Real estate developer, Matteson Capital, and architecture firm, Architects Orange (AO), are pursuing a height variance in Oklahoma City for The Boardwalk at Bricktown.

If approved, the development’s Legends Tower will stand as the tallest in the U.S. and fifth tallest globally, reaching 581 m to symbolize the year of Oklahoma’s admission as the 46th state.
