Waterfront Preservation


From the Greenpoint Gazette, a Domino spokesperson on the preservation of the Refinery building:

No other waterfront development is preserving anything…


The developer of the Austin, Nichols & Co. warehouse (pdf) is not only preserving a huge industrial building on the waterfront (five blocks from the refinery), they are doing so voluntarily, with historic preservation tax credits and a facade easement donation. And the building looks beautiful.

It’s unprecedented.
