Thread: LeVeque Tower - Columbus, Ohio

  1. #1

    Default LeVeque Tower - Columbus, Ohio

    Can anyone tell me what building this is and who the gentleman might be. The Architect I assume?

    The photograph is signed, and appears to say, ..... "To Jack, with my best regards.... Dan...." (or Don. Can't make out the last name).

    Date on the back says it was framed Dec. 1964 by "Hudson's" pictures, picture framing.

    Many thanks.

    Not NYC. Looks like some Mid-western city or Ohio.
    Therefore, the building is irrelevent.

    Thank you so much!....... I'm way off, but what a treat browsing the photos and info at this forum. Amazing buildings, amazing people. Cheers to New York and New Yorkers.

    this building's tower reminds me a lot of the former AIG headquarters on Pine street in the financial district

    Wow! That building is absolutely drop dead gorgeous. I can't believe I never even knew it existed. It'd put it right up there with the Chrysler Building and American Radiator Building.

    The architect of the LeVeque Tower (1927; 47 stories, 555.5') was C. Howard Crane, perhaps best known for grand movie palaces and theaters (he designed over 250 of them -- including the August Wilson Theater from 1925 on West 52nd Street).

    Stunning building.

    Thankfully, the amazing detailing isn't all at the top.
