It’s no secret that Ann Arbor is an attractive prospect for real estate developers looking to build everything from apartments to athletic facilities (e.g. the $200+ million football stadium renovation). Nowadays, it’s definitely not uncommon to hear townies talk about how much the city has changed over the years, but it may be tough to picture what the place looked like beforehand if you’re new to town.

Luckily the folks at RENTCafé have conveniently put this urban landscape evolution into visual perspective using Google Street View. Swipe across the images below to see how recent building developments have changed our city. For more background, read RENTCafé’s full story.
