Looks very nice and I think it good to reuse a bit of the old plant in the new plans, and with this kind of development the riversides of the city will be used even better IMO..

The buildings are taller than the Williamsburg bridge towers! GOD I hate the design, btw. Ah, I'll miss that gritty area...

good work krull, Brooklyn is changing and new development like this is the by product. At least Brooklyn is getting a new kickass water front with it.

Looks quirky and the massing of the towers diminishes their bulk and accentuates the historical values of that old refinery. Absolutely love it!

I love that design! It totally fits in this place. But I think that less symmetry would have made the design even a lil bit better.

Teasing the Brits? sorry, but here in Rome (Italy) we don't call them like that. On the other side, everything I said I confirm it, with a small detail: I was referring to the city architecturally speaking (buildings, city planning,...) in case somebody didn't understand it (and looks like somebody didn't ). As for teasing the "Brits", it would be like shooting at the red cross. No fun at all.

As for this project, I think it's perfect: love the way the new buildings have partly the same building has the old one. beautiful.

Huge Domino Sugar plan clears last hurdle
Judge dismisses final major lawsuit against mixed-use development on Williamsburg waterfront that will include 2,200 residential units.

Amanda Fung
May 25, 2011 5:59 a.m.

The New York State Supreme Court late Tuesday afternoon dismissed a lawsuit against the rezoning of the former Domino Sugar factory site in Williamsburg, Brooklyn that was crucial to the redevelopment of the site...

The developer said it is on track to begin construction of the $2 billion redevelopment of the 11-acre Domino Sugar refinery site along the Williamsburg waterfront. The plans call for mixed-use development with 2,200 residential units. CPC expects to break ground on the initial residential development on the upland parcel next year...

The redevelopment plan was approved last July by the City Council. The developers said they plan to redevelop the 100-year-old landmarked refinery building and its famed Domino Sugar sign. The new Domino project will take 10 years to complete."
