What I wonder about is ice occasionally building up on the ledges and then being blown off, which can be a life threating event, and this beauty has got ledges everyplace. Ice was mentioned as one of the reasons that Tower Verre had its skin changed from recessed to smooth.

Roseland Ballroom-replacing rental launches from $2,900/month
By Tanay Warerkar
Oct 3, 2018

Quote:
The Roseland Ballroom-replacing rental building designed by CetraRuddy Architects has now launched leasing, five years after the project was first announced. The 62-story building, located at 242 West 53rd Street, has a total of 426 apartments up for grabs with rents starting at $2,900/month.

ARO, as this building is known, features a mix of studios through three-bedroom homes. One-bedrooms start at $3,965/month, two-bedrooms start at $5,995/month, and three-bedrooms range anywhere between $7,995 to $17,500/month. ARO will also have a four-bedroom, duplex penthouse, but the price on that has to be unveiled. Some of the apartments will also have balconies.

Pic by me. Taken today. Can see Roseland in between the two towers in the background.

Roseland-Replacing ARO At 242 West 53rd Street Nears Full Completion In Midtown West

Quote:
With its bold white brick-pattern facade soaring over the former site of the Roseland Ballroom, ARO, aka 242 West 53rd Street, is currently the 27th tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City, and perhaps the closest on the list to the finish line. It is nearing completion, with occupancy set to begin anytime now. This new 738-foot, 62-story residential skyscraper is bringing 426 apartment units to Midtown West. Its 450,000 square feet is being designed by CetraRuddy Architecture, while Algin Management is the developer. Triumph Property Group is handling the leasing of the units.

Located between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, ARO is hard to miss given its striking facade, making it distinguishable from the surrounding all-glass and steel skyscrapers. The window pattern is composed of large, floor-to-ceiling windows separated by white, rectangular frames. They smoothly enclose all four sides and the rounded edges.

Anybody else find the large dark gaps in the paneling to be quite detrimental? Compare to the photoshop job in the photo further up the page.

Nope. I think they add texture to an otherwise very plain image. Not to say it's a bad design overall, it adds to the look.

Yeah, some of the joints don't seem to line up, especially on those balcony roofs, which makes it look a little cheap.

^I agree. This building is great. Similar shape to Aqua in Chicago, and better overall, in my opinion.
