Planning Commission Votes Yea for Domino Project By Marc Bussanich Labor press (NY) March 6, 2014New York, NY - Last week the developer in charge to redevelop the old Domino Sugar Factory reportedly threatened to back out of the project because the mayor insisted more affordable housing units be built in exchange for zoning concessions. On Wednesday, all City Planning Commission commissioners voted yea to authorize the project.
Commissioner Irwin Cantor said while the city itself can't afford to build affordable housing, it enjoys the leverage of being able to sell land via air rights to private developers.
..."This is a project that has an extraordinary amount of community benefits in it. We've got 30 percent affordable housing. There's more than 5 acres of new public park space, a brand new public school and a recreational facility. With those public benefits there are costs," said Lambino.
