Council Approves Redevelopment Plan for Domino Site

The City Council has approved a plan to redevelop a section of Brooklyn waterfront where the renowned Domino Sugar refinery once stood.

The plan at the 11-acre site in Williamsburg will preserve the landmarked refinery building and 40-foot-high Domino sign.

The development will include 2,200 apartments, a public esplanade, retail shops and cultural and office space. The plan calls for 660 of the apartments to be low-income housing.
