WeWork co-founder Miguel McKelvey is looking to part ways with his Greenwich Village townhouse.

McKelvey, the embattled flexible-office-space company’s chief culture officer, listed the 5,000-square-foot home for $21 million, the New York Post reported. Douglas Elliman’s Clinton Stowe and Melissa Bolotow have the listing, which is also being offered up as a $50,000-per-month rental.

He bought the property at 18 West 11th Street for $12 million in 2015, city records show.

The Weatherman — a militant political group later renamed Weather Underground — accidentally detonated a bomb in the basement in 1970, resulting in three deaths. The 1845 townhouse was remodeled in 1978 and features a rear garden with a private entrance, a central atrium, a radiant heating system and a two-floor master bedroom. The pad is just north of Washington Square Park.

McKelvey, who co-founded WeWork with Adam Neumann in 2010, has largely stayed out of the limelight amid the firm’s aborted public offering, diminished valuation and SoftBank takeover and rescue package.
