Domino Sugar Refinery Prepares For Office Conversion

The Domino Sugar Factory master plan by New York Yimby

Designed by Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU) and developed by Two Trees, the project is the centerpiece of the Domino Sugar master plan by SHoP Architects and James Corner Field Operations and involves the construction of a massive barrel-vaulted glass roof atop the former factory. When complete, the structure will top out at 235 feet tall, while the interiors will be gutted and restored.

The Domino Sugar Refinery’s new life in the 21st century will boast the following: ground-floor retail, 12 levels of office space, a 14th-floor event space with double-height ceilings, a catering kitchen, and back-of-house areas. As for the rest of the Domino Sugar master plan, a mix of offices, market-rate and affordable housing, retail, and communal facilities aim to integrate with the Williamsburg neighborhood and create a more vibrant waterfront space.
