Warner Music Group CEO Stephen Cooper has put his penthouse co-op at the tony Carnegie Hill building 1136 Fifth Avenue on the market for $30 million.

The duplex apartment is perhaps best known as the fictional home of “Gossip Girl” protagonist Blair Waldorf, portrayed by Leighton Meester. The building’s exterior was seen in the credits of the CW television drama that ran from 2007 to 2012. The show was not filmed there.

The unit features four bedrooms, a wraparound terrace, gym and media room. Broker Anne Young of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing.

Last year, Warner Music Group signed a lease for 288,250 square feet at Beacon Capital Partners and Paramount Group’s Paramount Plaza at 1633 Broadway in a $250 million deal, as previously reported. [Curbed]Mark Maurer
