Despite all the opposition
and potential problems
, the Brooklyn Paper reports
that newly revised plans for the renovation and condo-ification of Williamsburg's Domino Sugar Plant
will probably be approved today or Wednesday by the City Planning Commission, and then move on to an expected approval by the City Council
. Major changes introduced to the $2 billion, 2,400 apartment plan include trimming the tops of the left-most towers in that rendering at right, 266 fewer parking spaces than originally planned (for a still excessive total of 1,428) and maybe a 150 room hotel inside the plant. Of course, even with full approval in the next few weeks, the project still has a very long rezoning and construction process ahead, so don't expect those 5,000 new Williamsburgers to move in any time soon.
