Earlier this fall, the first building at Two Trees’ three million-square-foot Domino Sugar Refinery mega-development topped out. The 16-story, $200 million tower at 325 Kent Avenue was designed by SHoP Architects, the same firm responsible for the entire Williamsburg project’s master plan, and features a two-winged scheme with a central courtyard. It’ll hold a whopping 522 rental units, 104 of which will be reserved for individuals earning 40 percent of the area media income. As of today, these affordable apartments are up for grabs through the city’s housing lottery, where availability ranges from $596/month studios to $979/month two-bedrooms.

When completed, the entire Domino complex, which is expected to take 10 years to complete, will yield 2,800 apartments, 600,000 square feet of commercial space, and a new school. Landscape architects James Corner Field Operations are working on a quarter-mile long public waterfront park, which will incorporate some of the sugar processing plant’s artifacts.

As 6sqft previously described, “SHoP’s tower rises from a large five-story base appropriately clad in red brick, complementing the saved 1884 Domino Factory building across Kent Ave. The podium will hold several retail spaces, 750 parking spaces and some of the building’s amenities… Along the Kent Avenue side, the three highest levels bridge the two wings together. The uppermost sixteenth level will be an amenity floor for residents.”
