Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Downtown Oklahoma City: Photo 41
Kerr-McGee's 1968 building was the city's first big post-war highrise. The sale of the company in 2006 to Houston-based Anadarko gave pause to the city's realtors and office-building owners. Even before the announcement, downtown had about a 25% vacancy rate, and nobody relished the thought of another half-million feet on the market. Rising energy prices came to the rescue, however, and in 2008 SandRidge Energy bought the building for $25 million and began renovating the building. SandRidge had 3 employees in Oklahoma City in 2006; two years later, it had 350.
