One Approval Down for Domino Sugar Project

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

The redevelopment of the Domino Sugar plant at 316 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is beginning its board approval process.

CPC Resources, the development arm of the Community Preservation Corporation, is proposing building 2,200 apartments on the plant's site, which shut down nine years ago. As proposed, 30 percent of the projects units would be affordable and low to moderate income family housing. The project's design includes five towers, 6 to 40 stories high, and will incorporate the original brick refinery building and the yellow Domino sign on the building facing the East River.

The city's planning commission officially certified CPC's application complete and ready for review yesterday. Over the next seven months, the local community board and city council will weigh in on the proposal.
