Oklahoma may soon replace NYC as home to the tallest building in the U.S.

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel.

Oklahoma may soon replace New York City as home to the tallest building in the U.S. Architects in Oklahoma City revealed plans to expand the construction of a future skyscraper called Legends Tower to a whopping height of 1,907 feet - an homage to the year Oklahoma officially became a state. If approved for construction, the OKC building would tower over New York's One World Trade Center.
