A block from Capitol Park, Book Tower is located at 1265 Washington Blvd. and is comprised of two connected structures – a 38-story tower and a 13-story block. Designed by architect Louis Kamper and originally completed in 1926, Book Tower was the tallest building in the city. Bedrock completed the restoration and redevelopment in 2022 transforming the historical landmark into a mixed-use property that includes residential, restaurants and bars, office, retail, and an event venue.
