Ariel East topped out on Upper West Side
By Carter Horsley   |   From Archives Friday, July 28, 2006
Like the Empire State Building rising in isolated splendor in Midtown South, the recently topped-out, 37-story Ariel East residential condominium building dominates its immediate neighborhood and much of the Upper West Side.

The building, which will contain 64 apartments and was designed by Cetra/Ruddy Architects, is located mid-block between 99th and 100th Streets at 2638 Broadway.

It is one of several major developments now in construction for Extell Management. It is across from Ariel West, a 31-story, 73-unit condominium tower at 245 West 99th Street that is also known as 2633 Broadway. The photograph at the right was taken at 82nd Street and Amserdam Avenue.

Construction on Ariel West, which has been designed by Cook and Fox, is trailing somewhat behind Ariel East.

Ariel East has one-bedroom, two-bath apartments with about 1,551 square feet of space that are available for about $1,195,000, three-bedroom, three bath units on the 8th floor with 2,214 square feet of interior space plus a terrace that is available for $2,650,000. It also has a four-bedroom, 3 ? bath apartment on the 28 floor for $3,750,000 and a 4,130 square foot penthouse with a terrace with three bedrooms, and 3.5 baths for $6,795,000.
