  • 101 Park Avenue featured in the movie "Gremlins 2: The New Batch " from 1990, directed by Joe Dante.
  • Two of the three underground levels serve as a carpark.
  • Used as George Costanza's workplace in one of the Seinfeld episodes.
  • The main side is fronted with a public plaza, providing a link between the exterior and interior of the building as well as an urban breathing space in an area that lacks public open spaces.
  • 101 Park Avenue is considered in real-estate circles to be one of the most lucrative buildings in New York City.
  • An intresting result of the original plan configuration are two corner offices per floor offering as wide as 315° panoramic views.
  • Since its completion in 1982 it has been fully occupied, commanding some of the city’s highest rents.
  • The tower's plan is rotated at 45° angle from the block geometry to strike its presence on the only truly visible from Park Avenue and therefore prominent corner at 40th Street.
  • There are 22 columns on the perimeter of every typical floor.
  • The success of this building, in addition to the usual prerequisites, is attributable to its form and its interface with its context.
  • A 500,000 gallon off-peak chilled cistern, uses power at night in order to cool the tower during daytime, thus lowering energy costs.
  • Two corners of the rectangular plan were cut off and then added to the remaining corners, bringing the composition back to the block grid at creating alignments at the street with the base.
