Renovation of former Domino refinery part of $1.5B proposal to redevelop Brooklyn site

April 09, 2013

A proposed $1.5 billion redevelopment project in Brooklyn would include renovation of the Domino Sugar refinery building, plus construction of four other buildings and several acres of public parks. Two Trees, the current owner of the 11-acre site, say the project would include residential, office and commercial space.

One tower, and the project's centerpiece, would house luxury apartments in a building that looks something like an untorqued version of Rem Koolhaas' CCTV headquarters in China. The new Domino building would feature a school, a recreation center, and ground-floor retail, to be leased only to small-scale, independently owned businesses. The site would include a waterfront public park.
