The Domino Sugar Factory redevelopment continues to make steady progress. Just under a year after Domino Park debuted, and a little over a year since construction wrapped at 325 Kent Avenue, the second building in the Williamsburg waterfront site has topped out at 42 stories.
Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Two Trees Management, One South First will have 330 residential units, 66 of which will be affordable; 150,000 square feet of office space; and 15,000 square feet of retail, including outposts for Roberta’s and Other Half Brewing.
The building, consisting of two interlocked towers, has a white precast concrete facade that replicates sugar crystals, in homage to the site’s history. The James Corner Field Operations-designed Domino Park, right behind it, also has details that come from the old sugar refinery, including cranes, columns, and tanks.
The first building completed at the site, the 16-story 325 Kent, has 522 apartments (104 of which are affordable), and is home to businesses including Misi, the famed restaurant by Missy Robins.
