Thomas Melone, the president and founder of Allco Renewable Energy, is saying goodbye to his grand Lincoln Square condos. The head of the New York-based firm that develops and invests in solar projects is asking $19.9 million.

Melone paid $4.6 million for the lower portion of the triplex at 43 West 64th Street in September 2006 and picked up the upper floor unit at the same time for $3.9 million, according to public records. However, it doesn’t appear that the units were ever combined.

“Bring your architect to explore this exciting opportunity to combine two contiguous penthouse apartments into one impressive triplex home boasting approximately 6,000 interior square feet and 2,300 exterior square feet,” Douglas Elliman’s Nicholas Palance writes. Combined the units have 14 rooms, seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

Building amenities include a private gated and covered porte-cochere “perfect for loading your car for weekend adventures,” according to the listing.
