LeVeque Tower to be Subject of New Documentary
Columbus Landmarks receives grant for LeVeque documentary
A Star is Born! Columbus Landmarks Foundation is proud to announce that the LeVeque Tower will soon be starring in her first major film. Production is under way, with a birth date arrival scheduled for fall 2010.
The Ohio Humanities Council recently announced that Columbus Landmarks Foundation– working with filmmaker, Seth Moherman—received a major media grant to document the story of Columbus’s major skyscraper, the LeVeque Tower, in “The Citadel: The Birth of the LeVeque Tower.” Built first as the American Insurance Union Citadel (or AIU Building), one of Columbus’s most beloved and certainly architecturally distinct buildings has a fascinating dichotomy of idealism and egotism, architectural hubris and down-to-earth drama.
