Get a sneak peek at The Refinery, a brand new office building constructed within the brick walls of the landmarked Domino Sugar Factory in Brooklyn!

  • Learn about the evolution of the Domino Sugar Factory site, from its opening by the Havemeyers family at the turn of the 19th century to its heyday as one of the largest facilities in the world
  • See 360-degree views of Manhattan from the breathtaking 27,000-RSF glass dome penthouse that crowns the top of The Refinery
  • Uncover how the developer (Two Trees Management), landscape architect (James Corner Field Operations), and lead architect (Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU)) are working together to combine new state-of-the-art, modern design with the original industrial facade to house a new age of workers
  • Explore Domino Park, the 6-acre public park that runs parallel along the entire 11-acre Domino Sugar Factory site and includes over 30 large-scale, salvaged artifacts — components of the inner workings of sugar refining, that honor the story of New York’s history in the sugar trade
  • See the large-scale indoor vertical garden lining the entire perimeter of the Refinery building, including vines, plantings, and 17 30ft tall trees that raise the bar for biophilic office design

About the event:

Located in the heart of Domino Park on the Williamsburg waterfront, The Domino Sugar Refinery is a landmark building that was integral to the development of the Brooklyn waterfront throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, the former 150-year-old Domino Sugar Factory plant, which produced over 98% of the country’s sugar in its heyday, is being transformed into an all-electric Class A office building containing 460,000 rentable square feet of top-tier office space, acclaimed local ground floor retailers, and exceptional on-site amenities including a penthouse open dome for gatherings.

Join us on a special insiders hard hat tour to view the construction progress of this iconic former industrial building being given a new life.
