Rising 62 stories in Manhattan’s Midtown West neighborhood, ARO, a new luxury rental tower, features a cantilevered design of twists and curves with a distinctive metal grid projecting from its sculptural glass form.

The building’s rounded corners give the 426 rental units unique layouts and views and allows light to penetrate deep into the rental units. Residences are offered in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom options and include floor-to-ceiling windows, oak floors, and nearly 10-foot ceilings. Kitchens feature quartz countertops, custom cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances while the bathrooms include Carrara marble floors, Dolomiti marble-tiled walls, glass-enclosed showers, and custom vanities.

ARO’s podium contains the building’s amenities (along with the rooftop), which occupy over 40,000 sf or indoor and outdoor space. The ARO Club is one of the building’s main amenities. It is a multi-floor indoor and outdoor amenity space that features three lounges: a sports lounge adjacent to fitness amenities, a lounge inspired by a traditional club setting, and a club/game room with billiards, ping pong, and high-top seating.
