Thanks for posting these pictures. I've never been to Tulsa, but always wondered what it looked like. I think I've heard it's a comparatively wealthy city. The quality of the architecture seems to demonstrate that. Oral Roberts University reminds me a bit of Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York.

I agree with you in that the downtown seemed rather dead when I was there. I will also agree with you in that there are several beautiful buildings that were built before 1950. Their downtown does have a lot of potential.

The Cityplex buildings are quite odd. I spent a lot of time in Tulsa when I was growing up because I have cousins that live there. I went back 3 years ago for the first time since I was a teenager and we stayed in the Marriott right across the street from Cityplex and ORU. I remember seeing the buildings when I was younger, but on my last visit I really noticed how big and oddly placed they are. They were built as a hospital and med school for the university, but are now repurposed as office space. I remember hearing not long ago that less than half of the complex is occupied and only a few of the lower floors of the 30 story tower are still in use. My last trip was an overnight visit for a wedding, so I didn't have time to venture downtown.

I went to Tulsa a couple of weeks ago. I only had about an hour there to take some photos:

Looks like it still has the feel of a well maintained post apocalyptic city. Not much life to it. Has so much potential to.
I remember standing in the plaza of the BoK tower when there, the city offices are in a glass tower to the north. The tower uses a robotic window washed, like a giant spinning squeegee on ropes. It was the only thing moving. Was so odd.

I have clients there and I've always thought Tulsa was a much better city than it's neighbor to the southwest.

Nice photos dangr.dave!
I'm surprised you didn't get a photo of the AT&T building which is a nice complement to our own!
