After paying a generous $15k monthly rent for a lower unit at the Stella Tower in Hell’s Kitchen, The Daily Show anchor Trevor Noah decided to commit to the building and went ahead and paid a whopping $10 million for a penthouse in the art deco-style building.
Initially listed for $12,995,000, the never-lived-in-before 3,596-square-foot penthouse recently cut its asking down to $11,495 million before Trevor Noah made the $10 million offer — that, in layman’s terms, equals a 10% discount.
The Stella Tower penthouse comes with 3 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 1/2 bathrooms, and a generous terrace with killer NYC skyline views.
Among the penthouse’s most attractive features: an 29-foot-long open living room that connects to an eat-in kitchen deluxely fitted and kitted with furniture-grade cabinetry, polished concrete countertops, designer fixtures, and, natch, a full suite of sleek appliances; 2 guest bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms; and a sun-flooded den with a soaring 14-foot ceiling. Better yet, let’s peek inside:
Stella Tower — Gorgeous modern living in a historic building full of character
Designed in 1927 by pre-eminent Art Deco architect Ralph Walker — who named it after his wife — Stella Tower was converted into condos in 2014 by JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group in partnership with Starwood Capital Group.
Stella Tower’s ornamentation, handcrafted brick facade, entryway, terrazzo lobby floor, and remarkable crown have been carefully restored to reflect the brilliance of Ralph Walker’s masterpieces.
Now home to 51 upscale units, the pre-war building features energy efficient appliances, new building-wide mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, state-of-the-art safety systems, fob-controlled, high-speed, custom elevator cabs and new custom oversized tilt-and-turn windows.
In terms of amenities, Stella Tower residents enjoy a 24-hour attended lobby, a fitness center, residents’ lounge with pantry and bar, outdoor garden and lounge, bicycle storage room, and temperature-controlled grocery storage.
The added benefit: moving into Stella Tower now means you’ll have one of NYC’s funniest showmen as a neighbor.
