Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Cooper's Tricked Out Coop

1) Remember all that trouble Anderson Cooper had selling his West 38th Street loft after he bought another unit in the same building on a higher floor? Now we know why he was asking for a ton of money. Check out the workshop/apd renovation rendering of his new pad. Yep, that's a rooftop hot tub. Andy, call us! [The Real Estalker]

2) Ending an epic housing search, Mike Myers is putting $7.95 million worth of Austin Powers merchandising royalties into a 4,000+ square foot duplex penthouse at 72 Mercer Street, a new nine-unit loft building. According to the listing, the building has a "fitness studio," which must be some rich person version of what we plebs call a "gym." [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]

3) Why do so many celebrities (Nick Lachey, Orlando Bloom, etc.) get linked to the Atelier, even though it's way out in Javitsville? Could the rumored 20% discounts for boldface names have anything to do with it? Hmmmm! [S. Jho Ro/NYMag]

4) Over at Central Park West's storied San Remo, Billy Squier is about one S'mores-making sessions away from getting his ass kicked by Bono. [NYT]

5) What would the Denis Leary of old say to the Denis Leary of new when he heard that his future self paid millions of dollars to live in an apartment designed by someone named Winka Dubbeldam. We're pretty sure the F-word would be involved. But the 50-foot-wide living room with "a wall of floor-to-ceiling steel and glass" seems nice. We bet that "Asshole" song sounds great bouncing off all that steel. [Manhattan Transfers/Max Abelson]

6) Hamptons old white dude news: Roy Scheider goes in to contract on his Sagaponack home, a couple months after chopping the price from $20 million to $18.75 million. And Tommy Hilfiger wants to rent out his Further Lane summer home for the month of August ... for $350,000. Wow. [Keil]
