He penned some of the most enduring power ballads of the early 1980s – classics like “I Want to Know What Love Is” and “Waiting for a Girl Like You.”

Foreigner guitarist and founding member Mick Jones continues to reap the fruits of that labor, having just bought a two-bedroom Soho co-op unit for $4.9 million.

The apartment at the Soho Gallery Building at 420 West Broadway – also known as 94 Thompson Street – features direct elevator access, a fireplace and a landscaped terrace, according to the New York Post.

Brown Harris Stevens’ Sophie Ravet and Rachel Glazer had the listing, which most recently asked $5 million, according to StreetEasy. While the deal has yet to hit property records, the Post pointed to loan documents bearing the 71-year-old Jones’ name.

The six-story building at 420 West Broadway, located between Spring and Prince streets, holds nine co-op units and comes with a doorman and private storage units.

The gut-renovated penthouse at the property sold for $10.6 million in 2012 — more than $5 million below its initial asking price. [NYP]Rey Mashayekhi
