Michelin star chef Missy Robbins plans to open a new restaurant at Two Trees Management’s $3 billion Domino Sugar redevelopment.

Robbins, who owns the Williamsburg restaurant Lilia, will take roughly 4,000 square feet at 325 Kent Avenue, the New York Post reported. The restaurant is expected to open next year.

In June, Two Trees announced that craft beer and specialty shop Mekelburg’s planned to open a 4,000-square-foot location at 325 Kent Avenue, the first retailer to open at the redeveloped site.

Meanwhile, Two Trees is still on the lookout for a tenant to fill 380,000 square feet of office space at the former refinery building at 292-314 Kent Avenue. Last year, Two Trees’ Jed Walentas indicated that he was looking for “creative” tenants to take the space. In an effort to lure such tenants, Walentas floated the possibility of an indoor skate park and customizable interiors.

The 11-acre redevelopment of the Domino Sugar factory site is expected to have 2,800 rental apartments across four buildings and 500,000 square feet of offices. More than 700 apartments will be considered affordable housing. [NYP]Kathryn Brenzel
