SACRAMENTO | Capitol Grand Tower | 294m | 70 fl | Canceled

Anyway, like I have said before, the NEW Capitol Grand rendering that is
nearly finished with the EIR process is 965' to the top of the spire. To the
top of the structure is 771' and the spire on top rises up 194' to the final
height of 965'. To meet parking requirements with the city the tower has
7 of above ground parking and 6 below. The below grade parking would go
down 75' and have slurry walls of 3 feet thick surrounding the hole.

My only real complaint at this point is the look of the base at the street
level. It has a bunker quality about it... could use a little work.

The Tower would use 5 different types of stone, 2 different types of glass,
2 different types of metal and 3 different types of concrete. I think that
pretty impressive for a tower of this size.

The big question... will it be built???

looks good, but i think it could be a bit better. But still, it will dramatically change their skyline, which is good

Isn't there a height restriction due to how close the airport is to downtown?

^Sac Airport isn't close to downtown, it's 10 miles up northwest on Interstate 5.

This thing would really stick out! Sac town skyline is fairly small and i believe the tallest is around 130m.

Yea there is no way in hell this is gonna happen. I don't even think the tallest building in Sacramento reaches a 130 meters. I would be surprised if it did. Anyway, it really looks like this project has been cancelled.

Canceled projects seem to happen a lot to Sacramento, Salt Lake, and Boise.
