HOK is designing the second phase of the new Texas Facilities Commission Capitol Complex in downtown Austin. The project is reimagining the Capitol Complex while improving operational efficiencies for state agencies and consolidating leased space.
HOK’s design includes two new state office buildings (a 360,000-sq.-ft., 10-story building and a 165,000-sq.-ft. five-story building) as well as an extension of the pedestrian mall and surface and underground parking for 2,550 vehicles.
The workspace in the new office buildings will be modern, efficient and flexible. Floor-to-ceiling windows will flood the space with daylight, supporting the health and wellness of occupants while embodying the welcoming spirit of Texans.
The buildings will incorporate the latest security and protective measures while prioritizing interaction with the extended pedestrian mall.
As the gateway into the Capitol Complex, the pedestrian mall will include lush landscaping and green space for public gatherings, tourists, community festivals and events.
The design of the buildings and pedestrian mall will complement the neighboring historically significant buildings and civic spaces.
The project will be complete in 2025.
