Alan Colmes and his Silk Building penthouse

Radio talk show host Alan Colmes, formerly the liberal half of Fox
News duo “Hannity & Colmes,” has become the latest celebrity to come and

go at Noho’s famed Silk Building after selling his triplex penthouse
for $1.725 million, according to a deed filed today with the city.

Colmes joins Britney Spears, Keith Richards and Cher as
ex-residents of the 12-story condominium, which also used to house
Tower Records on the ground floor. Equinox recently signed on to open
Blink Fitness
, a cheap offshoot of the luxury gym chain, in the former
Tower Records space.

Colmes’ two-bedroom, 1,501-square-foot unit has been gut renovated
and boasts a private roof deck, solarium and wood-burning fireplace, according to the Corcoran Group listing.

It was initially listed for $1.995 million in March 2009 but endured
three price cuts — the last, to $1.799 million — before buyers James
Franklin and Catherine Haldy Jarman went into contract in March at 14
percent off the initial asking price. The sale closed last month,
property records show. Corcoran listing agent Margaret Heffernan was not
immediately available for comment.
