    6-story atrium. 54 story building, 925 ft. tower. Not sure how people are still getting the facts misconstrued. It's on Steve's blog for more info.

    You can see the tops of Oklahoma Tower and Chase Tower from Hwy. 9 as it goes over the hills just SW of Norman, about 25 miles from downtown. Downtown OKC is in the river valley so you can't see the skyline well from Moore/Norman because they are also in a river valley. So from Hwy. 9 this building will be clearly visible as you look to the north. The most dramatic angle will be coming into downtown on Broadway Extension/235.

    I'm really hoping for something similar to the atrium of the Time-Warner building in NYC.

    Sorry - but just because someone is building a 54 story building doesn't mean its all good news. Apparently Devon can buy off and do what they wish though...to me some of this isn't very.. "civic minded"

    I would hold off on all this alarm, hipster. There isn't even a full article yet. There may be a replacement city garage planned. There may be some very specific plans for the parking situation yet to be announced. It's awfully premature to get upset about a parking situation that has 4 years to get resolved.

    I'm guessing hipster parks there everyday?

    I use to work on Bruce Road in Norman and I could see Chase Tower from our parking lot on a clear day. However, the best view I think will be from I-40 West out near the Texas state line.

    Yes - but a lot of other people do as well - it may be the closest parking to Devon, but it is also closes to the Oklahoma Tower, Library, Park Harvey, County Courthouse - I realize that this may not be finalized but from Steve's comments, Nichols seems quite selfish in his comments and not considerate of others that are already using these facilities.

    Yeah its on OKC page. I got all of the facts put in and now when you click on Tall Buildings and then All Tall Buildings it is the first one. Before today is was burried on page 4 or 5 and was never seen. They don't really have a public message board.

    The rotunda with the viewing ramps is very, very similar to the Reichstadt in Berlin:



    And the pillars that go down into the reflecting pool are similar to the Chesapeake Boathouse.

    Very impressive. Size matters.

    Again, I'm sure it hasn't been overlooked that people actually park in that garage. There is a plan. This isn't the first time Nichols has mentioned using the garage. He's planned to buy it all along, so the city surely has already developed a plan.

    Then someone else can build a parking garage. Or, God forbid, we WALK a little.

    I can't even believe this...worried about parking in what was once a completely DEAD downtown. Don't worry; there are still plenty of dead, vacant lot areas in our once-forsaken downtown. You can park there.

    Right. When I looked, it was still buried. I'll check again.

    The City? Developed a plan? I wouldn't bet on it - that being said - to all who think I am a downer - I do think the building is beautiful - just think that they need to make sure that in the excitement over the new building, they don't forget current and nearby residents.

    I'm sure something can be worked out in the next 4 years.
