April Fool’s Day: Bridge Park Adding LeVeque Tower
The ever-expanding Bridge Park development in Dublin is getting a large new update during its next phase of construction. Representatives with developer Crawford Hoying and the City of Dublin jointly announced today that Bridge Park will soon be getting its very own LeVeque Tower.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have this new addition for Dublin residents,” said City Manager Dana McDaniel. “No longer will Dublinites need to travel to Downtown Columbus to take in the skyline views, as we bring our own version of this iconic architecture right into our own backyard.”
The location at Bridge Park was a no-brainer for a second LeVeque Tower, as the dense urban-style development has rapidly become known as a walkable mixed-use hotspot for the suburb.
“We’ve got our own PINS, our own Condado, our own 16-Bit,” said Bridge Park resident Cindy McMahon. “Once we have our own LeVeque, maybe our own Statehouse, and our own COSI or two, we’ll be pretty set and we’ll never leave Dublin ever again.”
The original LeVeque Tower was the fifth tallest building in the world upon its completion in 1927. The building took three years to construct, a process that should take half the time with modern advances in building technology, but will actually take twice as long due to increases in permits and paperwork.
Once completed, Bridge Park LeVeque will contain a mix of office, hotel and luxury apartment units, as well as its own Palace Theatre on the ground floor.
