The New York City real estate community came together on June 5 to mark the grand opening of One Domino Square, the latest addition to the iconic Domino Sugar Factory redevelopment on the Williamsburg waterfront.

Attendees enjoyed cocktails and light bites while marveling at the breathtaking views of the Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan skyline. Guests also were given exclusive tours of the model residences and the building’s array of amenities, including an aquatics center with a heated indoor swimming pool and a fitness center with a yoga studio.

The event was hosted by Two Trees Management, the Brooklyn-based real estate firm behind the site’s redevelopment.

Located at 5 South 5th St., One Domino Square is the third residential skyscraper to rise at the historic Domino Sugar Factory site. The building, designed by Selldorf Architects, features 398 rental apartments and 160 condominiums for sale.

The Domino Sugar Factory, once the world’s largest sugar manufacturer, was originally constructed on the Williamsburg waterfront in the mid-19th century and became known for its enormous sign, visible from across the river, which was installed in 1969 and designed and manufactured by New York’s Artkraft Strauss Sign Corporation.

The iconic sign got new life earlier this year when it was repurposed into a new art installation in the lobby of the Refinery at Domino.

The Domino Sugar Factory closed in 2004, paving the way for one of the borough’s largest redevelopment plans.

Progress on the project includes the opening of Domino Park in 2018, which features design elements paying homage to the site’s industrial past, while the completion of the first residential towers — One South First and 325 Kent — in 2021 marked significant steps in the ongoing development.

When the Domino mega-project is complete, it will have almost 3,000 apartments, including a set number of affordable units, as well as 600,000 square feet of commercial office space and 200,000 square feet of retail. Just last month, luxury condominium sales began at One Domino Square, the site’s third high-rise residential building.
