Breaking Wind: Quadriad Development Williamsburg Site Has Another Bad Day

Williamsburgh Square Fence One

When last we ran a photo of the Quadriad Development site in Williamsburg between N. 3rd and N. 4th Streets and Bedford Avenue and Berry, it was also after some wind. Then, the fencing along Bedford Avenue blew down opening the vast building for visits. Yesterday, the fencing along Berry and N. 4th blew down, again making the huge building (which has been in slow motion demolition since spring) open to the public. (Including the excellent basement crapper pictured below.) You might remember that this is the proposed site of monstrous high rise development (that would require changing last year's rezoning) Quadriad has suggest putting up 28 buildings from 12 to 40 stories in the area between Bedford and Kent Avenues from N. 3rd to N. 6th Streets. If you don't, you can check out the details here.

We know. Picky. Picky. Especially the two-by-fours with rusty nails sticking out of them (see below). (For the record, a lot of construction sites in Williamsburg that we saw had issues with the wind. However, the Quadriad site was by far the worst we saw and the most wide-open demolition site in the neighborhood.)
