WILLIAMSBURG - Redevelopment plans for the former Domino Sugar Refinery in Williamsburg have entered the review process.

The new site, agreed upon in 2010, is expected to include 2,200 residential units, including 660 affordable homes.

Officials with Two Trees Management Company say their plan does require approval, and that’s why they had a meeting to hear the public's take on their vision.

However, the new design is drawing mixed reviews. Some people say the renderings are too fancy for an industrial area of the borough, while others say the developers are taking advantage of terrific views.
