Manhattan's historic Hell's Kitchen neighborhood borders the Hudson River and includes the area situated west of Eighth Avenue between 34th and 59th Streets. Also known as Clinton or Midtown West, Hell's Kitchen is home to an assortment of bars and restaurants which are within close proximity to major Broadway, as well as Off Broadway theater venues. A recent surge in new condominium developments in the area has transformed the enclave's reputation as bustling entertainment hub to that of luxe residential hot spot.
Located at 425 West 50th Street, Stella Tower was converted into 51 palatial condominium residences in 2014. In 1927 architect Ralph Walker designed the structure, which he named after his wife. The tower was completed in 1930 for the New York Telephone Company. Modern amenities include an outdoor garden lounge, a 24-hour attended lobby and a fitness center. Many units feature private outdoor space.
One MiMA Tower at 460 West 42nd Street is located just west of touristy Times Square. Built in 2011, the glassy twelve-storied tower's name is short for "Middle of Manhattan" and features spa facilities and health club amenities. Apartments include floor-to-ceiling windows, washer/ dryer units and hardwood flooring.
The 540 West building on 49th Street consists of two seven-storied towers separated by a 6000 square-foot courtyard. The structure boasts a comprehensive fitness center, while units feature gourmet-style kitchens with stainless steel appliances.
Considered one of the most elite residences in the Hell's Kitchen vicinity, Griffin Court at 800 10th Avenue was built to accommodate its residents to the fullest. The heated marble bathroom flooring within units is just one of the many top-notch amenities that Griffin Court has to offer.
