The most recognizable building in the Columbus skyline is the LeVeque tower. When it was completed in downtown Columbus in 1927 it was known as the AIU Citadel and was originally intended to house workers for the The American Insurance Union.

Over the years the tower has undergone several renovations and a name change, and after a recent $27 million renovation it will house a hotel, condos and apartment units. Join us with a panel of guests as we discuss the history of the LeVeque Tower and its newest renovations.
