Quantum Energy Partners has leased the top floor of Capitol Tower, a Class A office building downtown.
The Houston-based private equity and venture capital firm plans to move its headquarters into a 32,000-square-foot office at 800 Capitol in November 2019. The 35-story tower, being developed by Skanska USA, is now 33 percent leased halfway through construction.
"Our company was drawn to Capitol Tower's amenity-rich offerings, from the tunnel-level retail market to the SkyPark green roof open to tenants," Mike Denham, Quantum's CFO, said in a statement. "The convenience of the location and easy access to major highways, thoroughfares and mass transit will also allow our team to be more efficient while staying connected to all of our stakeholders.

When completed in 2019, Capitol Tower will offer 754,000 square feet of office space, a two-story atrium with more than 26,000 square feet of shops, and restaurant space in the tunnel level. About 90 percent of the offices will have skyline views, and tenants will have access to a fitness center and a food hall with fare from local chefs.
The LEED Platinum precertified office tower will use 25 percent less energy than its counterparts, according to Skanska.
The tower will boast a 50,000-gallon rainwater collection system for landscape irrigation and bathrooms; a bike storage room with lockers and showers; a facade that reduces solar heat; and district cooling for chilled water in the facility.
Skanska, which also developed the LEED Platinum West Memorial Place campus in the Energy Corridor, is also under construction on Spring Crossing, a Class A development with 850,000-square-feet of office space near The Woodlands....Read more
