● ALGIN MANAGEMENT
ARO makes its big entrance to market
Leasing has begun at ARO, a new 62-story, 426-unit luxury rental tower developed by Algin Management, designed by CetraRuddy Architecture, and located at 242 West 53rd Street, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, in Midtown West.
The award-winning tower, which rises on the former site of the Roseland Ballroom, features a cantilevered design of fluid twists and curves.
“From its initial design stage years ago, Algin Management sought to create a truly special addition to the New York skyline,” said Sean Paroff of Algin Management.
“Without limitation, we always sought, through its stand-out architecture and alluring interior and amenity spaces, to set a new boundary for what a luxury building can accomplish. We are pleased to see that the response so far, with more than 1,800 inquiries prior to the opening of the leasing center, mirrors our excitement about this important project.”
ARO has a 24/7 attended lobby with a full-service concierge.
More than 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities span multiple floors, as well as the rooftop. They include:
The ARO Club, a multi-floor indoor and outdoor amenity space complete with three unique lounges;
A sports lounge and another lounge, inspired by a traditional club setting, and a club/game room with billiards and ping pongis also part of the ARO Club.
Multiple landscaped outdoor terraces feature landscape design by Balmori Associates. All spaces will be WiFi-enabled.
There is an indoor pool, chef’s kitchen, private dining room, fitness center, half-basketball court, and golf simulator.
And the ARO Sky Club will feature the building’s fourth lounge, a glass-enclosed rooftop Sky Lounge, and an outdoor pool.
The building’s underground garage, also attended 24/7, offers direct access into ARO. The building features studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences, some with balconies.
Additionally, ARO will have two duplexes, including a three-bedroom duplex residence and one four-bedroom duplex penthouse.
Currently, studios are priced from $2,900 per month and three-bedrooms are priced from $7,995 to more than $17,500 per month.
