Developer Toll Brothers may have officially named 400 Park Avenue South Sky Couture, but the glassy blue tower will forever be known as the Fortress of Glassitude in the Curbediverse. The tower is reaching its topping out point, and the facade is being installed on the lower levels, so we're starting to really see the angular edifice's crystalline shape. Starchitect Christian de Portzamparc designed the 40-story tower, and these photos, taken late last week, show it from the northeast corner of 28th Street and Park Avenue South. At one point, it was reported that sales would launch by the end of 2013, but we're now entering the "holiday halt," so we doubt that will happen.
