Expansive Pre-War Architecture Meets Stylish and Modern Living

By

A rare opportunity to own a one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom covering an expansive foot print of 1,227 sq. ft. This Hudson river facing, meticulously designed and executed unit boasts 13-foot ceilings, giving a loft-like feel. There is a large walk-in California Closet, beveled hand-laid oak floors throughout, central multi-zoned HVAC system, and a washer-and-dryer unit.

Stella Tower, originally designed in 1927 by Art Deco architect Ralph Walker, became one of Hell's Kitchen newest boutique luxury buildings four years ago after its conversion to residential. Ralph Walker was one of New York's most successful and prolific architects and a master of modern ornament.

Praised as "the only other honest architect in America" by Frank Lloyd Wright, Walker shaped New York's skyline during the Roaring Twenties, from the iconic Barclay-Vesey Telephone Building at 140 West Street to the luxurious Irving Trust Building at One Wall Street in the heart of the city's financial district, and the newly transformed Walker Tower in Chelsea. Elegant amenities at Stella Tower provide residences with modern conveniences and ease: 24-hour attended lobby, fitness center, residents' lounge with pantry and bar, outdoor garden lounge, bicycle storage room and temperature controlled grocery storage. “Building is an art devoted to interpreting human needs.”-Ralph Walker
