The Rafael Viñoly Architects design for a new mixed-use scheme, New Domino, in New York, US, received approval for its zoning changes from the local council.

The scheme will feature 660 housing units and four acres of public park space including a riverfront esplanade along the East River in Brooklyn.

The structure will be located on the former Domino sugar refinery complex and is expected to house four waterfront buildings above 30 storeys tall.

The scheme has incorporated many water and energy efficient strategies in the design, and is also expected to achieve LEED certification.

Work on the project will begin in 2011, according to artdaily.org.

The New Domino project is sponsored by The Refinery along with the Community Preservation Corporation’s developmental subsidiary, CPC Resources as managing partner.
