WILLLIAMSBURG - Residents are upset over plans to turn the old Domino sugar factory along the Williamsburg waterfront into condominiums, green space and affordable housing units.

The project is now up for the public review process and many residents say they're worried about the influx of people the 2,200 units could bring. Some activists also say the plan will make it more difficult for low-income families in the neighborhood.

The review process is the first step to rezone the area for residential use. The community board and city council must also sign off on the project before it can move forward.
