Two Trees Management solicits proposals for portion of Domino Sugar site



Quote:
Two Trees Management is soliciting proposals for an interim use of a 55,000-square-foot swath of the Domino Sugar site in Williamsburg, Curbed reported. The request for proposals for the site, dubbed Site E, will go live tomorrow. The parcel is a vacant lot located on Kent Avenue between South 3rd and South 4th streets. It will be available come this March for a year or more.

First, Two Trees is seeking something that will appeal to all Williamsburg residents. Second, the developer wants a responsible group that is well organized and will be a good neighbor. In addition, Two Trees expects applicants to include details on the costs of their plans.
That's a generous portion of the site. neighborhood groups might want a supermarket there among other options...

Two Trees Reveals Community Desires for Domino Development



Quote:
Last month, Two Trees held several public sessions to gather community input about what residents would like to see in the New Domino, and it seems like the developer actually cares about what the community wants...

...The community wants commercial spaces that will be suitable for smaller companies and local businesses that are looking to grow within the neighborhood. The set-up of the Chelsea Market, retail on the bottom with offices on top, seemed preferable, and it was noted that the "vibe" of the neighborhood is really important—"It's why Gowanus is more attractive to many creative economy businesses than Downtown Brooklyn." No one wants chain stores, but a quality supermarket like Trader Joe's would be welcome. Space for food businesses was proposed ("Food industry in Brooklyn is 'sexy'"), but bars would not be welcome.

Pretty much any idea for open space in the city that you could possible think of was suggested for the outdoor areas: an ice rink, public art, beach, trails, dog park, community garden, hydroponic farm, education center, skate park, etc. A boat launch was seen as a must.

As for community space, no one wants another elementary school, as the area's school are "under-enrolled," but a creative high school would be great. People also really want a large, affordable meeting space, and some kind of cultural center. Suggestions included a children's museum, science museum, Latino cultural center, and community history center.

Well now. This project just got a whole lot more interesting. I count 55 floors in the tallest tower and 48 in the giant hollow cube.

Look closely at the third picture, I think there are 2 @ 55 story towers connected with a sky bridge.

Is that second one 55 also? Its sort of hard to tell from the angle of the render. Its at least close to 55. Perhaps the first tower(s) to top 600ft in Brooklyn? 630k sq feet of office is a lot for the area too. Maybe this huge development will spur further development in the neighborhood.

Looks much less commieblock. Awesome.

Still, the facade of the hollow building is too cluttered.

Davidson says that if this new plan fails, Walentas will "grudgingly" build the old one, but that would be "disastrous." "The city rarely gets this good a chance to extricate itself from a planning mistake. Yes, the new Domino would mean more creeping Manhattanization, but that sure is better than the alternative: the New Jersification of Brooklyn."

I need to see more renders. At first look, they're absolutely abominable. I saw a street view of the development and it didn't look too bad. But of course real life isn't going to be as shiny and bright as the renders.

More renders, courtesy of NYGuy of SSP.

Notice in the third picture, that what seems like single tower (the one next to the bridge) in the aerial are really two towers linked by some sort of platform.

This design is supposed to have more open space, which is a good thing, but other than that, I think I prefer the older design.

The 3rd render was the only render I really liked.
