It looks like Trevor Noah’s $15,000 rental at Stella Tower was just a space for him to kill time while waiting to move upstairs into a $10 million penthouse. The Journal reports that Noah closed today on the top-floor duplex apartment that spans the 17th and 18th floors of the 1927 Ralph Walker-designed skyscraper. In all, the star’s new spacious abode measures 3,600 square feet and comes encircled by a large, 930-square-foot terrace with sweeping views of the city.
Fresh into his second year as host of “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah is treating himself to some iconic New York real estate. The Post reports that the South African comedian is renting a $15,000 a month bachelor pad at Stella Tower, the Ralph Walker condo conversion in Hell’s Kitchen.
The Art Deco tower was built in 1927 as a telephone building and was converted along with Chelsea’s Walker Tower in recent years by JDS Development Group. Noah’s new digs are a 1,700-square-foot, two-bedroom residence that has an impressive outdoor terrace. Located at 425 West 50th Street, it’s just a few blocks away from The Daily Show Studios at 52nd Street and Eleventh Avenue.
