The former Domino Sugar factory is set to become a collection of massive high-rise towers over the next several years.
The original refinery building dates back to the 1850s. The building was landmarked in 2007 by the city. The historic building will sit at the center of the site and be redeveloped along with the vacant land.
Two Trees, a developer responsible for much of the new construction in DUMBO, acquired the 11-acre site in 2012 following a rezoning. Their plan calls for several towers of mixed residential and commercial space, as well as a waterfront park.
