Location: Williamsburg, BK
Architects: James Corner Field Operation, SHoP Architects
Project Overview: James Corner Field Op turned Domino Sugar Factory site into an ambitious mixed use development project. Inspired by community input and the site’s rich history, a quarter-of-a-mile public waterfront park will feature a 5-block long “Artifact Walk” that incorporates the original gantry cranes, syrup tanks, screw conveyors and other historical relics. The new waterfront park offers a wide range of active and passive uses and will reconnect the neighborhood to the riverfront. Reigelman was invited to explore the play experience within Domino Park, which resulted in the creation of Sweetwater Playground.
