Domino Sugar Factory


Description

After 120 years of operation, the Domino Sugar Refinery closed in 2003. Since then there have been two schemes for the site. The first, designed by Raphael Vinoly in association with Beyer Blinder Belle in 2010, included new apartment towers flanking the 1884 refinery. In 2012 the property was sold to Two Trees Development who commissioned SHoP Architects to redesign the project features a mixed use community with about 2300 residential units with a larger office/ retail component. The buildings are also taller than in the Vinoly scheme allowing more open space.
