A private firm says it will convert the top 24 floors of Leveque Tower at Broad and Front streets into condos and apartments. Kaufman Development announced plans for 78 residential units.
Developer Brett Kaufman says his firm thinks there's continued demand for high-end downtown housing
"We're big believers that Columbus' downtown urban experience is really just getting started. I believe there's a huge demand for people to want to continue to be part of the revitalization of our city," says Kaufman
Kaufman declined to give specific financial information on conversion plans.
"We're still early on in the process and we'll see where we are when we come to market," adds Kaufman "It'll be a real high-end and unique special offering."
LeVeque was built in 1927 and for decades remained the lone high rise building on the Columbus skyline. Occupancy for the condos and apartments will start next spring.
