Rooftop Terrace/Event Space

Our rooftop terrace is available to all tenants and their guests. The spacious terrace will enable tenants to relax, connect, and take a breath of fresh air with views of the Capitol Building. The terrace opens up to the penthouse lounge with an operable, glass Nanawall system. The multi-use penthouse will allow tenants to use the space as a lounge, conference, and event space. Reservations for both the terrace and lounge can be made online through the Tenant Center on a first come first serve basis. They can be reserved separately or simultaneously. The terrace has a maximum occupancy of 183 persons and the lounge has a maximum occupancy of 178 persons.

Complimentary WIFI is available. The use of the rooftop is complimentary; however, charges may be incurred for cleaning, security, etc.

**Please be aware that our penthouses are now furnished. We suggest that a walkthrough is done prior to any events to ensure that arrangements are made for any adjustments that may be needed for the existing furniture. As usual all spaces must be returned to their original configuration/layout.
