A new Devon rendering
A new Devon Tower rendering came out today, on Pickard Chilton's website. Groundbreaking is still Oct 1. Contractor, if you hadn't heard, was recently chosen..it will be a collaboration of Atlanta-based Holder Construction, and locally-based Flintco. They will try and sub-let as many tasks as possible to local contractors, but a lot of smaller national firms will also end up being brought in.
The new rendering has a more real, detailed look..and doesn't look quite as tall. I think for a 925-ft tall skyscraper, it's quite broad. But I think it just shows that the reflective glass merely reflects the sky, on days where it's bright and clear skies, the tower will have a much lighter look, whereas surrounded by darker skies, the tower will have a darker, more conservative look.
The 440-ft tall Oklahoma Tower is completely hidden behind the new monolithic skyscraper, when viewed from the south.
