Billionaire fashion designer Giorgio Armani dished out nearly $17.5 million for a penthouse in Manhattan that looks like a church, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The more-than 3,000-square-foot apartment is located at 91 Central Park West – a 16-story building that dates back to the 1920s.

Armani bought the place from John Legere, the CEO of T-Mobile US. Legere recently announced that he’ll be stepping down from his role at the company in 2020. According to the report, Legere bought the penthouse back in 2015 for $18 million and listed it for $22 million in 2018. However, he later took it off the market.

Armani already owns the unit adjacent to the penthouse. The off-market deal makes him the sole owner of the entire floor.

The four-bedroom penthouse features stained glass windows that boast views of Central Park, a wood-carved bar, and a 1,700-square-foot terrace. Keep reading for a look inside.
