ARO is named for Albert Ginsberg, the founder of Algin Management — as well as the famous Manhattan music-staple the Roseland Ballroom, which the new building has replaced. “ARO” is created by combining the first letter of his name, A, with RO for “Roseland.”
Designed by CetraRuddy, ARO houses a total of 426 units, ranging in size from 373 square feet to 931 square feet in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans.
The modern residences boast floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings and oak flooring. Select units include a private terrace. The building will be capped by a duplex-penthouse unit.
The building features over 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a golf simulator, indoor and outdoor rooftop pools, and three different clubs — including a SKY club on the roof.
Studios start at $2,800, one-bedrooms at $3,695, and two-bedrooms at $5,995, according to an update on aro.nyc.
ARO is slated for completion in fall or winter 2018.
