Brooklyn’s iconic Domino Sugar Refinery will become the centerpiece of a redevelopment project spearheaded by SHoP Architects and James Corner Field Operations for developer Two Trees Management.

The 3.3 million sf master plan replaces a city-approved master plan from 2010 and adds 60% more publicly accessible open space on a new street grid. The new development will also include office space, market-rate and affordable housing, retail, and community facilities.

The open space exists along the quarter-mile waterfront and includes a 5-block stretch known as the “Artifact Walk.” This elevated walkway incorporates into the park’s landscape the original gantry cranes, syrup tanks, screw conveyors, and other historical relics of the sugar refinery.

The development will alter Brooklyn’s skyline as the buildings will both relate to the height of the Williamsburg Bridge and also scale down to meet the neighborhood. Each building will be porous and feature a large opening to light air and light penetrate the site and spill into the neighborhood behind the development.
