Originally the building, located between 70 and 71 streets had 101 units but with apartments being joined over the years it is now 96 units and is one of the few buildings in the area that does not have a name like the area San Remo or El Dorado. The building was developed by Abraham Bricken and built by architects Schwartz & Gross, who were responsible for many other towers in the area.
The unit in the 101 building, which includes penthouses, was previously owned by Harrison . At one point deceased ABC newsman Peter Jennings also called this building home. Although the apartments in the 101 Central Park West are considered grand scale with incredible views overlooking Central Park (hence the name), they are very quiet luxury apartments.
Comparing 101 to its contemporaries like the San Remo at 145 Central Park West and El Dorado at 300 Central Park West, where many celebrities and high-profile business folks reside, the price for Briger's unit was on point. The Corcoran site does not list what the unit sold for.
