A tour of the LeVeque Tower last summer revealed plenty of work still to be done on the residential units in the upper floors of the historic building.

This summer is a different story, with over 80 percent of the building’s 69 apartments occupied and the final finishes being put on eight for-sale condominiums on floors 34 through 37.

Those condos, being marketed as Leveque Tower Residences, are priced from $549,000 to $1,299,000. The smaller units, all with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, clock in at around 1,100 square feet while the larger units are all over 2,000 square feet and span two floors.

One is already in contract, and interest is high in the remaining units, said Lauren Smith of Kaufman Development, who led Columbus Underground through a handful of the residences on a recent tour.

Smith explained that the 38th floor will be used for storage units, and the units above that “are held by private owners.”

Property records show that the very top of the building is divided into four units, with one residence spanning the 39th and 40th floors, another taking up floors 41 and 42, and two single-floor units on the 43rd and 44th floors.

The apartments in the building occupy floors 19 through 33 and range from smaller one-bedrooms to larger, two-bedroom units that clock in at over 1,600 square feet. Rents range from around $1,400 to $2,800 a month. The leasing site for the apartments shows lists only six units as currently available.

Hotel LeVeque, with its 149 rooms on floors five through ten, has been open since March, and a new second-floor restaurant, down the hall from the Keep, could be open as soon as August.

All visitors, residents, workers, and hotel guests that enter the LeVeque do so through a shared ground-floor lobby that began renovations in early 2012 and was completed in late 2013.
