California architecture studio AO and developer Matteson Capital have recently revealed their intentions to modify the height of a proposed skyscraper in Oklahoma City. If the changes are approved, this ambitious project would surpass all other buildings in the United States, becoming the tallest one in the country.
AO and Matteson Capital have issued a joint statement revealing their intention to seek a variance from Oklahoma City. This variance would allow them to raise the height of their supertall skyscraper from the initially proposed 1,750 feet (533 meters) to an impressive 1,907 feet (581 meters).
The team claimed today that Matteson Capital and AO will be seeking a variance from the City of Oklahoma City. This variance is intended to raise the height of one of the towers in the development known as The Boardwalk at Bricktown, which has already been entitled. If the height variance is approved, the structure will become the tallest building in the United States and the fifth tallest in the world.
The proposed addition of an extra 157 feet (47 metres) to the skyscraper would result in a towering height of 1907 feet (581 metres), paying tribute to the significant year when Oklahoma was granted statehood. Renderings have been released, revealing a prominent spire that extends from the pinnacle of the building.
A mixed-used development known as The Boardwalk at Bricktown is currently underway. The project includes three towers that have been approved to reach a height of 345 feet (105 meters). Additionally, there is a fourth supertall skyscraper that is still awaiting approval for its proposed height.
If given the green light, this building would surpass the height of the iconic One World Trade Center in New York, which currently stands at 1,776 feet (541 meters). If this happens, it would become the tallest building in the United States and the entire Western Hemisphere.
A new development is in the works for Legends Tower, which will include 100 condominiums and a 350-key Hyatt hotel. The top floor of the tower is set to feature an observatory, bar, and restaurant, offering stunning views to visitors.
The Boardwalk at Bricktown, spanning an impressive 5 million square feet, is set to become a mixed-use marvel. This expansive development will feature a range of amenities, including hotels, condominiums, retail and commercial space. The team behind the project has revealed that it will offer a total of 1,776 residential units, catering to a diverse range of needs and budgets, with options ranging from market-rate to affordable workforce and luxury accommodations.
Renderings of the development depict a cluster of three geometric buildings positioned closely together at the base of a towering skyscraper. The skyscraper gradually narrows as it ascends, culminating in a distinctive bisected top.
Several new skyscrapers are currently under construction in the United States, and we have compiled a round-up of eight of them. Additionally, Fraser & Partners has recently revealed designs for a potentially record-breaking hybrid timber tower in Perth.
