OKLAHOMA CITY -- The wrecking ball is swinging in downtown Oklahoma City to prepare for Sandridge Energy's new headquarters.

Crews are tearing down the first of six buildings. The first to go is the old Kerr-McGee building at Robert S. Kerr and Robinson avenues. It served as Kerr-McGee's headquarters from the 50's through the 80's.

It's been empty for two decades.

Demolition of three buildings at that intersection will continue for three months.

When it's all finished the area will be turned into outdoor plazas for Sandridge.
