Armani purchased the four-bedroom unit last month for $17.5 million. This is a slight shave off its previous asking price of $17.995 million (after originally asking $22 million almost two years ago).
Armani, had reportedly been in talks to purchase the unit a few years ago since he owns a unit on the same floor and was going to create a full-floor unit. The sale didn’t proceed and instead T-Mobile CEO John Legere became the owner in 2015.
During Legere’s tenure there he oversaw an extensive renovation in conjunction with architectural design firm SheltonMindel to upgrade the interiors while still retaining it 1920s feel. The above living room has the original leaded and stained glass arched windows, wood beams and carved fireplace mantle that graced the home when it was built.
