New, 8 comments

HELL'S KITCHEN—A tipster sent the above picture, purportedly of the lobby in the highly anticipated Stella Tower (the sequel to Chelsea's Walker Tower). "The strips of marble in a herringbone patterns was breathtaking," the tipster tells us. Sales at Stella Tower launched back in May, and units are still being rolled out onto the market.

MIDTOWN—In addition to the Tifereth Israel Town and Village Synagogue, the Landmarks Preservation Commission designated another landmark yesterday: the Mills Hotel at 485 Seventh Avenue. From the press release: "[The] 16-story neo-
Renaissance building was the third and largest of the three model residential hotels for single working men erected by Darius Ogden Mills at the turn of the 20th century [...] Significant features include molded string courses and cornices, fielded panels, cartouches, lion heads, and a richly embellished Renaissance copper cornice."
