WILLIAMSBURG - The Domino Sugar factory is one step closer to being turned into a luxury apartment building after a City Council committee today gave its unanimous support to the project. The committee backed the plan after the developer agreed to reduce the towers to 36 floors instead of 40. It will still have 2,200 apartments, with 600 available for low-income families. The developer also agreed to provide a shuttle bus to the nearest subway station.

The project still has to be voted on by the entire City Council.

The developer says he hopes to break ground next year.
