The Devon Tower is by far the newest and most prominent building in all of Oklahoma City. It is now a major staple in Oklahoman postcards, and in any picture of an Oklahoman sunset from the city. Designed and built by Pickard and Chilton, it is the largest building to earn a gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating west of the Mississippi and is an enjoyable workspace for hundreds of employees. The construction of such an iconic tower was not hindered by pricey materials or any other issues. The Devon Energy Center uses about 41% less water than most buildings its size, and the use of natural light has greatly reduced the electricity bill. The interior of the tower is sleek and futuristic, with outstanding use of glass paneling and indoor vegetation to enhance nature’s presence in our busy worklives. Overall, it is an absolutely phenomenal structure with amazing details and attention to the environment.
