The transformation of the historic Domino Sugar Refinery into modern offices seems to finally be in motion.
Less than a year after the opening of its titular park, the second building on the Domino mega-project site developing along the Williamsburg waterfront is quickly rising.
The building opened in 2016, but the Brooklyn Public Library and cultural spaces at 300 Ashland in Fort Greene won't open till at least 2020, groups involved said.
Guests mingled over bluegrass music and munched on chips and ceviche at Brownstoner Open Houses on the rooftop at Two Trees' 45 Main in Dumbo last week.
Domino Park officially opened Sunday -- the fanfare included acrobatics, music and performances -- and was flooded with children all weekend.
There will be tequila, tacos, beer and wine, live bluegrass music.
Just a few more days and Brooklynites will finally be able to access more waterfront green space in Williamsburg.
When Domino Park opens to the public, it will have waterfront seating, picnic areas, bocce and volleyball courts, and a playground designed to resemble a colorful version of the former factory here.
The quarterly luncheon takes place February 27 at the Brooklyn Historical Society.
Surprisingly, a proposal for the adaptive reuse of the Domino Sugar Refinery was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission this morning with no changes.
