Opus Time Lapse: ArborBLU January 2015 Construction Update

More about this project

​Construction on ArborBLU, a luxury student housing building near the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich., began last summer with completion scheduled before the start of the fall 2015 semester.

Recently, the superstructure’s steel tie ins to the existing Pizza House restaurant were completed. Level one and two north steel columns and beams are erected along with some of the columns through level two. This month, additional support on the restaurant’s roof will be completed.

Throughout this month, more work will continue on the superstructure erection. Once the basement is complete, the south half of the building, which does not sit on top of the restaurant, will begin. It will catch up with the north side around the sixth level. Once complete, the building will boast 13 stories.
