Two Trees Management’s Domino Sugar site in Williamsburg to include office space

Two Trees Management has modified its all-residential plan for the former Domino Sugar Factory site in Williamsburg and will now include office space for up to 4,000 workers, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The company acquired the 11-acre site in October for $185 million and has solicited community input on possible uses. The office proposal, Two Trees principal Jed Walentas told the Journal, would help make the project a more vibrant development than the several apartments-only sites that have sprung up in the neighborhood in recent decades.

“They don’t make great urban places, they don’t integrate into the neighborhoods,” Walentas said. “What we’re trying really, really hard to do here is to mix in enough commercial office space to give this neighborhood and this community a sense of that feeling of vitality.”

The office space inclusion would require City Council approval. The former industrial site was rezoned in 2010 to account for a 2,200 apartment-only project. [WSJ]  –Hiten Samtani
