The tower will be directly north of the foundation’s main building in the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center complex.

When it’s completed, OMRF will seek gold certification from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Only one other building in Oklahoma — the Gatorade building in Pryor — has the certification.

Other green features will include a rain garden on the roof to prevent runoff pollution and insulate the building. Water consumption will be reduced by recycling condensation from the air conditioning system and by using native plants in landscaping.

Design details will be unveiled tonight at OMRF’s First Ladies’ Gala at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.
