T-Mobile CEO John Legere has just purchased a penthouse fronting New York’s Central Park for $18 million, Curbed NY reports.

The penthouse once belonged to publishing mogul William Randolph Hearst and first appeared on the market for $27.5 million a year ago.

Originally built in 1926, the unit has some historic features, like oak paneling, a tower library with 14-foot ceilings, and stained glass windows throughout.


Legere’s new penthouse is one of two that Hearst’s estate was attempting to sell in New York City. The other, a slightly larger property on the Riverside Drive, sold in July.
