Domino Doesn't Fall

New, 3 comments

The City Planning Commission voted 13-0 in favor of plans for the New Domino development today, sending the controversial conversion of the old Williamsburg waterfront sugar refinery into a 2,200-unit mini village to the City Council. The area's councilman is no big fan of Domino, and has urged the developers to cut back on the project's density so as not to overwhelm the neighborhood (the City Council often votes in line with the local rep). The developers sound ready for the battle, saying in a statement that cutting back on the market-rate apartments "reduces the needed cross-subsidies and impairs the development’s overall economic viability." You buying that, Gretsch Building residents? [CurbedWire Inbox]
