Back in the fall, part of the old Domino Plant on Kent Avenue in Williamsburg was landmarked without a lot of controversy. In the end, even the developers of the New Domino project were behind it. So, the five-story glass box that architects Beyer Blinder Belle would add to the building will get aired out before the Landmarks Preservation Commission tomorrow. The Waterfront Preservation Alliance of Greenpoint & Williamsburg has posted a more renderings of and plans for the the historic factory building. Glass box or not, it would be surrounded by a lot of Rafael Viñoly apartment towers, which aren't shown in images.
The view looking west from Williamsburg to the East River, showing the building with the glass box, but no towers around it.
Another angle, from the north of the old factory on Kent Avenue. Again, the towers around it are missing.
