A static random access memory (SRAM) cell having increased cell capacitance at the storage nodes utilizes a capacitive structure. The capacitive structure includes a dielectric material between polysilicon conductive lines and tungsten local interconnects. The polysilicon plates are each connected to drains of lateral transistors associated with the SRAM cell. A dielectric material such as silicon dioxide may be deposited between the local interconnect and polysilicon conductive lines. The capacitor structures are provided between first and second N-channel pull down transistors associated with the SRAM cell.
