Two Trees Files Permits for First Domino Tower


Two Trees yesterday filed its first application for a new-building permit for the Domino site. The first high rise will be located at 2 Grand Street, on the far left of the rendering above, as NY YIMBY was the first to report.

Plans call for 35 stories and 658 apartments. The mixed-use development will have a total of 785,888 square feet, including 11,018 square feet of ground-floor retail and 75,145 square feet for community purposes. There will also be a school in the building, as well as the expected bicycle storage, children’s playroom, and gym.

While we don’t know how many units in this particular building will be affordable, Two Trees had previously said it might try to build the affordable units first to meet demand. The entire complex will have 700 affordable units out of 2,300 total.

Although SHoP is designing the building, Ismael Leyva Architects is the applicant of record. NY YIMBY speculated construction on the building may take two or three years.

Update: A Two Trees spokeswoman let us know Site E will be the first building built on the Domino site. Permits for the waterfront buildings are being filed so infrastructure work can start, she said.
