. They eliminated one building entirely, which will open up a "central plaza" for ice skating, or roller skating, or flea markets, or concerts. The waterfront park would have space for kayak-launching, or volleyball, or bocce, or a beer garden, or a dog run, plus gardens and nature and shit. "The park will also have an 'artifact walk,'" Curbed adds
, "incorporating salvaged pieces from the Domino Sugar Factory, which [one architect] described as 'Wiliamsburg's version of the High Line.'"
