Two Trees Management has begun the process of meeting with North Brooklyn residents to discuss the development of the Domino Sugar factory on the Williamsburg waterfront, Brownstoner reported. The developers most recently met with the community to get local residents’ input on the 3.2 acres of open space that’s part of the redevelopment plan.

Residents reportedly suggested building an ice rink right on the waterfront, a sports field and running track. Other ideas included community garden space, an area for food trucks, outdoor markets and even a structure similar to the High Line.

As previously reported, Two Trees closed on the $185 million purchase for the site in October.

Affordable housing remains a hot talking point, but Brownstoner said that it, as well as zoning and density, were not discussed at the community meeting. [Brownstoner] — Zachary Kussin
