The Sugar Factory is Safe


I was quite happy to read this, the only down note is that they won't save more of the historic architecture on the waterfront:

Domino Sugar Factory Granted Landmark Status

"It was a sweet victory for preservationists, as the Domino Sugar Refinery Building received landmark status Tuesday – saving it from the wrecking ball. The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted unanimously to bestow landmark status on the three connected buildings, which in their prime produced three-million pounds of sugar a day.

The new status will most likely send the site's owner, Community Preservation Corporation Resources, back to the drawing board on their plans to develop the area. The famous Domino sign would also be integrated into the development. The firm has said it does not see the need to save other buildings on the site."
