Motivated by iodo platinum complexes assembled within a quadratic-prism lattice, Pt(C2H8N2)(C10H8N2)I] 4(NO3)8, we investigate the ground-state properties of a Peierls-Hubbard four-legged tube. Making a group-theoretical analysis, we systematically reveal a variety of valence arrangements, including half-metallic charge-density-wave states. Quantum and thermal phase competition is numerically demonstrated with particular emphasis on doping-induced successive insulator-to-metal transitions with conductivity increasing stepwise.
