SandRidge Center is a prominent skyscraper in downtown Oklahoma City's central business district. The tower has 30 floors and is 393 feet (120 m) tall, making it the sixth tallest building in Oklahoma City and the eleventh tallest in the state. It is the headquarters of gas production and exploration company SandRidge Energy Corporation. In January 2010, SandRidge announced a $100,000,000 renovation for the building and 4 other buildings to be called SandRidge Commons.[2]

History[edit]

Until 2008, the building was known as the Kerr-McGee Tower. The former oil and gas company Kerr-McGee Corporation constructed the building in 1971 and the tower served as its corporate headquarters. The Kerr-McGee building was sold to Chesapeake Energy in August, 2006 after Kerr-McGee Corp was acquired by Anadarko Petroleum. Chesapeake Energy then sold the building to SandRidge Energy in July, 2007.[3]

Architecture[edit]

The building received a "25 Year Award of Excellence" from the American Institute of Architects, Oklahoma Chapter, in November 1999.
