Domino Construction to Start in 2011; 1BBP Sales Update

New, 8 comments

WILLIAMSBURG?Whew, those were some crazy years of controversy, but the City Council finally approved the New Domino project today, which will turn the old sugar refinery into a 2,200-unit village by the sea designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, among others. Village by the river. Whatever. The landmarked Refinery building will be preserved, converted and topped in glass, and the 11.2-acre site will sprout a number of new towers, the tallest being 34 stories tall. Developer CPC Resources says the 10-year buildout will begin at the end of 2011, so there's still a few years of riding the L train under the normal crammed conditions instead of the upcoming god-awful conditions.

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS?It seems like every week there's an item on Brownstoner about an apartment at One Brooklyn Bridge Park selling for big bucks, but where does the converted bible factory stand overall? According to reps, 1BBP is "approaching its 50% sold milestone," and 202 units have found buyers. Sales have "surged" since Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 6 opened a few steps away. Not bad for a building that was not too long ago trying to recruit renters, right? [CurbedWire Inbox]
