Capitol Tower

Houston, Texas

Located in downtown Houston at the crossroad of all major underground tunnels, Capitol Tower is designed to redefine the pedestrian experience and create a dynamic downtown experience unique to Houston. Working closely with developer, Skanska, Gensler designed a two-level, open-air lobby that exposes the underground tunnel system and connects the street level to retail and dining. Framing the urban space of downtown, the high-performance, 33-story building affords a highly leasable floor plate and features a welcoming entry plaza and outdoor seating. Awarded LEED® 4v Platinum pre-certification, the building features daylight harvesting technology, a 40 percent parking reduction, tenant metering, alternative vehicle charging stations and a rainwater collecting system.
