About Devon Tower
Devon World Headquarters Tower is a 50-story corporate skyscraper under construction in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Construction began October 6, 2009, and is expected to be completed in 2012. The tower is located next to the historic Colcord Hotel, which Devon currently owns, on Sheridan Avenue between Hudson and Robinson Avenues. The office tower, a six-story rotunda and a six-story podium structure will amass over 1,800,000 square feet (167,000 m) and are estimated to cost $750 million. When completed, it is expected to be the tallest building in Oklahoma, and among the tallest in the United States. It will serve as the northern anchor of Oklahoma City's aggressive Core to Shore downtown redevelopment project, underwritten by a $777 million sales tax approved by voters in 2009. Devon World Headquarters LLC, a subsidiary of Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy Corporation, is building the new headquarters skyscraper to replace their existing building, Mid America Tower, as well as other space the company is leasing in a number of office towers in the central business district.
