A Major Destination and Gathering Place
The most distinctive and recognizable feature of Capitol Tower is its two-level ground floor area, designated for one-of-a-kind retail and restaurants, and broad stone steps with wooden platforms that lead to the belowground plaza flooded with natural light. Much like Rome's famed Spanish Steps and Piazza di Spagna, which inspired the design, the tunnel level at Capitol Tower will be a landmark and principal gathering place for Houstonians downtown. Throughout the plaza and on the stair platforms are tables for reflection or meeting with friends and colleagues, with a coffee bar providing refreshments. A glass wall and abundant planting and trees bring the outdoors inside along with ample natural light.
