The controversial project, which is being built on Fifth Avenue just south of William Street and downtown, started demolition of seven houses in the Germantown neighborhood in November.
The 64,750-square-foot project consists of two identical apartment buildings with a surface parking lot in the middle.
With construction underway, developer Campus Village Communities has begun marketing the apartments for lease. The company has a marketing website, a leasing office at 339 E. Liberty St. in downtown Ann Arbor and a Craigslist ad posted for the apartments.
A six-bedroom, six-bathroom unit ranges in price from $1,000 to $1,200 per bedroom. A six bedroom, shared bathroom unit is $900 per bedroom. The Craigslist ad markets the bedrooms starting at $850.
Among the amenities: in-unit washer and dryer, granite countertops, in-unit game room with a pool table, fully furnished bedrooms, free wireless internet and satellite TV.
Landmark, a 14-story, 600 bedroom high-rise located on South University Avenue, has amenities such as tanning beds, a yoga studio, fitness center, movie theater and game room. Prices range from $975 to $1,745 per bedroom.
The 14-story Zaragon West, located on Thompson Street, has 199 bedrooms, with prices ranging from $1,100 to $1,650 per bedroom. Amenities include a fitness center, indoor parking and high-definition TVs.
Both high-rises began signing leases in October, and the developers told AnnArbor.com that units were filling up quickly at the time.
