OKLAHOMA CITY—Scot Matteson's team came before this city's planning commission last week seeking to tweak a development he plans to build in a parking lot hard up against a railroad track and wrapped around two sides of a U-Haul storage facility.

Instead of capping the buildings at the Boardwalk at Bricktown at 345 feet, he's now thinking one should top out at 1,907—more than twice the height of the tallest building in town, and the biggest in the U.S.

Why?  I see no reason for this.

Tall buildings are for where it is crowded and land costs are high.
