Recently I had the incredible opportunity to take aerial photographs of downtown Oklahoma City, including the Devon Energy Tower and Oklahoma State Capitol. To license or buy prints of any of these images, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Devon Tower was designed by the brilliant architects at Pickard Chilton and is truly awe-inspiring. This project was personally meaningful to me and my husband because we moved to OKC in 2010 because of the Devon Tower construction. Nathan works for the general contractor, Holder Construction, that is building the tower in joint venture with Oklahoma-based contractor FlintCo.
I have Tony Benear to thank for this opportunity. Tony is married to my friend Missy who works at Keystone Adventure School and Farm. Tony and Missy are Grant‘s parents. Tony bought the flight at auction during Keystone’s fall fundraiser, then invited me to come along to take photos.
Charles Amis was our pilot. Charlie is a weekend warrior pilot, flying for pleasure. He generously donated his time, fuel, and airplane to this project. Thank you, Charlie!
Oklahoma City is undergoing a major transformation. I can’t wait to see this place in 1, 5, 20 years!
The rotunda lobby, part of the larger podium, has a glass roof, providing a dizzying view all the way to the top of the 52 story tower. The lobby is open to the public and features a delicious cafe, Nebu, that is also open to the public. OKC residents should check it out! It’s worth the trip.
Nathan and I have enjoyed life here in OKC. And, although our time here is short since the tower is almost complete, I know that someday, Nathan and I will be driving by on I-40 on a long road trip with our annoyed children and point at the tower and say “Your daddy helped build that.” Pretty cool, right? I am very proud of Nathan and all of his co-workers. 🙂
