The building and street improvements are being built by the Devon Energy Corporation, which is one of the nation's largest independent energy companies. Their new headquarters will be a 50-story skyscraper.

"Devon's building, however, is not the only construction project in Oklahoma City. In December, residents approved a $777 million tax package for a 70-acre central park, convention center, streetcar system, aquatic centers, boating facilities and trails that will be built over the next nine years.

A $140 million makeover of downtown, including new sidewalks, bicycle lanes and two-way streets, also starts in May courtesy of Devon."
