The redevelopment of the Domino Sugar factory on the Williamsburg waterfront cleared its last major hurdle yesterday when a New York State Supreme Court judge dismissed a lawsuit that had challenged the 11-acre site’s rezoning. According to Crain’s, the lawsuit, filed by the Williamsburg Community Preservation Coalition against the city and the developer of the project, Community Preservation Resources Corp., had charged that environmental reviews had been unsatisfactory prior to the City Council’s approval of the $2 billion plan last July. But Judge Eileen Rakower made her decision immediately after hearing both sides of the case, and now the CPRC says it is ready to break ground next year on the upper portion of the site. Ultimately, the project is slated to include 2,200 residential units, 660 of which will be affordable, and four acres of public waterfront open space. It is expected to take 10 years to complete.
