    An air vent. Allows fresh air to enter the building's circulation systems.

    This subject should be the banner at the top of every page. It should read:

    ****WARNING****

    Oklahoma Tower's Black Rectangle is an Air Vent

    LOL

    I only say this because you see a question on this every year if not more. It's all good that you're asking. I just find it funny cause I hate that it's there too!

    Thank goodness we have you, metro, to always refer those people to earlier threads on the same subject.

    What they should do is just paint it with lettering....something to the effect of "this is a vent"

    Paint a mural on the side of the building making it look like a cigarette smoker exhaling. It worked at Times Square.

    See, I always thought that the black spot at the top of Oklahoma Tower was just the corporate black hole where all of this city's good ideas go..

    why can't they just paint the hole the same colour as the building - so it don;t look so much like a hole in the tower.

    On the same thought, I do hope Beacon Club will move back to FNC. It just isn't Beacon Club without the Beacon and decor of the original space. ....

    It may have been at one time but whatever they are exhausting through the vent may have discolored it.

    Cover it up. They would have to engineer it in a way that retains unimpeded airflow.

    using a screen, paint the screen. ...

    Im sure you've seen them on metro busses, where the whole bus looks like a painted ad, but from the inside you can still see out the windows.
