Join the CTBUH New York "Future Leaders" Committee for a tour of ARO, a 59-story residential tower in midtown Manhattan.

The building’s massing responds to various site and zoning constraints, revealing solutions that maximize the residential adaptability of the building through increased floor area, direct outdoor access and amplified views. Shaping of the form reflects changes in unit mixes, with larger units occupying the top of the building and smaller units occupying the bottom. Building amenities, located within the podium, take on a vertical hierarchy by locating the various amenities from short to tall around the tower, resulting in a series of cascading layers on the roofs above each space.

Attendees will have the option to participate in one of three identical tours with representatives from CetraRuddy Architects and BuroHappold Engineering. Groups will arrive for tours at 3:00 p.m., 3:45 p.m., and 4:15 p.m.

Please note, close-toed shoes with flat rubber heels are required. Hardhats will be provided.
