The Devon Energy Center is a 50-story corporate skyscraper in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and is tied with Park Tower in Chicago as the 47th tallest building in the United States. Construction began October 6, 2009, and was completed in October 2012. The tower is located next to the historic Colcord Hotel, which Devon currently owns, on Sheridan Avenue between Hudson and Robinson Avenues.Devon Energy Center is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Oklahoma City Edition.
The office tower, a six-story rotunda, and a six-story podium structure comprise more than 1800000sqft and was initially estimated to cost $750 million; however, the first formal appraisal of the tower and complex came in at only $707.9 million. It serves as the northern anchor of Oklahoma City's aggressive Core to Shore downtown redevelopment project.
Devon World Headquarters LLC, a subsidiary of Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy Corporation, built the new skyscraper to replace their existing corporate office, which was located inside Mid America Tower, as well as other space the company were leasing in a number of office buildings in the central business district.
The Devon Energy Center was originally planned to be 54 stories and 925ft tall. However, subsequent space planning revisions—including a decision to locate the data center to a separate facility for security reasons—resulted in a reduced height to 850ft, including 50 stories.
Site preparation and demolition began October 6, 2009. The Holder Construction Company served as primary general contractor, and Flintco, Inc. the minority partner in the joint venture.
Devon Energy Center Reviews
There is a wonderful restaurant on the top floor with out standing food. The view is fabulous day and night. more »
This building is spectacular from the outside... but wait til you get in! Just take a great big breath before you walk into the atrium... don't accidentally sit on the fountain. more »
