Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Rosie! Tiki! Roger?

1) Rosie O'Donnell is giving her regards to Broadway. The Nyack resident just scooped up a pied-a-terre in the Platinum, the new building on 46th Street near Eighth Avenue with the creepy website. She wanted a place in the Theater District on a high floor, and that's what she got with this 22nd-floor two-bedroom spot, which cost her nearly $2 million. [Big Deal/Josh Barbanel]

2) Giant and press hater turned press and Giant-hater Tiki Barber is buying four apartments in the ridiculous sounding Miraval Living on the Upper East Side and combining them into one unit. It'll be reconfigured as a four-bedroom home with 3,500 square feet, and the total purchases cost him $6 million. [Gimme Shelter/Braden Keil]

3) Speaking of athletes, new Rangers star Scott Gomez has bought a duplex in Chelsea. Yep, a big butch hockey player will be living in the Chelsea Mercantile, also known as the building with the Whole Foods in it. Remember when everyone said buildings like the Mercantile would turn Chelsea straight? Guess they were right. [Manhattan Transfers/Max Abelson]

4) Now that Coach executive Reed Krakoff's 70th Street townhouse has recovered, he can sell off his 61st Street townhouse. And that's just what he did, to former Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters. The price on the renovated five-story home, which features a double-height living room with a 26-foot wall of glass overlooking the landscaped garden, was a hair under $15 million. That's $1 million less than the listing. [Keil]

5) Grey's Anatomy co-star Chandra Wilson has gone to contract at Fifth on the Park, the 30-story building on Fifth Avenue and 120th Street with a church inside it (the Bethel Gospel Assembly sold the developers the land under those conditions). She bought a three-bedroom apartment with terrace overlooking Marcus Garvey Park. [Keil]
