Yesterday the Domino Sugar Factory opened up their waterfront space to the public for an Open House of sorts, but much to the dismay of those who showed up the buildings were not accessible (likely because they're unsafe, with old machinery around and floors are covered in mollases). The rendering for the future Domino homes can be seen here, and for those who still want to take a gander at the current indoor space, some photos from last year are here.

The day did provide some nice views and an update on the future conversion of the site. The NY Post reports that the 124-year-old landmarked building morphing into 2,200 housing units has gotten a lot of attention from those looking to buy. One agent told them, "I am very interested in buying property here. I love the architecture of the old Domino building." The project gets off the ground next year, and upon its completion there will be 660 units of affordable rentals or condos for those "earning between $25,000 and $95,000 a year."
