This month, Two Trees is seeking more community input on how to develop the Domino Sugar site it purchased in October. Today, the firm put out a formal request for proposals on “a fun and creative use” for Site E, a lot located on Kent Avenue between South 3rd and South 4th streets in Williamsburg. The idea is to do something with the site during the planning process, which will take more than a year, before construction begins. The lot is 55,000 square feet, and Two Trees envisions something that will be attractive to a wide variety of age groups and local residents. Two Trees also doesn’t mind being paid for use of the site, but it “is not a requirement,” said the RFP. Submissions are due by 4 pm on Jan. 31. Two Trees has previously met with locals to solicit ideas, and plans to arrange another meeting this month. So far, proposals have included an ice skating rink and High Line-style park. To ask questions or arrange a site visit, contact acarsonblair@twotrees‐dumbo.com.
