Sales have launched at Hell's Kitchen's much-anticipated Stella Tower. Of the Art Deco-style converted telcom building's 51 apartments, two are officially on the market: a 1,150-square-foot, 1BR, 1.5BA home going for $1.9 million, and a 1,727-square-foot 2BR, 2.5BA home asking $4.35 million. Despite its slightly less exclusive air compared to its sibling building—owing mostly to the tower's Hell's Kitchen location, where the median price per square foot is a mere $1,110—Stella comes with all the bells and whistles of an esteemed, modern classic tower, from 10- to nearly 14-foot-high ceilings, hand-laid oak flooring, custom solid oak doors, custom kitchen cabinetry, oversized tilt-and-turn-windows, and black marble, herringbone flooring in the bathrooms.
New visual: a terrace belonging to one of the building's four penthouses was scouted on the building's official website this morning, but has since been taken down. Each penthouse comes with at least one wood burning fireplace, and some penthouses have outdoor space. Which is yet unclear. Rumor has it that the building's penthouses will top out at $14 million.
A tipster passed along one floorplan, for unit 15E, a 3BR/3.5BA priced at $5.6 million. While we've run this rendering before, the unit has yet to broach the market.
In addition to the sales launch, Stella has officially declared their web presence with an alluring site. The project was developed by JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group. CetraRuddy handled the conversion.
