The iconic Domino sugar factory sign in Williamsburg will start coming down this week.

The property's developer, Two Trees Management, says it's not sure how long the process will take because it's not clear how heavy the sign is or even how it's attached to the factory.

Once removed, plans are in place to re-install the sign on the $1.5 billion development taking the factory's place.

The development will have 2,000 apartments, retail space, a school and open space on the waterfront.

One of the original buildings will be restored and used for offices.

The City Council approved Mayor Bill de Blasio's backed plan in May.
