k vs 700k but being outpaced. Within a decade Arkiesaws biggest concentration of population will reside within 45 minutes of Oklahoma and I don't blame them.

Just stating the fact.

In all honesty, discussing which downtown is the best between OKC, Tulsa, and Little Rock is like MSNBC and CNN arguing who has the most viewers.

You know, on second thought, I take offense to your comment - especially in light of the recent decision to tear down a couple of buildings. The IRS building added to the Robinson Street Wall and the Renassiance took up a surface parking lot. They DID change the urban fabric of downtown OKC.

I am not debating on who has more development projects going on, the purpose of this thread was to see who has best skyline at this point in time, not 5 years from now. I just believe people should give more credit to Little Rock's central business district. I live in Norman, and work in OKC, and have no ties to Little Rock whatsoever, but I give credit, when credit is due.

G.Walker - there is no doubt that Little Rock has a nice size downtown, especially for a city their size.

The River Market is a vibrant area of Little Rock in between the CBD and the Clinton Presidential Library. I was there just a few months ago and was impressed. It may be more of a concentrated nightlife district than what currently exists in OKC or Tulsa. It also might be the only nightlife district in LR while OKC/Tulsa have several others outside of downtown, not sure.

Most of the Bellvue projects are for Microsoft. I know because our company was involved in almost all of them. The highrise condo's are really upscale and occupied part time by top MS executives (they stay some nights they work late). If you guys think OKC downtown residences are expensive, you have no clue. When you all will pay what is paid there, then we can have a skyline like that too.

Gotta love Sioux City. One of my favorite places. Also home of Gateway computers, and many other things. That is just such a cool little town, and the topography is absolutely ideal for an urban setting..steep hills, Missouri River, dense forests, awesome Art Deco architecture. Kind of like a northern small town version of Tulsa.

yep, Bellevue really sprouted up in the last 5 years and it is solely due to Microsoft. I think Bellevue is a little bit smaller than Norman, though - depends upon where you draw the line. Bellevue is definitely the anchor city of the 'Seattle Eastside', which is home to MOST of Seattle's best known companies.

dt Bellevue isn't directly across the lake from dt Seattle. In fact, there is a ridge in the middle of the city of Seattle and residential that separate dt Seattle from the Lake and dt Bellevue. Also, at the foot of dt Bellevue on the lake is Medina, home to many of the richest people in the United States - including Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer, and the club.

so, keep in mind, dt Bellevue (like dt Seattle) sits on a hill so it looks a bit more impressive than reality. That's not to say it isn't good - heck, it is better than Tacoma - Washington's 2nd largest city; but let's not get too carried away in Bellevue isn't a competitor for OKC.

That said, it is a very nice suburban skyline, Clayton Missouri is another one (and older than Bellevue). I look forward to the day when Norman and/or Edmond/MWC can add some highrises above 20-storeys.

Regardless, there are smaller suburbs with better skylines than OKC, Little Rock and Tulsa. Bellevue still has a much broader and diverse skyline than OKC, as does Buckhead, ATL (lived outside of there for a year), and Sunny Isles, FL (population 15,000). Out of the 3 sure OKC has the most impressive and definitely will after Devon is completed.
