The Capitol Event Center at The MAY Building is equipped with state-of-the-art Audio and Visual tools. The center features a full kitchen for catered events. Morning, afternoon, evening, and weekend events are welcome! The Capitol Event Center features a new one hundred and sixteen inch high-definition rear projector and screen, as well as a state-of-the-art Tannoy surround sound system. In addition to the projector and speakers, the main room also has two optional sixty-inch high definition flat screen monitors that are conveniently mounted on mobile carts for ease of use. The brand new Audio Visual system is controlled by top-of-the-line Savant integration. The Savant system is not only able to source inputs for computer presentations, but also features high definition cable, Blu-ray, and Apple TV, all of which are easily controlled through an iPad. Also located in the main room are two built-in cabinets for catering and an event registration location with newly installed granite countertops. The space also features new carpet and a new paint color scheme of pavestone and tri-corn black. The pristine restrooms have also been updated with new quartz countertops, as well as new lighting and plumbing fixtures.
While the ownership made a substantial investment in the main room, the main room renovation is only considered as, “Phase One”. Capitol Event Center and Sutter Capital Group have recently completed the renovation of the vacant floor above the main room of Capitol Event Center. The third floor renovation, completed February 2016, features the Executive Lounge, the Mohr Executive Suite and the Yoerk Executive suite. The suites are ideal breakout spaces for larger events, and perfect for separate small meetings or parties. The the Executive Lounge and the Mohr Executive Suite feature floor to ceiling views of the cathedral and plaza below. The Executive Lounge and Mohr Executive Suite renovation includes full Audio Visual Integration with the main room, including a permanent lounge TV to broadcast visual feeds from other rooms and ceiling mounted speakers to create the perfect ambiance for parties and events.
The building also includes 1029 K Street, the former site of Pyramid Alehouse. Sutter Capital Group, a locally-owned real estate investment firm that specializes in discovering and reviving the potential in Sacramento real estate, purchased the building in 2014. The purchase of the property included the highly respected CSAC Conference Center, located on the second floor. This space was utilized as a location for advocacy groups to hold conferences and instructional courses. The CSAC Conference Center became a well-known gathering place for the Capitol Crowd and beyond. Shortly after the purchase, Sutter Capital Group began updates to the Conference Center to include an aesthetic transformation as well as a complete update to the Audio Visual system. In July of 2015, Sutter Capital Group and its management company, Hammer Real Estate Group, invested significant capital to transform the room into what it is now known as - the Capitol Event Center.
