The 3,000-square-foot penthouse at 91 Central Park West, a prestigious prewar co-op at West 69th Street, was reportedly owned by William Randolph Hearst. More recently, according to The Wall Street Journal, it was home to another mogul: T-Mobile CEO John Legere, who bought it for $18 million in 2015 with big ambitions. However, a contract extension kept him in Seattle and prompted him to list the apartment for $22 million.

Mr. Legere teamed up with acclaimed architect Lee Mindel and secured permission from the Landmarks Preservation Commission to expand the penthouse by acquiring the rights to incorporate the building's roof as a part of his home so as to optimize Central Park views and vistas. These plans never came to fruition, but a new owner could carry them out.
The penthouse retains many original details, including stained glass windows.
