Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Alba on the Prowl, Met's Mortgage

1) The rumor was that Jessica Alba was looking/buying at the LES's Switch Building, most likely for her brother. Now she's been spotted on the other side of town, for reasons unknown. Can Chelsea's family friendly 246 West 17th Street handle this hottie? We may just find out. [S. Jhoanna Robledo/NYM]

2) Diamond notes: Remember when David Wright bought the penthouse at the Infinity Flats in the Flatiron District? Since the Mets all-star is only super-successful and not quite super-rich just yet, the poor sap needed a mortgage on his $6 million buy. Yankee Jorge Posada did not need one for his $3.1 million 11th-floor buy in the Upper East Side's Seville, which now gives him the full-floor. [Josh Barbanel/Big Deal]

3) Ex-Beatle lover Heather Mills paid nearly $200,000 for her East Hampton summer rental, which happens to be owned by Nora Ephron. The property also happens to be across the street from "Grey Gardens." [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]

4) Construction at the domey O'Neill Building in Chelsea has completely messed up a neighboring building, where CW11 anchor Kaity Tong lives. Sucks, but at least developer Elad Properties is footing the bill for her Gramercy Park Hotel stay, right? Well, about that... [Page Six]

5) Someone has dropped some photos into the Curbed Photo Pool of Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz shooting their new movie in and around Dumbo/Brooklyn Heights. Fun, but when Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz buy in Dumbo/Brooklyn Heights, we'll get excited. [Curbed Photo Pool]
