In 2016 Texas introduced a Capitol Complex Master Plan to reimagine the state’s capitol campus as a destination that would celebrate the Capitol building and centralize all state agencies—characterized by grand civic spaces, shaded pedestrian-friendly streets, and connections to the surrounding community.
White Construction Company (WCC) was selected to construct a five-level underground parking structure, the top of which will become a portion of the new pedestrian-oriented Texas Mall. The deepest portion of the garage is 70’ below finish grade. The structure is cast-in-place concrete with blindside waterproofing. The 750,000-square-foot garage will provide 2,261 parking spaces.
WCC is, simultaneously and as a separate project, constructing the first of the two new office buildings in the complex.
