Chase Tower, also known as Cotter Ranch Tower, is a signature skyscraper in Oklahoma City's central business district. Previously known as Liberty Tower (the name it had upon completion) and Bank One Tower, the building is now named Cotter Tower, after its owner, real estate holdings owner James Cotter of San Antonio, Texas. At 152.4 meters (500 feet), it is the tallest completed building in the city and the fifth tallest in the state of Oklahoma. Devon Tower currently under construction recently surpassed the height of Chase Tower so now it is the second tallest building.

History

Located at 100 North Broadway Avenue, the 36-floor skyscraper was completed in 1971 for Liberty National Bank and Trust Company, once one of Oklahoma City's largest banks. Liberty Bank was purchased by Bank One in 1997. After the bank's acquisition by Bank One, the tower displayed the Bank One logo. Today the tower presently displays the Chase logo as the bank holds an agreement to lease signage rights on the building.

The anchor of the USS Oklahoma, salvaged after the battleship was sunk at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, was located on the Park Avenue median between Chase Tower and the Skirvin Hilton Hotel until it was moved to its current location at 12th Street and Broadway. The USS Oklahoma was second in casualties only to the USS Arizona on the day of the attack.

7,437 interior lighting fixtures were upgraded in May 2001. The tower was acquired by Cotter Ranch Properties in 2004.
