PARK SLOPE — Luxury doesn't last forever.
Strong winds tore pieces of the facade off a luxury building that opened to renters just three years ago on Fourth Avenue and Sixth Street on Monday afternoon, the FDNY said.
Several FDNY companies responded to a 2:56 p.m. report of "Styrofoam-like debris" raining down from 278 Sixth St., which is right next door to FDNY Engine Company 239's firehouse, an FDNY spokesman said.

No injuries were reported, according to the FDNY.
The Department of Buildings special operations team was notified of the incident, a DOB spokesman said. Inspectors issued a violation for failure to maintain an exterior building wall, a DOB spokesman said Tuesday.
The 13-story building features balconies outside every apartment and a fitness center, according to a promotional video. A one-bedroom is currently on the market for $2,900 a month.
The current owner is developer George Rigas, according to city records. Rigas was not available for comment Monday afternoon and neither was a representative for the building's property management company.
