OKLAHOMA CITY Gov. Mary Fallin and Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett are among dozens of dignitaries who helped to officially dedicate the Devon Tower, the state's tallest building.
The nearly 850-foot Devon Tower has been open for several months, but Tuesday's invitation-only commemoration ceremony included more than 300 dignitaries and special guests. Devon Energy Corp.'s Executive Chairman and company co-founder Larry Nichols presided over the ceremony.
The 1.8 million-square-foot complex in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City is the corporate headquarters for Devon an independent oil and natural gas production company. An estimated 2,200 employees and contractors report to work daily at the 50-story facility.
The complex includes a 285-seat auditorium, a park, two restaurants, a coffee shop and the tower.
