Developer Two Trees is the new owner of Williamsburg's Domino site, bringing to an end the long legal saga over the property. But it will be a little while before Two Trees can unveil the new new Domino, and in the meantime, the developer is seeking proposals for interim uses for a piece of the site. That piece is called Site E, and according to a document passed along by a tipster, Two Trees will be issuing a request for proposals for those interim uses tomorrow. Site E is a 55,000-square-foot vacant lot on Kent Avenue between South 3rd and South 4th streets, and it will be available for use by March, "for at least a year, potentially more."
The document mentions three Two Trees criteria for proposals: the developer "would like uses and activities that attract a wide cross-section of Williamsburg residents?that will appeal to different age groups and all members of the diverse Williamsburg community." So no hipster concert venues, please. Two Trees would also like a "responsible," "well organized" group willing to be a "good neighbor." And, of course, Two Trees wouldn't mind if that group mentioned how much money it planned to pay the developer for the privilege of using the lot. Got an idea for an interim use? Proposals are due by 4 p.m. on January 31.
