Williamburg Waterfront's old Domino Sugar Factory in plans to be converted to a mixed

Williamburg Waterfront’s old iconic Domino Sugar Factory is going to be transformed into a mixed use Residential and Commercial Property at the foot of the Williamburg’s Bridge. The working model is on display at the American Institute of Architecture Center at LaGuardia Place, NY. Rafael Vinoly, the master planner and architect, introduced his project at the Center April 22, 2010.  Transforming it from a decaying waterfront eyesore to an important residential architectural development for New Yorkers is an important step for the Brooklyn Waterfront and  for Williamsburg and  how it relates to the Manhattan side of the East River. What a beautiful civic structure to behold from Manhattan.
