400 Park Avenue South is a stunning and bold, 40-story, reflective glass shard of an apartment tower, the bottom 22 floors containing 269 rental apartments developed by Equity Residential and the top 18 floors with 81 condominium apartments developed by Toll Brothers.
It occupies the southwest corner of Park Avenue South and 28th Street and is known as The Prism. The rental entrance is at 50 East 28th Street. The condo entrance is on Park Avenue South.
Christian de Portzamparc, the French architect of One57 and the LVHM Tower, both on 57th Street, designed the project in 2003 for A & R Kalimian Realty, which eventually sold it to Equity Residential and Toll Brothers City Living.
Like the LVMH Tower, this project is rakishly angled but while the LVMH tower is mid-block and mid-rise, this project is more than twice as high and on a corner.
In contrast, the architect’s mid-block, One57 tower for Extell Development is “softer” with a few rounded setbacks, although, of course, it is much taller and therefore more prominent as it was the first of the new generation of “supertalls” and has a highly visible location when seen from the Central Park and the north.
Extell commissioned another project from the architect, Riverside Center, which consists of several angled towers centered about a plaza between 59th and 61st Streets on Riverside Boulevard. Based on renderings, those buildings do not have the sharpness of this project and their angularity is a bit compromised by their complex form and mixed façades. Extell subsequently sold off this cluster of towers to other developers who decided to use different architects for the buildings.
Gary Edward Handel was the “executive” architect on the project and designed the rental units and Stephen Alton Architect designed the condo units.
