BROOKLYN - Developers are trying to rally support for a high-rise affordable housing project in the building of an old Domino sugar factory.

Developers held an open house to try and rally support. Some attendees said they were glad the project would bring affordable, waterfront housing to the neighborhood.

The proposed development would bring 660 affordable apartments and is a $1.2 billion dollar project. However, the high-rises are taller than area zoning laws allow.
