John Legere and 91 Central Park West

John Legere, the unconventional CEO of T-Mobile, is cutting out of New York.

Known for his pink T-shirts and online cooking show, Legere listed his four-bedroom apartment at 91 Central Park West for $22 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Legere bought the 3,000-square-foot apartment for $18 million in 2015. He later received approval from the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to acquire the rights to the building‘s roof in order to expand the apartment by 2,246 square feet.

Those plans never came to fruition, however, after Legere signed a three-year contract extension with the wireless carrier, which has kept him in Seattle.

In its current form, the unit has 1,700 square feet of terrace space, and a tower lounge featuring 14.5-foot ceilings.

The expansion plan would preserve details like the apartment’s herringbone floors and stained glass windows, while “optimizing the Central Park views and vistas,” said Legere.

The apartment was reportedly once the love nest of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst and his mistress Marion Davies. Lee Mindel, the architect hired by Legere to expand the apartment, told the Journal he found Davis’ initials etched into a fireplace.
