Was this project ever posted, here? I don't seem to recall this.

Construction to begin this month on Ann Arbor's new 'ArborBLU' high-rise

The development team behind a 13-story high-rise apartment building approved for Ann Arbor’s South University Avenue plans to break ground this month.

Minnesota-based Opus Group and Pizza House restaurant owner Dennis Tice hope to finish construction on ArborBLU in time for the University of Michigan’s 2015 fall term.

A new website for ArborBLU markets the building’s 123 apartment units as U-M’s “newest luxury student housing.” Pricing structures aren’t listed on the website.

Ann Arbor City Council approved plans for ArborBLU in January. The project involves demolishing two buildings and constructing an addition adjacent to and over Pizza House restaurant at 618 Church St. that will extend south to Willard Street.

ArborBLU’s apartment units range from 490 square feet to 1,100 square feet. There is a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units.
