Oklahoma City Council Approves Rezoning For Huge Tower

A supertall skyscraper is one step closer to reality in Oklahoma City.

City Council members voted 8-1 yesterday to approve rezoning for the Boardwalk at Bricktown project.

The 1,907 foot tall tower is part of the $1.5 billion project near Reno and Shields. If built, the skyscraper would be the tallest in the nation.

Ward 2 Councilman James Cooper was the only “no” vote on the rezoning request.

Developers hope to break ground on the project in summer 2024.

The ambitious development features a collection of three towers, each rising to 345 feet, and a fourth striking supertall tower, referred to as Legends Tower, that ascends to 1,907 feet, creating an impressive silhouette against the Oklahoma City skyline. The symbolic height honors the year that Oklahoma was admitted as the 46th state of the United States.

Spanning approximately 5 million square feet, the project is a mixed-use marvel, including a 480-key Dream Hotel by Hyatt with 85 residential serviced condominiums in the Dream Tower; an additional 350-key Hyatt hotel with 100 serviced condominiums in the Legends Tower; 1,776 residential units ranging from market-rate to affordable workforce and luxury options; and a vibrant retail and restaurant scene with over 110,000 square feet of space designated for commercial use, food and beverage, and a workforce development center for the community at the street and second levels.

The top floors of the supertall tower will consist of a public observatory, restaurant and bar where visitors will be able to enjoy the sweeping city views.
