Two Trees has started to gather opinions from the North Brooklyn community on the future of the Domino Sugar Factory development, which they bought in October for $185 million. Nearby residents attended a meeting last week with the developers, who wanted suggestions for the 3.2 acres of open space part of the development plan. According to the Greenpoint Gazette, “Suggestions for a waterfront ice skating rink, running track and sports field were among those floated… Other suggestions included passive uses like community gardens, dog parks, more gathering space for food trucks, open markets and outdoor performance amphitheaters. There was also talk about the feasibility of a multi-level space similar to the High Line in Chelsea.” The landscape architects plan to design a more accessible waterfront than the plan under former site developer CPC Resources. Residents expressed concern over zoning, density and affordable housing, but those issues were not discussed at length in the meeting. Two Trees will meet again with the community in January for an update before taking the plans to the city.
