Perhaps we're behind the curve, but until recently we had never seen the official website for the New Domino, aka the redevelopment of Williamsburg's Domino Sugar Refinery. The site for the one of the biggest Brooklyn projects that may or may not happen has the usual boilerplate ("Plans include a goal of providing 30 percent of units as affordable housing within a new community of approximately 2,400 residential units and approximately 220,000 square feet of new retail, commercial, and community cultural facility space." etc), but more interesting are renderings of the mini-city's layout that are new to us. For example, there are drawings of the open space and esplanade that give a clearer view of CPC and Katan's plans for the 11-acre site. "Every street leading to the Domino site will be opened for the first time in over one hundred years, and will connect to the esplanade and the central gathering area," says the site. We shall see.
