Outside In

A Major Destination and Gathering Place

The most unique and recognizable feature of Capital Tower is its two-level ground floor area designated for one-of-a-kind retail and restaurants and broad stone steps with wooden platform that lead to the below ground plaza flooded with natural light. Much like Rome's famed Spanish Steps and Piazza di Spagna, which inspired the design, The Atrium 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 lingering or meeting with friends and colleagues, with a coffee bar providing refreshments among other retail establishments. A glass wall and abundant planting and trees bring the outdoors inside, and ample natural light.


Capitol Tower's unique two-level lobby area attracts abundant natural light, creating both a vibrant gathering place and an attractive point of entry to Houston's tunnels.
