Peek inside the Devon Tower | News
OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Devon Tower reached its final height a few weeks ago. While it has been easy to see the outside of the building taking shape, it has been mostly up to the imagination to see the inside, that is until now.
Nearly 1,300 workers are there everyday, putting up walls and framing some areas.
While a large portion of the building is still considered a hard hat area, there are actually floors that appear to be completed.
Gavin Kalley, with Holder Flintco, says, "Obviously, we're in all stages of construction down to the seventh floor where furniture is and we are about move-in ready."
Conference rooms on the seventh floor are getting final wiring, community spaces are complete as are some of the offices.
Many of the offices come with incredible views over the city.
The Rotunda is an area that will be a public space.
Looking up there's a lot of work to be done, but it's quickly coming together.
It is exciting for Devon's Executive Chairman Larry Nichols to see the building coming together because it means soon his employees will all be in one space.
Nichols says, "We're now in five or six buildings scattered all over downtown."
By March, they'll begin moving in, filling each of the offices over the following months.
By June or July of 2012, they expect to be fully moved into the tower.
The exterior construction is expected to wrap up in the next few weeks with those cranes on the outside coming down sometime in January.
