Domino Moves Forward
June 29th, 2010
The large Domino Sugar factory project on the Williamsburg waterfront was just unanimously approved by the City Council’s zoning subcommittee.
The controversial project was supposed to be approved this morning, but further negotiations between the council and the developer held up the vote.
Councilmember Mark Weprin, the chair of the zoning subcommittee, said the changes to the application include: the two 40-story residential towers will be reduced to 34 stories, there will be a dedicated shuttle bus from the project to the Marcy Avenue station, any change in use to the project’s slated community facilities will have to go through the land use review process, and a community advisory board must be created to oversee the project.By Courtney Gross on June 29, 2010, 2:56 pm
