The Latest News on the Domino Sugar Construction

by GWAPP on

In the past year things have been ramping up in the former Domino Sugar Factory. Last fall Two Trees Management purchased the factory proposing a new set of plans for the historic landmarked property. In the last few months, work has begun on asbestos abatement, a pop-up park in the former parking lot has opened to the public and now major demolition and construction is underway. It is expected that ULURP certification, which will begin the process of reviewing the new construction plan, will begin in the coming months.

As part of an effort to keep the community aware of upcoming construction activities, Two Trees Management has set up a new website with bi-weekly construction updates:
