It’s not every day that someone slaps down $18 million on a penthouse. It’s even rarer to be buying a piece of New York City history on Central Park West.
Now, T-Mobile CEO John Legere can kick it like a Hearst in his new deluxe penthouse in the sky.
As reported by NY Curbed, Legere purchased William Randolph Hearst’s Manhattan penthouse for that bargain basement price of $18 million, which dropped down from the $27.5 million it was listed at last November.
“The penthouse has a wrap-around terrace that overlooks Central Park and a second floor tower library with 14.5-foot ceilings that features a wet bar and stained glass windows,” Curbed states. “The intricate glasswork carries throughout the apartment’s lower floor, as does the resplendent carved wood decoration. ”
Maybe it’s time to celebrate? In August, T-Mobile finally passed Sprint to become the nation’s third largest carrier. At the end of July, the company also delivered a better-than-expected earnings report, with “continued customer growth of 2.1 million, 14 percent revenue growth to $8.2 billion and an overall profit of $361 million. That brought earnings per share to 42 cents, up from the 18 cents analysts expected,” as we reported.
With a prime location on the park, at 91 Central Park West and 69th, it looks like running in the park just got easier for Legere.
