Gallery: PHOTOS: Peek Inside the Sweet Walls of the Domino Sugar Factor...

With Two Trees Management set to transform Brooklyn's famed Domino Sugar Refinery into an affordable housing complex, there isn't much time left to enjoy it in its original state. Luckily, arts organization Creative Time gave the old factory a chance to shine by opening its sticky-sweet doors to hundreds of guests for its annual gala. The cavernous warehouse has yet to be gutted, and still bears a thick coating of burnt sugar on its ceilings and walls, filling the space with a delightful saccharine scent.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures but your facts about the development are totally wrong!

    Only 25% or so of Two Trees’ proposal will be “affordable housing” the rest will be $5,000+ studios and one bedrooms. 500,000 square feet will also be office space.

    And the gorgeous warehouse they held the gala in will be DEMOLISHED and replaced by 60 story Dubai-style towers! Only the central refinery structure is landmarked.
