Best Downtown Building

Texas State Capitol

What other state can boast a pink capitol? Um, Texas-quarried, pink granite, that is. It's no accident that this landmark stands just a little bit taller than our nation's Capitol Building in D.C. Check her out from afar, and then move in for closer inspection: Everything from the inlaid floors to the grand wooden doors and windows and even the intricately designed door hinges are objects of incredible craftsmanship and beauty and worthy of close scrutiny. It's no wonder that this building is chosen as best downtown building so many years running.
