Nichols’ tower

The latest building block for Larry Nichols is chairing a new economic development nonprofit for OKC.

Tower trouble

Gazette staff
What do you do when you’re just slightly in trouble? We’re talking “ate the roommate’s leftovers without asking,” not like “ran over Grandma’s prized poodle.” Sheepishly hide in your room?

Devon celebrates topping out tower


News

Kelley Chambers
The Devon tower finally looks like the Devon tower. While still several months from completion, the steel frame of the building is in place – all the way to the top. Windows climb more than three-fourths of the way up the tower.

Thriller

Flame on!


Action

Rod Lott
I have no idea how South Korea was able to get away with not calling The Tower a remake of 1974’s The Towering Inferno. What's important is that it has; this is a terrific disaster epic that marries the gargantuan concepts of the Irwin Allen era with today’s technology.

Features

Angela Botzer
As you drive around the Oklahoma City metro area, in the corner of your eye, you spot a building that looks like a spaceship. A few blocks away, another structure resembling a flying saucer looms.

A tower in your honor


CFN

Gazette staff
Millennials, you did it again. Not only are you still mooching off your parents and not voting because you’re too busy volunteering with nonprofits, but you’ve also gone and forever altered the OKC skyline.
