Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: 740 Park's New Wang

1) There's no need to continue the speculation on when the 740 Park Avenue duplex owned by Vera Wang's late parents will hit the market. It's not hitting the market, because the celebrity dressmaker is moving in herself. That's a slightly morbid way to wind up in one of the city's most famous co-ops. Her current six-bedroom spread in nearby 778 Park Avenue will soon be listed for around $35 million(!). [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]

2) The One Madison Park juggernaut continues. Now nearly two-thirds sold, the 72-unit building might now welcome Hollywood power couple Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts into the fold. The pair may buy neighboring units and combine them, and in fact, Schreiber has reportedly already bid on one apartment. The average hotness rating of One Mad's future residents just shot up a few points. [WSJ]

3) Ranger great Brian Leetch is packing up the skates and heading out of the Bromley on the Upper West Side. The combined-unit apartment went for $3.718 million to a neighbor, in a deal featuring a bidding war and a broker who has pulled some shenanigans in the past. The building also houses current Ranger goalie Henrik Lundqvist. [Max Abelson/Manhattan Transfers]

4) Word on the street is that Alex Rodriguez has been checking out a $25 million estate in Greenwich, Conn. He currently lives in the Trump Park Avenue. Begin wild speculation about his future ... now. [NYP]

5) Remember on The O.C. how Marissa Cooper's dad Jimmy Cooper came back to town after his scandal and started sleeping with his ex-wife again after she already got married to Caleb Nichol? Why can't Tate Donovan's life be that exciting? Instead, he's just enjoying some family time in a summer rental on Fire Island. [S. Jhoanna Robledo/Movers]
