Add about $600,000, give or take, of the cost of the $1.2 billion redo of the just-landmarked Domino plant on the Williamsburg waterfront. This morning's Post reports the developers have run up a tab of $577,000 lobbying city officials for the zoning changes they'll need to do the project, which will include up to 2,400 new apartments. The spending is for 2006. No estimate on the added cost of sugar this year. The report may leave a bitter taste with people in the neighborhood agitating for preservation of the iconic Domino sign. The developers have said they may not find a financially feasible way to save the sign.
