Inside Trevor Noah’s new Sh1 billion apartment (Photos)

The South African comedian has now bought himself a new Sh1 billion penthouse suite within the Stella Tower in Hell’s Kitchen overlooking the Manhattan skyline in New York City close to Times Square.

The money seems to be rolling in from all quarters after Noah's new stand-up special Afraid of the Dark  made a debut last week on Netflix

Coincidentally, he has only moved floors from a ‘cheaper’ Sh1.5 million two-bedroom condo in the tower which he had been renting.

The three bedroom penthouse spread on the 17th and 18th floors of the building was initially seeking almost $13 million, but was most recently asking a little under $11.5 million.

It comes with 14-feet-high ceilings, oversized windows, an eat-in kitchen with all the fancy finished one would expect, large closets, solid oak flooring, and a 934-square-foot wraparound terrace.

The suite also has an en-suite master bedroom, walk-in closets, and solid oak flooring throughout.

The cast-iron master bath tub exudes a Great Gatsby-like opulence and from it Trevor can see the Empire State Building.

The building was redesigned in the hope of boosting the value and integrity of the Hell’s Kitchen property market, the neighbourhood where the likes of singer Alicia Keys was born and raised.

Being an art deco tower, the building was designed by renowned architect Ralph Walker in the ’20s in luminous colours, housing the city’s artisans and businessmen alike.

The JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group converted the tower to condos and put them on sale in 2014.

It seems the comedian’s dreams have finally come true, previously telling The Wall Street Journal, “As a kid I promised myself I needed to look at something no matter where I lived.”
