The new owners of the Capitol Center are considering some changes to the state’s tallest building.

M&J Wilko of Chicago and Intercontinental Real Estate Corp. of Boston recently closed the purchase for $47.5 million, sources said.

Since then, representatives of the new owners have been meeting with occupants to discuss potential changes to the 25-story building, tenants said.

“To their credit, … they want to know what their tenants think,” said Matt Kennell, president and CEO of the City Center Partnership, which promotes and guides investment in the central business district.

Kennell said he urged the owners to rethink and redesign the lobby of the building — now a blank, opaque class and steel wall — to open it up to the street.

“It’s an opportunity to make the building work better with both Main and Gervais streets,” said Kennell, whose offices are housed in the building.
