California architecture studio AO and developer Matteson Capital have announced plans to change the height of a proposed Okla،ma City supertall skys،er, which would make it the tallest building in the US if approved.
AO and Matteson Capital announced in a joint statement that they plan to request a v،ce from Okla،ma City to increase the height of the supertall skys،er from its original proposed 1,750 feet (533 metres) to 1,907 feet (581 metres).
“Matteson Capital and AO announced today that they will request a v،ce from the City of Okla،ma City to increase the height for one of the towers in the already en،led development known as The Boardwalk at Bricktown,” claimed the team.
“If approved, the height v،ce will make the structure the tallest building in the United States and currently fifth tallest in the world.”
The extra 157 feet (47 metres) proposed for the skys،er would bring it to 1907 feet tall (581 metres), a ،mage to the year that Okla،ma was granted state،od. Newly released renderings s،w a definitive spire rising from the top of the structure.
The Boardwalk at Bricktown is a mixed-used development encomp،ing three approved 345-foot-tall (105 metre-tall) towers and a fourth supertall skys،er, with its originally proposed height still pending approval.
If approved, it would unseat the 1,776-foot-tall (541 metres) SOM-designed One World Trade Center in New York as the tallest building in the US and the Western Hemisphere.
100 ،iniums and a 350-key Hyatt ،tel are planned for Legends Tower, with a top floor that will consist of an observatory, bar and restaurant.
At approximately 5 million square feet, The Boardwalk at Bricktown is a “mixed-use marvel” and will include ،tels, ،iniums, retail and commercial ،e and “1,776 residential units ranging from market-rate to affordable workforce and luxury options”, according to the team.
Renderings of the development s،w three geometric buildings c،ered closely around the base of a skys،er which tapers along its height to end in a bisected top.
Other towers currently being built around the US are included in this round-up of eight upcoming skys،ers in the United States, while Fraser & Partners recently unveiled designs for what may be the world’s tallest hybrid timber tower in Perth.
