Two Trees’ ULURP for Domino has begun: CB1 meeting Wednesdayby on
The clock has started on Two Trees’ ULURP request for the Domino Sugar development in southside Williamsburg. Last Monday, the Department of City Planning (DCP) certified the request. Certification in no way expresses approval of the plan, so much as confirms that the necessary paper work has been completed. To learn more about the ULURP process including next steps and time frames, check out: ULURP Watch: Greenpoint Landing Development is Certified.
This Wednesday, DCP will be presenting the Two Trees project to Community Board 1. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about what the project entails and what specific requests, changes, amendments Two Trees is asking to make. View the full CB1 agenda [PDF]. For those of you, who really want to get into the nitty gritty, view Two Trees’ Technical Memorandum (TM003) [PDF – 140MB].

New vs. Old Plans
It’s likely that in the coming months, you’ll hear a lot of “new plan” vs “old plan” talk. The new plan is the current Two Trees proposal and the old plan is the already-approved Community Preservation Corporation (CPC) plan. (The Comm. Preservation Corp. sold the 11-acre approved development to Two Trees in 2012 for $185 million. (source)) If the new plan is not approved for whatever reason, Two Trees can still legally build the old CPC plan.
