New renderings of the Domino Sugar Refinery redevelopment have been released by PAU architects. The developer, Two Trees Management has proposed an 11-foot height increase to the original design of 292-314 Kent Avenue, historically known as the Havemeyer & Elder Filter, Pan & Finishing House.

In 2017, the Landmarks Preservation Commission initially approved the plan to add a glass-domed building with a barrel-vaulted ceiling inside the brick facade of the centerpiece of the redevelopment.

According to YIMBY:

The PAU design team has proposed a height increase of the building’s domed glass roof from 224 feet to 235 feet. New elevation diagrams also appear to eliminate the building’s 16th floor. Instead, levels one through four, 14, and 15 include increased ceiling spans of varying heights.

Updated proposals also include a newly designed stair system positioned between the two volumes of the domed expansion. Previous iterations of the stair system existed fully within the glass structure.

Pending approvals, the building will include ground-floor retail, 12 levels of office space, and a 14th-floor event space with double-height ceilings, a catering kitchen, and back-of-house areas. According to Two Trees, the developers of the property, completion is anticipated in the early 2020s.
