Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack is looking to unload his nine-room penthouse in the Lennox Hill’s Leonori building, according to Curbed. Asking price for the 3,650-square-foot duplex: $22.5 million. 

The home, according to the listing, has been “completely renovated in the spirit of the Dorchester in London.” The unit features a terrace and a solarium, views of Central Park, a maid’s room and a living room with the building’s only working fireplace.

Mack could be selling the unit to move to his other Upper East Side mansion, a 33-foot-wide limestone townhouse. That home,  at 165 East 70th Street, had been under renovation since he picked up the building for $13.5 million in 2009. The amenities include a 12-car garage that fills nearly the  first floor of the former carriage house.

Or maybe Mack is selling the penthouse to forget about Morgan Stanley’s rough year in 2012 — a half-billion-dollar settlement and accusations of targeting African-American borrowers with risky loans[Curbed] —Christopher Cameron
