618 South Main, a high-end apartment community in downtown Ann Arbor, has pre-leased over one-third of the community since opening its doors two months ago. Located at the old site of Fox Tent and Awning, 618 South Main is located in the heart of the central business, retail and entertainment districts of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The 153,133-square foot, 164-unit building currently under construction, is slated to be fully leased by September with the first residents moving in August 1, 2015. The $41 million apartment development includes 59 studios, 74 one-bedroom units, and 31 two-bedroom units. 618 South Main offers studios starting at $1,385, one-bedroom from $1,730, and two-bedroom from $2,675 a month.
"The Habitat Company is thrilled about the success of the lease-up thus far. It's exciting to be a part of this development that offers residents a unique product with signature offerings in a great location," said Sheila Byrne, Executive Vice President of Property Management at The Habitat Company. "After a decade of managing assets in Ann Arbor, we were able to apply our market knowledge and best practices to successfully market this community and generate over 75 leases in two months, for this unique, environmentally friendly community."
Designed to meet LEED Silver standards, 618 South Main showcases
several high-end, environmentally friendly amenities, most notably
a unique rain garden. The rain that falls at 618 South Main will be
absorbed and infiltrated into a system of interconnected green
roofs and rain gardens. These rain gardens are made up of
plants and soils that soak up water, and, at the end of the
"treatment train," connect down to native sandy soils deep in the
existing soil profile. With the development of 618 South Main,
rain that falls on this site will be slowed, cooled and cleaned
through lush rain gardens. This approach turns storm water, which
can be a liability, into a valuable groundwater resource: good for
residents, the Ann Arbor community and for the environment.
