Filmmaker Frank Capra once famously said, “Don’t follow trends, start trends.” Rock legend David Bowie expressed this idea another way: “Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming.” For these two iconoclasts, breaking the mold was their default setting; they were born to push their respective art forms in new directions.
But that’s not an easy task by any means. Many artists, designers, and creators are content to stay in their lanes and ride a predetermined trajectory into the sunset. So, when something truly new pops up, when a unique creation appears in a theater, or on an album, on a runway, or, in this case, in the New York City skyline, it should be celebrated. The Midtown West rentals at ARO have taken luxury living in Manhattan to another level entirely.
Ever wonder what the ocean would look like if you could stack it vertically and fill it with spacious, light-filled apartments? ARO’s cantilevered design enables the building to appear as if it bends and curves, giving it a wavelike appearance. The undulating white metal framing, which borders floor-to-ceiling windows and pulses outward at the corners to create large terraces, gives the entire structure a vibrant energy that cannot be ignored. There aren’t any other buildings in the city quite like it.
The elegantly innovative and appealing qualities of the facade are exquisitely reflected in the building’s interior details. One would be hard-pressed to find homes with more natural light than the apartments at ARO—they are absolutely flooded with it thanks to their floor-to-ceiling windows. And through those windows, the views extend for miles over the skyline, through Central Park and out onto the Hudson River. ARO’s residences are generously sized and were designed with intuitive, open floor plans. They feature rich oak flooring, high-end chef’s kitchens with Caesarstone countertops, and custom cabinetry. The luxury extends to the bathrooms with their Carrara marble floors and Dolomiti marble-tiled walls and custom vanities. There is an overall level of refinement that is rarely seen in apartment design—every inch of these premium living spaces was meticulously considered.
Outside of the residences, you will find 40,000 (yes, 40,000) square feet of amenities. Within the ARO Club, there’s a lush, landscaped garden terrace, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a yoga studio, a basketball court, saunas, an indoor pool, and a children’s playroom. There’s also the ARO Sky Club, stationed on the roof of the building, which has its own lounge and an outdoor pool that rivals some of the most impressive rooftop pools in the city. A resident can practice yoga in the zen-like studio or shoot hoops for a bit in the basketball court, and then head to the roof with a book to relax and enjoy north, south, and western views.
ARO—offering peerless architectural design, world-class interior details, and ample amenities—seems primed to redefine luxury real estate in Manhattan through its game-changing achievements. Find your perfect apartment by visiting our availabilities page, or schedule a visit to tour ARO today.
