Three pavilions for rowing (two of which are visible above), designed by OKC-based Elliott + Associates Architects, breathe new life into once-disused land along the Oklahoma River's northern bank. The newest and tallest, the five-story, steel-frame Chesapeake Finish Line Tower (above center), cantilevers over its concrete base, marking the official end point for races, while the Devon Boathouse (above right) is home to the Oklahoma City University rowing and kayaking teams. The boathouses have garnered national attention and elevated Oklahoma City's status as a world-class city for training and competition, says principal Rand Elliott.
