The Melar, that former "war zone" turned luxury Upper West Side development at 93rd and Broadway, finally has its very own website and pricing info. Studio rentals start from around $2,580 a month, while there's a high-floor two-bedroom with two bathrooms listed for more than three times that: $8,050. Also, please note that the panoramic views from the top are elegantly cropped to leave out Ariel territory, seven blocks north?although you can make out one of the cranes if you look closely. The first round of move-ins at this Rose Associates building will run August through January. Meanwhile, we're still left with that gnawing question: What exactly, if anything, is a melar? Our ignorance of certain foreign languages has hampered our Googling abilities.
