Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Downtown Oklahoma City: Photo 43
Yawn. For years the tallest building in town, the BankFirst Tower has had many names. It opened in 1971 as the Liberty Bank Tower. Liberty Real Estate sold it in 2000 to W.E. Simon of Los Angeles for $14 million. The tower then operated as the First Interstate Tower and later as the Chase Tower. In 2004, Simon sold the building for $28 million to Cotter Tower, a San Antonio partnership led by James Cotter. Devon Energy leased a large part of the building, which became a problem after Devon moved out and into its own new building. Chase moved out, too. Result: the occupancy rate declined to about 65 percent by 2017. The building sold in 2018 to become BankFirst. In any case, the views from the upper floors are spectacular, especially when enjoyed from the men's rooms, where windows provide not only a fine view but a curiously unsettling sensation of micturating from the heavens.
