When it opens its doors in 2019, Skanska’s Capitol Tower will reach 35 stories into the downtown Houston skyline, offering up 775,000 square feet of Class-A office and retail space. Six and a half floors of the sustainable building, totalling 210,000 square feet, will be occupied by Bank of America.
“That was by far the most unique deal I worked on in 2017,” says Kristen Rabel, senior vice president of CBRE Houston. “It was exciting to work with a large tenant and get them to understand the vision of Capitol Tower.”
She, along with CBRE’s Warren Savery and Rima Soroka worked on the deal that ultimately triggered Skanska to kick off construction and bring Capitol Tower out of the ground.
