Definitively not 100 edit suites available at the Brill building.

Sound One used to be:

Six re-recording stages
Two ADR stages
One Foley Stage
Back rooms to support those
A Synclavier studio
Two in-house editing suites
Five audio transfer suites that employed 7-8 people, incl a dark room for optical tracks
A film to tape suite
A technical support dept that employed about 10 people and took up 1/3rd of the 7th fl
100+ editing suites/production offices
Several lunch areas with kitchens, and lounges for employees and clients, including outdoor space
And of course offices, a production area, accounting, etc.
Floors: all of 2, all of 3, part of 5, 1/2 of 6, all of 7, all of 8, all of 11, 1/2 of the basement, which included storage and employed in house carpenters/contractors. All together, about (if I remember correctly) 85,000 sq. ft.
90 people (give or take) were employed there, including eight full-time mixers, a few of whom doubled as ADR recordists when the two ADR guys were overworked.
And this was before Sound One took over Todd AO's Space on 54th St (after the merger with (or purchase by) Todd, and purchase by Liberty Media).

Leasing, unless something has changed in the past few years.

The Todd AO's Space on 54th St closed in 2007.
