To prosper in the next half century, New York City must focus on the following four development tasks:

  • New mass transit policy and operating systems;
  • New housing affordable to a wide variety of incomes of current and aspiring New Yorkers;
  • New office-building concentrations offering the best location, as well as high technical and aesthetic development standards, to ensure that New York City remains the forefront of global business and economic enterprise;
  • New missions and working models for the Departments of City Planning and Housing Preservation and Development.

To address the second of these needs, Quadriad Realty Partners has created the New-strategy: the sustained development of housing manageable for New York's middle-class—without resort to the politics and uncertainties of public funds and public subsidies.
