Quadriad Reality is in negotiations to acquire land at Broadway and 190th Street in order to build four towers ranging from 22 to 44 stories. If the proposals go forward they could represent the one of the largest residential developments above 155th Street in more than a generation.

The proposed complex includes retail along Broadway, which runs between two of the towers.

Not since the four Bridge Apartment towers went up back in 1963 has a development of this scale been proposed for the area. At 32 stories each, those four low-income residences, which straddle I-95 at the foot of the George Washington Bridge, could be dwarfed by the new Quadriad complex–to say nothing of the competition with the Cloisters for skyline dominance.

The site sits next to Gorman Park and is a five minute walk from Ft. Tryon and Highbridge Parks.
