Skanska’s Rusk St. Garage Is Getting Its Shine On To Match the Capitol Tower Next Door

Crews are now coating the garage on the corner of Travis and Rusk with strips of glass curtain wall similar to those seen on its much taller neighbor to the north, the Capitol Tower. While the 35-story office building got its exterior finish soon after topping out in April, the garage — built 2 years earlier — was left naked. It took over from the former Houston Club garage Skanska expanded and then demolished on the block in 2015.

Even after construction wrapped up, the new parking structure viewed below from Milam still looked mostly like this:


Soon, the only thing left to skin will be the garage’s rooftop, announced as the site of a private garden last year that’d be accessible from the neighboring tower’s 12th floor, its lowest office level.
